28 October 2007

Following recent accidents involving aircraft involving the Dash 8 Q400 type, SAS`s management, following an unscheduled meeting of the Board of Directors, has decided to immediately discontinue the use of this type of aircraft.
`Confidence in the Q400 has diminished considerably and our customers are becoming increasingly doubtful about flying in this type of aircraft. Accordingly, with the Board of Directors’ approval, I have decided to immediately remove Dash 8 Q400 aircraft from service,’ said Mats Jansson, President and Chief Executive Officer of SAS.
