Scandinavian airline SAS said on Sunday it had cancelled 57 flights because its fleet of Q400 turboprops was grounded following the crash-landing of one of the aircraft in Copenhagen.
The landing gear of an SAS Q400 collapsed on landing at Copenhagen’s Kastrup airport on Saturday, but no one was seriously injured.
SAS said in a statement it had cancelled 49 flights on Sunday and eight flights on Monday.
Scandinavian aviation authorities on Saturday issued a new flight ban on all SAS’s Q400 turboprops shortly after the incident.
