It is hard to imagine a workplace more constantly active than an airport. Open around the clock, it is filled with passengers traveling to all corners of the world. The airport staff is there to help our travelers on their journey. At the Airport we have roles working on the "Landside" that means that the work is mainly before the scurity check. Roles on the "Airside" is located after the security check insite the Airport.

Before your bag is loaded on board an aircraft it goes through sorting, which ensures that every bag follows you to your destination. Our team at Oslo Airport shows you what happens behind the scenes, from when you deliver your bag until it is loaded onto the aircraft.
Every year, our dedicated baggage team handles hundreds of thousands pieces of baggage. Get a glimpse into their work and your bag's trip from the check-in counter to the cargo hold onboard.
One of the final steps before take-off is called Push Back. Why, you may ask? Because the aircraft is literally pushed back from the gate, by our teams in the Push Back trucks. Watch the video to get a glimpse into their everyday work.

“Working at SAS makes me extra proud because I am surrounded by top professional and empathetic colleagues all of whom contribute to making a difference for our customers.”
When you have been at a company for many years, there are many experiences that have meaning, that you think back on and smile, but also some that will never be forgotten. We all remember Tuesday September 11th 2001 which turned the world upside down and not to mention the air traffic and security at airports around the world. SAS was the first to change their route number for New York from SK911 to SK909. The next few days went by, everyone was working hard to figure out how to handle flights, increased security checks of flights, passengers and their luggage. All employees at the airport worked a lot of over time, everyone wanted to help. It was right at CPH security where they got loads of extra tasks regarding security, they manually examined both the big suitcases and hand luggage. It required many hands and the cooperation between SAS, CPH Airport and the police was completely unique.”

We have a unique bond. There is a huge diversity in both age and personalities among my colleagues, and this is exactly what makes my SAS family absolutely perfect.”
