One billion DKK for SAS


The airline company (co-owned by Denmark) has losses amounting to one billion DKK after the two-week long strike. Losses will most likely have to be covered from the taxpayer’s pocket. 

  • Venstre supports the idea of giving SAS more money. Why? Copenhagen Airport is an important regional traffic hub thanks to SAS. They say that if the cost-reduction plan SAS Forward will be implemented then the company can become sustainable. 
  • According to the Radikale Venstre (Social Liberals), SAS is part of the critical infrastructure in Denmark and therefore needs to be saved. 
  • Although DF initially supported helping SAS, after the strike they changed their position saying that SAS has become a “black hole” for the taxpayers’ money.
