STOCKHOLM (AP) -- Scandinavian airline group SAS says its second-quarter net loss narrowed to 388 million kronor ($59 million) from 429 million kronor a year earlier as a result of cost cuts.
Revenue in the February-April period fell to 9.9 billion kronor from 10.1 billion.
Facing stiff competition from budget airlines and high expenses, SAS AB in November embarked on a wide restructuring plan and announced 800 job cuts aimed at saving 3 billion kronor annually.
CEO Rickard Gustafson said Wednesday SAS's "earnings level is not yet satisfactory" but said the restructuring efforts have been successful in lowering the company's costs.
