SAS Scandinavian Airlines

Scandinavian Airlines or SAS, formerly Scandinavian Airlines System, is a consortium based

in the three Scandinavian countries Denmark, Norway and Sweden. SAS Group, which runs

the consortium, is owned by half of the three countries (17.9 percent by Sweden, 11.9 percent

by Norway and 14.3 percent by Denmark) and the remainder by private investors, including the

Wallenberg sphere. It was formed through a merger of several airlines from Sweden, Norway

and Denmark. The consortium’s operations consist of domestic, European and intercontinental

traffic. SAS has bases in five Scandinavian cities: Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo, Stavanger

and Trondheim. Intercontinental traffic is based on Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen. Some

traffic takes place through the subsidiary Scandinavian Airlines Ireland. The Group’s head

office has since 2014 been based in Frösundavik, Solna.
