SAS Scandinavian Airlines has terminated the contract to allow its business passengers and frequent fliers use the Anna Livia lounge and fast track services at Dublin airport.

The airline is cancelling arrangements with third-party operators and concentrating on key routes and as a result cancelled access to airport-managed lounges. EuroBonus members and business class passengers will lose access to 26 lounges and 24 fast-track programmes around Europe.

The carrier said in a statement: “to be able to continue and invest, expand and improve SAS Lounges and fast track offer, SAS will end our collaboration with some of our contracted lounges operated by third-parties. The result will be a continued improvement of SAS’s own offer where it benefits most of our Plus/Business travellers, members and 29 million yearly passengers. We will be investing in new and bigger domestic lounges at Arlanda and Oslo Gardemoen as well as upgrading our international SAS Lounges in New York, Paris and Chicago“.
