In line with the increase in digital availability, printed newspapers are disappearing from the gate of SAS flights. Since summer 2014, a selection of newspapers has been available to download to a smartphone or tablet ahead of a trip on SAS. However, printed versions will still be available in lounges.
The choice of digital newspapers is now being increased and SAS is also partnering Readly that will enable SAS EuroBonus members to access their huge range of publications.
“SAS customers are becoming increasingly digital and we are continuously developing our app to meet their needs. This increased choice in the SAS Newsstand and our partnership with Readly means we can offer a good digital solution where customers can also access a broad range of newspapers up to 22 hours before they travel,” says Eivind Roald, Executive Vice President Commercial, SAS.
These changes come into force 1 March. The SAS app can be downloaded from the App Store, Google Play and Windows Phone Store.
