Spokesperson Freja Annamatz said, the airline is aiming to cut emissions by at least 25 per cent by 2030. Annamatz added that passengers' buying behaviour has changed with fewer inflight sales and sustainability has become more important than ever before.

The SAS said, it is also trying to be more climate-friendly by using new, fuel-efficient aircraft, improving access to high-quality biofuel, and partnering with Airbus to develop electric and hybrid aircraft. (AIR NEWS)
