SAS and Apollo agree €119 million contract

Deal covers summer and winter season 2016-17
SAS has extended its contract with tour operator Apollo for charter flights within Europe. The contract is worth SEK 1.1 billion (€119 million) and covers the summer and winter season 2016-17.
The partnership means that SAS will take care of Apollo’s customers from 17 locations in Sweden, Denmark and Norway to travel to 30 destinations in Europe.
“After a long and steadfast partnership lasting more than 15 years, Apollo has once again chosen SAS as its primary partner for the majority of its charter flights from Scandinavia during the summer and winter season,” the airline said in a press release.
Annelie Nässén, SAS VP Global Agent Sales, added: “With Apollo’s continued confidence in us, we see this as proof that our efforts are paying off. We look forward to continuing to welcome Apollo’s customers on board our aircraft.”
SAS is Apollo’s main external partner, apart from Novair, which is their own airline. The contract between SAS and Apollo covers flights from three locations in Sweden, three in Denmark and 11 in Norway, to 30 destinations in Europe.
