Scandinavian Airlines

The conglomerate was established in 1951 as a merger between the 3 Scandinavian flag carriers Det Danske Luftfartselskab (DDL), Det Norske Luftfartselskap (DNL), and Aerotransport (ABA), after since 1946 the trio had been cooperating on international routes. Until 2001, the 3 national companies owned each a fixed share of SAS Group, after which the shares of the three were merged. SAS Group previously owned Braathens and Rezidor Hotel Group and also had minority ownership of airBaltic, bmi, Lan Airlines and Thai Airways International. Scandinavian Airlines was a founder of Amadeus Computerised Reservation System and Star Alliance, where a number of group's airlines are members. The frequent flyer program of Scandinavian Airlines is called EuroBonus.

The exhibits at SAS Museum at Oslo's Gardermoen Airport, represent an important fraction of Scandinavian civil aviation history. The collections of the museum cover SAS (Scandinavian Airlines System) and its parent companies.
