SAS aircraft flew without inspections
16 January 2006

Scandinavian airline SAS said it was tightening up the inspection and servicing of its planes after Swedish authorities identified gaps in its safety checks on 10 aircraft. The aircraft hadn’t been inspected according to international regulations after engine installations. The Swedish CAA reported that the company`s international operation permit could be limited or withdrawn as a result of the misconduct. SAS said the problem could partly be due to the fact that some of the maintenance had been outsourced to other companies. (AP, Reuters)
