SAS and Apollo Sign Charter Contract for SEK 1.1 Billion

SAS has extended its charter services contract with the Apollo Travel Group in a deal worth SEK 1.1 Billion to the airline.

The airline and the Group have had an ongoing partnership lasting more than 15 years. This renewed contract covers the summer and winter seasons for 2016-2017.

SAS will provide air services to Apollo’s customers from 17 locations in Sweden, Denmark and Norway to 30 European destinations.

SAS is now Apollo’s main external air services partner, apart from the Group’s own airline: Novair.

“We feel confident in SAS as a supplier for our customers and we have been very happy with their service over the years that we have been working together,” says Leif Vase Larsen, CEO of Apollo Travel Group. “SAS’s considerable flexibility is one of the things we value most.”

“Obviously it’s a fantastic feeling that Apollo has once again chosen SAS to be its partner,” says Annelie Nässén, VP Global Agent Sales, SAS. “SAS recently won several awards at the industry’s Grand Travel Awards, including Best European airline, and with Apollo’s continued confidence in us, we see this as proof that our efforts are paying off. We look forward to continuing to welcome Apollo’s customers on board our aircraft.”
