SAS to Launch Smart Pass in Scandinavia

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 15 June 2011

SAS will roll out a Smart Pass across Scandinavia this fall.

The SAS Smart Pass was successfully trialed earlier this year amongst selected members of its frequent flyer program EuroBonus in three Scandinavian cities.

The new technique is the latest within Near Field Communication (NFC), allowing EuroBonus Gold members to put the SAS Smart Pass on their mobile phone, which then acts as a wireless transmitter across the airport at Self Service machines, security, Fast Track, lounges, tax free shopping and by gate.

"Our customers really appreciate our mobile travel solutions, and we can see that your mobile and NFC is the future. We are therefore proud to be one of the first airlines in the world to offer such a smart solution as the SAS Smart Pass to our most frequent travelers, making their journey even smoother. The trial period earlier this year clearly showed that customers enjoy the product and that SAS is once again meeting customers' expectations," said Lena Rkaas, Vice President, Product and Customer Service.

The SAS Smart Pass will be rolled out across Scandinavia in September and available to all EuroBonus Gold members.
