"Many also have policies requiring employees to travel in economy class. The new price structure increases the amount of choice and offers customers possibilities to make savings." Business offering on two service levels The customer must be able to expect service in relation to price. Accordingly, business travelers selecting the new Economy Flex or Economy Fixed prices will receive a generally lower service level, such as check-in as Economy Class passengers, no lounge access and simpler service in Economy Class on board. However, they will receive 50-percent more EuroBonus points than leisure travelers. Those business travelers who select Business Class will find a new and modern service concept on board as of March 30. The meals comprise fresh dishes of high quality, adapted for today's business traveler. Business Class travelers are also offered a 24-hour phone service, advance seat booking, priority check-in at the airport or continuously enhanced self- service, access to SAS Business Lounges, the possibility to take 30 kg of baggage, better comfort on board and double EuroBonus points compared with leisure passengers. Web check-in extended All passengers in Scandinavia can now check in via www.scandinavian.net for travel within Scandinavia. Effective March 30, this can also be done for the initial leg of a journey to the Continent. Ticketless travel using e-ticket or Travel Pass Corporate now functions for more than 75 percent of SAS destinations throughout Europe. Successive roll-out is under way for remaining destinations.
