Radison Hotel/SAS Connection

Fri Nov 11, 2005 6:14 am

I was recently watching CNN and was watching the reports on the bombing in Jordan, and it showed the front of the hotel Radison, and next to the sign was the SAS/SK logo, blue with white "SAS". My question is re both companies owned by th same people? Does SK even fly to Amman?

I saw that too, and I was wondering the same thing. CNN said that the hotels were all American, so I was under the impression that Radisson was American owned. But that makes since that SAS Group owns the Radisson.
