Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) has entered into a five-year training services and support agreement with Oxford Aviation Academy (OAA).

The agreement will see OAA provide flight crew and cabin crew training facilities at its Scandinavian Training Centres until 2017.

OAA will be the primary supplier of training to SAS for its Airbus A320, Boeing 737NG, 737CL and MD-80 aircraft, in addition to offering further training capacity on the Bombardier CRJ-900 and A330/A340 types.

Depending on SAS's requirements, training will be provided on both a wet and dry lease basis for the next five years, says OAA.
