The leading Scandinavian airline company SAS Airlines has announced the launch of a partnership deal with Magnus Carlsen. As announced on the airline's website, it will sponsor the Play Magnus Live Challenge. Carlsen himself confirmed the arrangement on Twitter.

The event will take place in New York on 5 May when 20 selected users of the Play Magnus mobile app will be able to meet the world champion and play him. This was first announced in February of last year, and allows anyone who wishes to pit their wits against a program, which plays in the style of Magnus over various years (using actual computer suggestions is forbidden, of course. - CN).

In addition, SAS Airlines will organise a simultaneous display by Carlsen, against selected clients, which will take place later this year in Oslo. 

Moreover, the Scandinavian company plans to include an enhanced version of Play Magnus among its on-board services. This enhanced version will allow premium passengers to play not only "Magnus", but also amongst themselves and even with passengers on other SAS flights, which will help pass the time on longhaul flights.
