SAS prepares new organisation in Norway - report.


Scandinavian airline SAS is reportedly preparing a new organization in Norway, after its merger with the Norwegian airline Braathens.

The new airline would reportedly be some 10% more expensive than its competitor, the airline Norwegian.

The new airline, the name of which will be revealed later, would have a fleet of 50 Boeing 737 aircraft and an administrative staff of around 200, some 150 employees less than the two companies currently have.

The airline would reportedly be responsible for all domestic flights in Norway, and all flights from Norway to abroad, except the service from Oslo to Copenhagen.

Annual turnover for the airline is expected to amount to some NOK10bn and the operating result to some NOK500-800m.

The final proposition of the company will be presented to the board of directors of SAS Group on 10 March 2004, reported the Norwegian newspaper Dagens Naeringsliv.
