Different SAS

Post by Sabena320 »

Hello,

Yesterday I saw a SAS Braathens landing at BRU.
Now I like to know what's the difference between SAS and SAS Braathens? Is it like easyJet and easyJet Switzerland?

So SAS Braathens uses the same routes as Braathens did or does SAS uses the planes also for their routes?

Here is a small explanation:
SAS Braathens has its background in the merger of Braathens and the Norwegian part of Scandinavian Airlines in the spring of 2004. SAS Braathens are operating on the Norwegian domestic market as well as the international from Norway to other European countries.

SAS Braathens is flying under a different AOC CNO, not under the SAS AOC as SAS Denmark, SAS Sweden and SAS Intercontinental do. The SAS Braathens aircraft can either have the normal SAS colours, the old Braathens colours or the new SAS Braathens colours. If use a radio scanner, you will notice that SAS Braathens flights under the new AOC will use the call sign Scanor, not the normal SAS call sign Scandinavian

Not all of the ex. SAS aircraft are transferred to the new AOC - but this will be completed within 9 April (next aircraft to be transferred will be LN-RRT and that tomorrow 2 March). To identify a SAS Braathens aircraft - look for a small Norwegian flag on the forward wheel well hatch.

For those of you who want to know more about SAS Braathens - here is more information (fleet list, network maps, aircraft with new C/S, AOC transfer, key facts, ...)

Like LN-KGL already indicated, SAS doesn't exsist anymore. It has been spit up in 4 units:
SAS Sweden, SAS Denmark, SAS International, and SAS Braathens (wich is a merger of the newly formed SAS Norway and Braathens, an airline they also owned. Since the Braathens name was stronger then the SAS name, they decided to keep the Braathens and just add SAS.
