SAS Plans to Deploy First Q400 Aircraft

SAS continues to struggle with resuming Q400 service nearly three weeks after grounding the aircraft owing to two gear collapses on landing. However, it plans to re-deploy the first Q400 aircraft beginning on Thursday, October 4, with the remaining Q400 aircraft returning to operation during the following days. Deployment of the Q400 will thus occur successively, resulting in further cancellations during the week. The aircraft are undergoing a number of extra inspections that SAS has chosen to perform in addition to the replacements and inspections prescribed by the authorities and manufacturer. The first aircraft are ready for test-flights that will take place in the next few days. Related Story
