Save your Aussie dollars and keep your comforts with SAS Combination fares to Europe
"The concept of combining service classes in this way, has wide appeal for those seeking more choice than your standard Economy or Business class options" Lars Olofsson, General Manager Scandinavian Airlines Australia and New Zealand said. "With the strengthening of the Australian dollar, it is an ideal time to consider heading to Europe, whether planning a business trip or holiday."
With a Business Combination fare, for instance, customers fly Economy class between Australia and Asia with SAS partner airlines then, for the longer sectors to and from Europe, fly SAS Business class in absolute comfort and style with all the additional benefits.
"The majority of the journey is in Business class but you don't pay the full Business class price, so it offers the combination of the best comfort plus incredible value," Olofsson said.
The Economy Extra Combination fare is another alternative for those seeking comfort, space and service at an affordable price. Customers again fly between Australia and Asia Economy Class, and then continue onwards in Economy Extra to their final European destination.
SAS Economy Extra has many benefits – 38 inch leg room, extra-large leg rest and footrest, video and audio on demand, greater baggage allowance, premium meal service, comfort kit, Business class check-in, Fast Track airport security and priority boarding. "All these little 'Economy Extras', make long haul travel a much more comfortable experience all round," Olofsson said.

Prices include taxes and surcharges and based on Sydney – Copenhagen and return.
