Scandinavia’s leading airline, SAS AB, has consistently updated its stakeholders about its financial status and operations. The airline has made updates public as part of the company’s commitment to transparency and its ongoing Chapter 11 process in the US.

From November 1, 2022, to August 31, 2023, SAS and its subsidiaries undergoing the voluntary Chapter 11 process will soon submit their monthly operating reports to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. It’s standard procedure for companies under this process to present reports containing a wealth of financial data, including:
- Cash position
- Assets and liabilities
- Revenue figures
- Profit and loss analytics
