About Braathens Asa

SAS, the first airline to operate a trans-polar route, was formed when Norway's Det Norske Luftfartselskap (DNL), Denmark's Det Danske Luftfartselskab (DDL) and Sweden's Swedish Intercontinental Air Traffic (SILA) combined in 1946. SAS, headquartered in Stockholm, provides service throughout Europe, to North America and Asia from its hubs in Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm. SAS is rolling out the SAS Smart Pass to its EuroBonus Gold members with home addresses in Scandinavia. SAS Smart Pass is a sticker that can transmit a passenger's flight information to readers located at check-in kiosks, security checkpoints, lounges and gates, allowing for a more time efficient and easier travel experience.
