Bankruptcy risk of SAS has in recent weeks been so imminent that the Norwegian government implements contingency plans to maintain ambulance transport in Norway.
n abrupt halt in flights could put in danger life and health in rural areas, where the transportation is done with SAS subsidiary Widerøe.
According to Norwegian daily VG’s report, the government therefore plans to put up a big emergency information for travelers around the world, if the company is to go bankrupt and the planes stop.
Insurance companies also prepares for a possible bankruptcy.
Europiske Insurance Company information director, Emma Elisabeth Wennesland says the state owners would take some time before SAS’s flights stop and that would give them time to find alternative transport for insurance cases.
