Does SAS Sverige/Sweden have a specific fleet of aircraft assigned for their flight operations within Sweden and routes to the rest of Europe from Sweden? If so, what types and how many of each? (even if only a reasonable approximation) Also, do aircraft in service with SAS Sverige carry any special identification markings? (ala the Norway flag decals on a/c assigned to SAS Norge)

They use MD8X and 737NG (600's, 700's and 800's). Not sure about how many of each. Don't think they have any specific markings.

SAS is now one company. It went back to being one in 2009. It's no longer SAS Norway, Denmark, Sweden and International. However you can still find for instance the Norwegian flag on aircraft that used to fly for SAS Norway. Don't know if they plan on continuing to have this or if it's just something that is left behind

I beleave SAS Sweden used to have alot more MD 80 versions, while SAS Norway used to have more B737 and SAS Denmark used to have more A320's and CRJ'


Not sure what the situation is now

Norway has the most aircraft I beleave

As said above, SAS Sweden does not exist anymore. However, the ARN-based shorthaul crew are either flying MD-80 or 737-600/700/800

In the past some planes were flying with SAS Norge and SAS Braathens.
Today everything is flying under SAS AOC.

On a related subject... are some MD-80 and 737 types operated by SAS today specifically allocated for flights within Sweden and/or Norway in a single-class all-Y configuration?

Seem to recall that, in the past, some 737-883s were delivered to SAS with something like ~170 seat all-Y cabins for domestic (and charter) services...and whereas MD-81/87s were used mainly on flights to points outside of Scandinavia, the MD-82s were used primarily on domestic and intra-Scandinavia routes in a higher-density all-Y configuration (and probably on charters as well).



Quoting Mortyman (Reply 2):
A320's and CRJ'

Which type of routes are typically flown by the A319/321s and CRJ-900s of SAS?

All cabin crew at ARN operate B737 and MD80. Some also operate, on top of those two aircraft types, A330/340.

No, they are used all over the network, however it's more likely to see (one of the few) the 150 seats 737-800 on heavy business destinastions such as LHR
