SAS and Worldspan today announce that the parties have reached an
agreement that SAS will distribute its full content to Worldspan's
Global Distribution System (GDS). The agreement is a result of several
months' negotiations and allows SAS to obtain lower distribution costs.

"SAS wish to give the market full access to our fares and products
through the Worldspan GDS, but while doing so we also need to reduce our
distribution costs to a competitive level," says Robin Kamark, SVP
Airline Commercial in SAS. " Worldspan is a valued partner, and we are
pleased to have met this agreement with them; it is a step in the right
direction ," he adds.

"Worldspan is committed to providing competitive airline content to
travel agents all over the world," said Kevin Ficco, Worldspan vice
president - Airline Distribution and Business Development. "Full content
parity with SAS web sites and the carriers' own reservations and ticket
agents ensures that Worldspan customers have access to the best SAS has
to offer."

As of October 1st, 2005 SAS altered its full content strategy across the
board in order to introduce change in the business model.
