SAS announces further information on SAS Braathens.


Scandinavian airline SAS released on Thursday (25 March) further information on its plans to organize all airline operations in Norway in a single company.

Scandinavian Airlines in Norway and Braathens would be merged into a new airline, SAS Braathens, which would serve routes in Norway and between Norway and the rest of Europe.

SAS Braathens would initially have a route network comprising 41 destinations, from Longyearbyen in the North to Las Palmas in the south, according to the company.

The route network would be served by a fleet of some 50 Boeing 737 aircraft.

SAS said that the integration of the administrative functions in Braathens and Scandinavian Airlines into the new business would lead to immediate over-manning, but it was still too early to say how many employees would be made redundant.

The airline said that SAS Braathens would play an active role in the market from May 2004.
