Many travellers with SAS (Scandinavian Airlines Systems) were not able to board their planes during Wednesday. Forty planes and around 3000 travellers in Sweden were affected. In Denmark it was more than hundred planes and 6000 travellers.
The reason is that two aircrafts of the model Dash 8-400 have been involved in serious incidents only during the last days. In Danish city of Aalborg a plane had to do an emergency landing when the undercarriage broke. Almost exactly the same thing happened two days ago in Vilnius, Lithuania. No one was physically injured but all the planes of the same model from the Canadian manufacturer Bombardier have been called in for inspection.
Travellers may get their money back or be rebooked to other flights or even busses and trains. SAS has at the moment no information about when they believe the planes can be back in traffic.
