The Sweden-based Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) is – like many others – already preparing to deal with the flygskam movement.


Head of environment and CSR Lars Andersen Resare said he had seen a general decline in demand but added this was down to several reasons. He said he was pleased by his country’s increasing awareness of the need to be sustainable.


“[The conversation] is not only about aviation; it is good as we get to debate and discuss it,” Resare said.


He added SAS was preparing for a cleaner future, largely by overhauling its fleet as it seeks to cut its total emissions by 25% by 2030.


“That’s quite ambitious compared with other airlines, but we can do it with our fleet renewal,” Resare said.


He added the airline currently has an order with Airbus for 80 A320s, eight A350s and a couple of A321s with completion expected by 2023. SAS is also working on growing its use of sustainable fuel, while Resare is confident working with other transport sectors like the railways will also improve the situation.


“Our interest is in looking at inter-modal solutions where we connect rather than compete,” he added.
