SAS farewells local office

SCANDINAVIAN Airlines had shut down its Australasian operations after more then 34 years, bidding farewell to long-time staffers Irmgard Goetjes and Marianne Nalletamby, who had both been with the airline for over 22 years.

The carrier had been locally represented by the Walshe Group for eight years, but prior to that had operated its own sales organisation in Australia since 1984.

Goetjes became the local GM of SAS prior to Walshe taking over and Nalletamby moved to the Walshe Group along with Goetjes, continuing her role as customer service agent.
