The Danish government is in dialogue with the Swedish state to ensure a solution for the pressed carrier SAS, which in large part is owned by Denmark and Sweden.
It writes the finance minister, Nicolai Wammen (S) in a short comment.
What does he do on the day, where SAS has accounted for its second quarter - the three months that ended with april. The company had a deficit of 2.5 billion Danish kroner in the period.
SAS is central to Denmark's availability and Danish jobs, businesses and the economy in general.
- The Danish state is in close dialogue with, among others, the Swedish state, as well as SAS' leadership to find a long-term solution for the company, which among other things will require the sharing of responsibility with other investors in the SAS, writes Nicolai Wammen (S).
The last phrase will get luftfartsanalytiker at Sydbank Jacob Pedersen to lift the eyebrows. He sees an indication that Denmark will not stand alone when it comes to keep SAS flying also after the crisis.
- I'm reading it clear, that the Danish state will not be the only one who saves the SAS. There are very many shareholders in SAS today, and their values are disappeared.
- It must be them there in the first place have to pay. So there is the possibility, to leasing companies and bondholders, who also has claims, must take the loss, within Denmark goes into a rescue, he says.
so Far, Denmark and Sweden, who own, respectively, 15 and 14 percent of SAS, held, when it came to the bailouts for the SAS.
And Jacob Pedersen believes not that the SAS will be allowed to go bankrupt.
- You would hear the noise of that I fell down from the chair, in the whole of Denmark, if the SAS disappears.
- But the coffers are empty, and there be billions in the box, if they are to survive. And them, Denmark will probably not come up with all together, says Jacob Pedersen.
