160 Million Dollars in Compensation for SAS

The SAS crash-landing in Lithuania

Canadian airplane manufacturer Bombardier has agreed to pay 160 million dollars to Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) in compensation for cancelled flights due to construction faults.

An investigation had found out that SAS had been flying with Dash-8-Q400 planes which had faulty landing gears. In 2007, several SAS planes were forced to conduct emergency landings after the pilots had discovered difficulties with the gears.

SAS’s 27 Dash-planes had to be grounded for weeks until the problem was solved - which caused a huge deficit for the already troubled airline.

Now Bombardier has signed a deal with SAS including compensation payments and 27 new Dash-planes.
