After the airline SAS reported over one billion kronor in losses for the second quarter of 2014 the management stated that at least 300 employees will be dismissed. The measures are expected to have an impact of one billion kronor in the financial year of 2014/2015. Employees in administration, sales, and support will be most affected by the job losses. As part of cost cutting measures in 2012, the company had reduced wages. This won’t be the case this time and SAS won’t be utilising staffing agencies to any greater extent, which has been the general trend among the airline’s competitors.
