Brazil and in Japan. We will revert to them at the end of this page.

In Brazil import of foreign equipment,
including SAS's SASALFA Terminals, was forbidden. VARIG Airline had their
own "TEVAR" terminals made out of scrapped aircraft
parts. In excellent cooperation with SAS DATA specialists, VARIG programmers (Zuwick
and Otto Fertsch in Porto Allegre) developed TEVAR Terminals, able to
communicate using the SASALFA protocol. These terminals were used in SAS
offices in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and at the airports respectively. Where
are they now?
In Japan at Narita Airport,
SAS passengers were handled by All Nippon Air (ANA) employees.
Passenger handling was performed manually and based on passenger lists
transmitted from Copenhagen Data Centre to Narita Airport every day. All Nippon Air
programmers, in cooperation with specialists from SAS Data, developed software
enabling the ANA terminals to perform Check-In in the SAS Systems in Copenhagen
via ANA systems (Host-toHost). Where are these terminals now?
If you know anything indicating where these
missing units are now, please contact us!
