Troubled times for SAS over
The Scandinavian airline says a vast savings programme has helped lift the group to a robust profit in 2006.
It posted a net profit up 18-fold to 675 million dollars.
The New Chief Executive, Mats Jansson, says he expects continued favourable growth as there are no indications of a slowdown in the economy or the airline market.
SAS, which was on the verge of bankruptcy a few years ago, has been struggling with overcapacity, rising fuel costs and competition from no-frills airlines like Ryanair.
