Scandinavian Airlines, usually known as SAS, is the flag carrier of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, which together form Scandinavia. SAS is an abbreviation of the company's full name, Scandinavian Airlines System or legally Scandinavian Airlines System Denmark-Norway-Sweden. The airline was founded in 1946 as a consortium to pool the transatlantic operations of Swedish airline Svensk Interkontinental Lufttrafik, Norway's Det Norske Luftfartselskap and Det Danske Luftfartselskab of Denmark. SAS entered the jet age in 1959 when the Sud Aviation Caravelle entered service, with the Douglas DC-8 then joining the fleet the next year. In 1967, SAS put its first McDonnell Douglas DC-9 into service.
