COMMENTS BY THE PRESIDENT AND CEO OF SAS:
The quarterly earnings tracked our expectations, despite considerable negative currency effects. For the first six months, the improvement was SEK 0.3 billion before tax and nonrecurring items. During the quarter, we placed an order for 50 new Airbus A320neo aircraft, which will play a decisive role in strengthening our competitiveness going forward. The order means that, for the first time in the modern age, SAS will be able to create a single-type fleet consisting of the most efficient aircraft in the market, in terms of both cost and environmental performance.
