SAS Group: “Ahead of the second quarter, the booking status is relatively stable, but there is a higher degree of uncertainty regarding global economic trends. Jet fuel prices and additional capacity in the market remain a challenge. Our assessment made in conjunction with the report for the first quarter of 2011 stands firm – provided that no unexpected events occur, the conditions remain for the SAS Group to achieve positive income before tax for full-year 2011. In addition, the financial risk exposure remains in Spanair,” Source: Company statement, 17-Aug-2011.
