After the announcement, SAS informed travellers of this decision and proceeded to reschedule for other flights, a source from the company told Reuters that these cancellations are due to the strike, but also “to the delay in the delivery of aircraft”, admitting that “ there is no noticeable drop in demand”.

In July, SAS transported 1.3 million passengers, corresponding to a growth of 23% compared to the same month of 2021, causing capacity to have increased by close to 8% compared to the same period last year.

Compared to the previous month of June this year, the number of passengers transported grew by 32%, while capacity fell by 23% as a result of the 15-day strike by the pilots.
