SAS Safety Checks Late

Sweden’s Civil Aviation Authority is harshly criticising the Scandinavian Airlines System for not carrying out safety checks on its planes on time.

The newspaper ”Svenska Dagbladet” reports that five SAS aircraft, which are used for long-haul flights to the US and Asia, didn’t undergo the required inspections on time last year. In once case a plane flew for 225 hours before it was certified as being airworthy.

The head of the Civil Aviation Authority says the delays are considered ”serious” but points out that SAS remains a ”safe company” and had notified them of the lapses itself.
