Snowflake towards southern climes

Snowflake towards southern climes March 30 is the launch date for Scandinavian Airlines' low-price concept called snowflake. The concept has already attracted the attention of customers. To date, more than 90,000 tickets have been sold. Snowflake is aimed at leisure travelers who want to travel in an inexpensive and uncomplicated manner to the Continent or from the Continent to Sweden and Denmark. With low prices, a new design and simplified service, snowflake is a new offering, which the market is demanding. "We have succeeded in combining the product's simplicity with corresponding simplicity in production, which is a requirement for the low prices we offer. Snowflake includes the important and sound components of Scandinavian Airlines in the form of safety and a high level of customer care. Pilots and cabin crew are from Scandinavian Airlines. However, the name snowflake underlines that this is a separate business unit, standing on its own feet," says Eva-Karin Dahl, Director of Business and Concept Development, with responsibility for snowflake.
