Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) is a multi-national airline for Denmark, Norway and Sweden, and the leading carrier in the Scandinavian countries. Founded in 1946, based on the visionary idea that the three Scandinavian countries were too small independently to develop a major international airline, but if they joined forces they would be able to challenge international competition. This assumption has been proven correct many times over as testified by numerous industry awards, most recently the status of European most punctual airline. SAS is known for its two key philosophy, a mantra of its Scandinavian roots – Service and Simplicity.

In 1997 SAS become a founding member of Star Alliance airline partnership together with US United Airlines, Japanese All Nippon Airways and German Lufthansa. The Star Alliance network today brings together 21 of the world’s finest airlines and have created a unique and easier travelling experience.
