Here’s the announcement from SAS:
SAS is now offering EuroBonus members a 12-month extension on their current membership level.
This benefit will be applied automatically to active EuroBonus accounts where the member has achieved current membership level on own merits, either by earning qualifying points or qualifying flights. The benefit will be applied to members that have a qualification period with expiry date March 31st 2020 until February 28th, 2021.
SAS remains completely dedicated to serving and rewarding our most loyal customers, even in these challenging times. SAS EuroBonus has for many years been a core vehicle to provide frequent SAS flyers with well-deserved features and benefits enhancing their travel experience.
These extraordinary circumstances have forced SAS to temporarily halt the majority of air traffic until further notice. This means that many of our loyal EuroBonus members are currently challenged to collect the qualifying status points and flights required to maintain their membership levels within the 12-month qualification period.
Even though the full extent and impact of Covid-19 is still unknown, SAS has decided to honor our frequent flyers’ dedication and engagement. We will continue to closely monitor how the situation progresses and determine if additional measures need to be made.
