SAS to Replace A340 with A330-300

SAS has signed an order for one additional Airbus A330-300 with delivery scheduled for spring 2019. The aircraft will replace an Airbus A340.

SASs long haul fleet consists of 16 Airbus A330/A340, of which one Airbus A340 mostly has functioned as a reserve aircraft.

With the investment in one new Airbus A330E, SAS will improve its customer offering as SASs entire long haul fleet will have an identical cabin interior.

 In addition, the Airbus A330E has approximately 15-20% lower jet fuel consumption per seat kilometer compared to the Airbus A340 that will be replaced.

The list price of one A330E aircraft, including engines, ordered from Airbus amounts to US$ 264 million at list prices. The new Airbus A330E will be financed through a sale/leaseback.

In accordance with the other A330E, SAS has chosen Rolls-Royce Trent 772B engines to power the aircraft.
