SAS mcommunicatio director Kenneth Vikse says it is an "interesting" thought to invest in high speed trains. And that has been examples of airflight companies investing in similar activities in other parts of Europe.

The specific project is a high speed train in Norway. Can they also be investor in planned high speed trains in Sweden?

perhaps  

But the high speed trains Stockholm - Guthenburg, Stockholm - malmö - kopenhagen will have a big effect on the Swedish market. Considering the open up of the train market in Sweden is this something they have in mind?

Scandinavia's sparse population, remoteness from the rest of Europe (and Norway's tricky topagraphy) makes high speed lines very hard to justify economically, and with SAS's finances, they'll be the last to cough up the money!


it's the bus to stansted (now renamed national express a4 to ruin my username)

This what I was thinking when I read this. I cannot envisage for example TGV style rail infrastructure as being compatible with the topography in Norway in particular.
