The President and CEO of SAS Scandinavian Airlines, Rickard Gustafson, has decided to leave SAS after ten-years. He will leave the company, at the latest, by July 1, 2021.

“After ten intense and stimulating years, the time has come for me to pass on the baton to the next CEO of SAS during the first half of 2021,” Gustafson commented. “I have accepted an opportunity to join one of Sweden’s largest industrial groups. SAS has a strong position in the Scandinavian market and is well positioned to lead the aviation industry toward a more sustainable future once the pandemic is under control. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all esteemed colleagues, customers, and other stakeholders in SAS for their engagement, loyalty, and support over the years. SAS is a fantastic organization with extraordinary people that will ensure that SAS remains an important and integrated part of the Scandinavian infrastructure.”

SAS’ board has immediately started the process of appointing a new President and CEO.
