SAS has secured a contract to provide domestic travel for Swedish government employees. The contract applies to all government agencies, departments, institutes of higher education and universities. For SAS, the agreement is valued at SEK 250 M, with a potential for twice this amount.

SAS secured the contract with the government for all Swedish domestic routes operated by the carrier, from Kiruna in the north to Malmö in the south.

"SAS has the highest number of destinations and departures. Given that we are one of the most punctual airlines in Europe, much valuable time can be saved for government employees," said Peter Viinapuu, COO of SAS in Sweden.

The agreement is valid from October 1, 2009 to September 30, 2010, with the option of a one-year extension. The Swedish government is the single largest and most important customer for SAS in Sweden.

Government employees mostly travel on the routes between Stockholm and Luleĺ, Malmö and Ronneby.
