Scandinavian Airlines selects OAA as primary training supplier until 2017

Oxford Aviation Academy (OAA) has announced a new 5-year training services and support agreement with international carrier Scandinavian Airlines (SAS). This training scheme will provide flight crew and cabin crew training facilities at OAA’s Scandinavian Training Centres and has been tailored to meet the airline’s expanding training requirements up until 2017.

Significantly, OAA will be the primary supplier of training to SAS in support of their A320, B737NG, B737CL and MD80 aircraft types in addition to offering further training capacity on the CRJ 900 and A330/A340. In line with SAS requirements, training will be provided on both a wet and dry lease basis for the next five years.

Commenting on the new agreement, Captain Torben Løvetofte, NPH Crew Training, SAS, stated, “It is with great pleasure that we sign this new contract with OAA. It is testament to the significant effort invested by both organisations in establishing this long term cooperation. SAS has always enjoyed working with OAA and now looks forward to receiving high quality training from OAA in the future.”

Mike Humphreys, OAA’s Managing Director for Type Training added “We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the service, equipment and facilities they require at locations that suit their operational needs. We are therefore delighted that SAS has decided to continue their close partnership with Oxford Aviation Academy. We very much look forward to working with SAS over the coming years and continuing to support their successful growth.”
