Norwegian pilots' union comments on SAS testing proposal.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2001 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

SAS, the Scandinavian carrier, is reportedly considering testing its pilots for alcohol abuse in combination with the compulsory medical check-ups.

The Norwegian pilots' union objects to the proposal for random sampling as it does not want pilots to be stigmatised by the testing. According to Lars Johannesen, secretary-general of the pilots' union, the union is not against testing pilots for early signs of alcoholism in connection with medical check-ups.

The union has not informed SAS of its views, reported Verdens Gang, a Norwegian newspaper.
