SAS is the leading Nordic airline

SAS was formed in 1946 out of the Danish parent company Det Danske Luftfartselskab A/S (DDL), the Norwegian parent company Det Norske Luftfartselskap A/S (DNL), and the Swedish enterprise Svensk Interkontinetal Lufttrafik AB (SILA). Today, it is the leading air transport company among the Nordic countries, with a generated turnover of roughly four billion euros as of 2018, followed by Norwegian Air Shuttle and Finnair.
