Is SAS aiming for Guinness World Records?

The Scandinavian airline has announced yet another world record.

Scandinavian SAS world's most punctual airline
SAS to host world's first mile-high gay wedding

Is the Scandinavian airline SAS aiming for their own section in the Guinness Book of Records? Looking at its official statements released the last few weeks one might suspect they actually are.

The airline recently proudly announced it had emerged as the world’s most punctual major airline as more than 90 percent of its flights arrive on time, way ahead of its competitors.

Just a few days earlier the company said it plans to host the first-ever in-flight gay wedding – and is searching for a suitable couple to walk down the airplane aisle.

So it didn’t came as big surprise Thursday when SAS announced yet another world record. This time the airline said it was the first and only airline ever to have landed two very special environmental certification: ISO 14001 and EMAS certification from Bureau Veritas.

"The SAS Group now holds two internationally recognized environmental certificates, covering all aspects of the SAS Group's business - everything from flight operations to administration. That makes us unique in the world," says Lars Andersen Resare, the SAS Group's Environmental Director.

In the past SAS, half-owned by Sweden, Norway and Denmark, has passed a number of fascinating milestones that have transformed the entire aviation industry.

• In 1952 SAS was the first airline to introduce Tourist Class, a discounted ticket with certain conditions. The entire airline industry later followed suit.
• In 1957 SAS was the first to offer round the world service over the North Pole.
• In 1965 SAS was first to introduce an electronic reservation system.

I wonder what world record the Scandinavian airline will break next week?
