We’re celebrating SAS’s 70th anniversary with a retro exhibition

2016-09-05, kl. 13:36

Today we celebrate SAS’s 70th anniversary by inaugurating an exhibition of the airline’s journey through time, from 1946 to today. On display in the spectacular showcase are SAS uniforms through the years along with menus, tickets, timetables and other historical rarities.

The driving force behind the exhibition is Reidun Boethius, who began her lifetime career at SAS as a flight attendant in 1956.  Over the years, she has collected all the uniforms in the exhibition as well as a variety of desirable collector’s items. Ms Boethius has also held fashion shows around the world with her uniforms, which were designed by fashion houses such as Dior and Calvin Klein.

“The uniform serves as SAS’s face to the world and is an important part of the airline’s history. It has made it easy for passengers to recognise SAS employees both on the ground and in the air. So I am pleased and grateful to be able to show some of the uniforms in my collection here at Stockholm Arlanda,” says Ms Boethius.

“SAS has shrunk distances in Sweden and between Scandinavia and the world. As a result, over the past 70 years, they have had an enormous importance for access to Sweden and as partner of the airport. We hope that our passengers will take the time and visit the exhibition to see the unique collection we now have the opportunity to display at Stockholm Arlanda,” says Kjell-Åke Westin, airport director at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.

The exhibition is being inaugurated today by Stockholm Arlanda’s airport director, Kjell-Åke Westin, and the well-known SAS personality Reidun Boethius.

It will be on display September 6-25 in the area for Gates F26-F39 in Terminal 5.
