SAS Safety Criticised

Published onsdag 21 november 2007 kl 11.41
SAS Dash plane crashed on landing in Denmark

Scandinavian Airlines has come in for strong criticism about its safety standards.

The Danish newspaper “Jyllands-Posten” reports that a security expert at the Norwegian civil aviation authority has written a letter to his colleagues in the other Scandinavian countries saying that it is just a matter of time before SAS suffers a serious accident.

The letter notes one incident in which a flight went ahead, after the pilot reported seeing fuel leaking from a wing. The warning was written before the recent series of accidents involving Dash turbo-prop planes.

The airline has rejected the criticism and the Danish and Norwegian civil aviation authorities have issued a press release saying it is safe to fly with SAS.
