SAS Reach Agreement with Cabin Unions

SAS has reached agreement with the Swedish cabin unions and the Danish
cabin union regarding collective agreements for 2003.

The agreements, which are a requirement for the complete implementation
of Plan C, include the possibility of increased productivity per
employee, as well as a wage freeze during 2003.
The rules regarding 3-2-2 crewing on Scandinavian Airlines`
intercontinental routes will cease to apply from March 1, 2004. A
successive transition solution will be employed, meaning that
Scandinavian Airlines will man its intercontinental routes on the basis
of needs and prevailing production conditions.
“I am satisfied that, after long and often intensive negotiations, we
now have collective agreements with two of the three countries` cabin
unions,” says Sören Belin, Executive Vice President & COO Scandinavian
