SAS found guilty in court
SAS Norge has been instructed to pay NOK 132 M in compensation to Norwegian in a civil suit at Asker and Bærum District Court.
”At the present time, we are focusing all our energy on handling the consequences of the Avinor strike, and we will review the terms of the judgment when Norwegian aviation has returned to normal. But it is highly probable that we will appeal this judgment,” says Ola Strand, President of SAS Norge.
The civil suit brought by Norwegian resulted from unlawful insight into the Amadeus system several years ago. SAS has apologized for the inconvenience cause to Norwegian in relation to the matter, but rejected the claim made in court that this resulted in financial losses.
”Norwegian gave us its access to Amadeus, but the Supreme Court has established that we had no reason to use this access as we did. We admit that we made an error and strongly regret this. However, we naturally never did anything to damage Norwegian and, in our opinion, nor did we cause Norwegian to suffer any loss,” says Strand.
