Posted on in Members' News

NORWAY: Flytoget customers can now earn SAS EuroBonus points taking the express train to and from Oslo Airport.

From the middle of March 2016, SAS EuroBonus members are able to earn points when taking the Airport Express train to and from Oslo Airport.

“The Airport Express is an efficient and environmentally-friendly choice, and I am delighted that we have entered into this partnership,” says Eivind Roald, SAS Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer.

In 2015 9.8 million SAS passengers travelled to and from Oslo Airport. Flytoget has carried 6.6 travellers in 2015 and, according to the airport express CEO Linda Bernander Silseth, most of these travelers are EuroBonus members.

“Flytoget is very proud to have entered into agreement with SAS and we look forward working together,” Silseth said. “SAS and Flytoget both strive to create high quality travel experience for our customers. Seven out of ten Flytoget passengers are EuroBonus members, so this brings clear added value to most of our travellers.”

The agreement was signed on 22 January and came into operation in the middle of March.

EuroBonus members will earn 100 SAS EuroBonus Extra points on every journey they make with Flytoget if they buy their ticket in the Flytoget App or travel ticketless.

Passengers who buy concessionary tickets (senior citizens, students, national service personnel etc.) will earn 50 SAS EuroBonus Extra points. Staff at Oslo Airport are currently unable to earn SAS EuroBonus Extra points from their Flytoget journeys.

SAS EuroBonus members can earn points when travelling by Flytoget, even if they do not go on to fly with SAS.

Work is still on-going to develop further revenue solutions and payment options.
