Chapter 11

SAS files for Chapter 11 in the US - No impact on our customers.

Chapter 11

SAS and certain of its subsidiaries have voluntarily filed for chapter 11, a legal process for financial restructuring in the U.S. that will enable us to accelerate the implementation of key elements of our transformation plan, SAS FORWARD.

Our operations will continue as usual during this process and it will have no impact on our customers.

Please visit for more information.

In connection with the new investments and ownership structure, SAS intend to eventually join the airline alliance SkyTeam, at which time we will exit Star Alliance.

While we are proud to have been a founding member of Star Alliance, we are confident that joining SkyTeam will further strengthen our customer offering. Importantly, nothing is changing as of now.

We still need to obtain regulatory approvals and meet certain conditions to complete the investment transaction and change alliance.

Here’s what that means for our airline and for you as a EuroBonus member:

  • You can continue to book flights with us as usual. We look forward to continue welcoming passengers in Scandinavia today, and well into the future as we move forward as an even stronger airline.

  • Until we complete the transaction, we remain part of Star Alliance. You as a EuroBonus member will continue to enjoy your usual benefits when flying on our partner airlines, and you will be able to accrue and redeem points on Star Alliance partners - just like today. Award bookings with our partners remain valid.

  • As a EuroBonus member, you can continue to accrue and redeem points on SAS and on non-air partners.

  • Your status and benefits as a EuroBonus member when you fly with SAS will not be impacted.

We will keep you informed about what to expect over the coming months and will provide updates on the EuroBonus website under latest news.
