Why Does SAS Always Change The Reg's?

It seems to me as if SAS would change the registrations around on their planes every once in a while. For example the first A343 was delivered as SE-REA and now flies with the reg. LN-RKF...
Do they want to make sure that every plane was registered in all of the 3 countries where they operate from?

Correct me if wrong, but I have understood there to be tax benifits to doing this. If SAS uses the common practice of incorporating the Fleet/Ship Ident as part of the registration I would think this would also cause problems with recordkeeping.

I believe the reason is that Nato and Denmark are both NATO members and Sweden isn't. The NATO members have to have aircraft from the national airline registered in the own country for moving people in case of a conflict.

It's $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Norway = lower tax = less costs. It has been discussed at this forum once before.

This is allso the case in Sweden, SAS's swedish reg aircraft is incoporated into a "Krigsföretag", or a wartime
airline. Same mission as in Norway and Denmark,so as Lj said it's all about money!

Plain and simple!  Smile

I think it's because the airline is jointly-held by the 3 participating states. I have read that they need to maintain the balance and as older types get retired so there has to be a 're-shuffle' amongst the country of registration to maintain each country's holding. They tend to re-register batches of types rather than individually each time they need to.

For example many of the DC-9 went to SE reg's a couple of years back because the replacement a/c (737) were also registered in SE blocks.

Jan Morgen, I don't know the exact details but sometimes the tax benefits are bigger when you "export" the ship or airplane from one country to another than from another.

The reason that SAS first A340 was re-registered LN-RKF is simply taxes. When SAS took delivery of the A340 it was cheapest to register in Sweden, but Norway have since changed their taxes which make it cheaper to register in Norway.
It is not because Denmark and Norway are NATO countries and not because 2/7 should be registered each in Norway and Denmark and 3/7 in Sweden, that was left some years ago.
