Hi there,

I have a question regarding the origin of the SAS planes (sorry, if this topic has already been discussed; please redirect me, if it has).

As all of us know, SAS fleet consists of planes registered in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, but what is the actual relationship between particular aircraft and the country it is registered in? I mean, what are the rules, that SAS follows registering the particular airplane here, not there?

Perhaps this question deals with the actual corporate structure of Scandinavian Airlines. Yes, surely this airline is somehow unique in a worldwide scale.

If anyone could share some information on this topic with me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Many years ago there was a rule stating that 3/7 of the fleet should be registered in Sweden and 2/7 each in Norway and Denmark. This rule has since been scrapped and been replaced so that each aircraft is registered in the country with most favorable terms. This has meant that many aircraft were registered on Swedish and Danish register. IIRC, Sweden doesn't allow sale and leaseback deals which has meant that many aircraft left the Swedish register after a short time for the Norwegian register to allow for these deals. I don't know if the new SAS with national airlines will have any impact on where aircrafts are registered, but I haven't seen anything indicating that so far.


Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!
