From traditional airline to modern lifestyle company

Northern Europe

Lynxeye helped SAS develop a brand strategy in line with their vision. The strategy fortified the SAS brand's strengths, while also looking towards future opportunities outside flying, and laid the foundation for many strategic initiatives in coming years.


In 2015, SAS had an ambition to become a premium airline in line with their vision, “To make life easier for Scandinavia’s frequent travelers.” The current brand strategy was not aligned with the overall strategy and could therefore not guide the development of the SAS experience.

In order to take a modern premium position on the market, SAS needed Lynxeye’s help to understand and fortify its strengths with frequent travelers, while also looking towards new areas that the brand could own.


Lynxeye equipped SAS with a detailed understanding of the frequent travelers in Scandinavia by mapping their drivers and frustrations.

By truly understanding SAS’s core target groups, we could develop a brand strategy tailored for a modern premium airline, that covered both current and future opportunities. The strategy stretched beyond flying, setting a foundation for the brand and clear direction forward.
