SAS management seeks to merge SAS and Braathens.


The management of Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) is reportedly proposing combining its two carriers in Norway.

The SAS management has proposed that the two carriers - SAS and Braathens - be merged into one unit to improve efficiency. SAS took over Braathens in 2001, however the carrier continued to operate under its own name and with its own organisation in Norway.

A key condition in the merger would be reaching new staff contracts that would cut salaries and alter working conditions, according to the management.
