Danish newspaper Berlingske has suggested that Scandinavian airline SAS may be considering setting up a base in Ireland to reduce costs aping the model adopted by Norwegian. Like its rival, by securing an Irish operating license, the airline could register aircraft there and employ staff on different terms. The paper also suggested that the UK could be the location for its international base. Although SAS has not confirmed the report, it has stated that it is considering an overhaul of its way of operating, including establishing bases outside of Scandinavia in an effort to cut costs further.
