SAS Orders 35 Airbus A320neo Aircraft

SAS has signed a firm order for 35 Airbus A320neo aircraft.

 SAS will also lease 15 additional A320neos from leasing companies.

The new A320neos will join the airline’s existing Airbus fleet of 56 aircraft (eight A340s, eight A330s and 40 A320 Family aircraft).

“Just over one year ago, we started to phase into service brand new Airbus A320neos, and since then we have received a very positive response from our customers,” said Rickard Gustafson, President and CEO of SAS. “I’m therefore delighted that, through this order, we can continue improving and investing in our customer offering, and thereby SAS’s future. We are also creating a single-type and more efficient fleet for the first time. Ordering 50 Airbus A320neos gives us access to the market’s most efficient aircraft thereby enabling us to further improve our operational efficiency and to continue to reduce our climate-impacting emissions.”

SAS has not yet revealed its engine selection for the new aircraft.

Eric Schulz, Chief Commercial Officer, Airbus Commercial Aircraft, said, “We are proud with this repeat commitment by SAS. The A320neo will complement SAS’s existing Airbus fleet, with unbeatable fuel efficiency, the lowest operating costs and environmental footprint. It is the perfect choice for SAS, for replacing its older generation aircraft. This means more of SAS’s passengers will keep enjoying the best comfort in the skies.”
