SAS writes in a press release that active EuroBonus accounts where the member has reached their current status level on their own, either by earning qualifying points or through qualifying number of flights, will automatically receive this courtesy benefit of getting their status extended for 12 months. This benefit will be applied to all status holding members whose expiry date of their qualification period ends between March 31st 2020 and February 28th, 2021. Gold members who receive their status from a Diamond member give away will not get their status extended without having qualified for the status on their own.

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.

A large number of airlines, including SAS’s partners in the Star Alliance have been earlier out to introduce status extension policies to its frequent flyers who are now hindered from flying. In this regard, SAS has been getting a lot of critics online for not following up.

EUROBONUS FAQ:

HOW DO I KEEP MY TIER? I PLANNED TO MAKE A RESERVATION BUT BECAUSE OF THE CURRENT SITUATION I COULD NOT.

Due to the extraordinary circumstances, SAS has decided to offer 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 31 March 2020 until 28 February 2021.

That means if you are a Gold member with a qualification period expiry date 30 April 2020 and membership level expiry date 31 July 2020 then your Gold membership level will be extended to
31 July 2021.
