At the same time, SAS announced that the Danish Pilot Union members would carry through a ballot amongst its members in relation to the collective agreement.
Danish Pilot Union has now completed the ballot amongst its members and informed SAS that the agreement has been approved.
The new revolving credit facility of SEK 3.5 billion is therefore now only subject to parliamentary approval where required. These propositions in relation to the governments participation in the revolving credit facility will be presented to the parliaments in Sweden and Norway on 12 December 2012. The Danish Finance Committee is expected to make a decision in relation to this on 23 November 2012.
