SAS Scandinavian Airlines has exercised options with Boeing for two Next-Generation 737-800 jetliners. The airplanes will strengthen the 737 fleet of SAS Scandinavian Airlines to support growth on domestic and intra-Europe routes. The airline will equip the airplanes with fuel-saving Blended Winglets.

"SAS has ambitious targets to strengthen its position on the Northern European market. With these additional airplanes we can increase frequencies and add routes to our network, thereby serving our customers even better," said Mats Jansson, president and CEO of SAS Group. "We have a long history of being environmentally conscious, so we're delighted with the significant emission-reducing improvements of the 737 family."

"The Next-Generation 737 has environmentally progressive features such as fuel-saving Blended Winglets and lighter-weight carbon brakes," said Marlin Dailey, vice president Sales, Europe, Russia & Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. The lighter-weight carbon brakes are available on all Next-Generation 737 models from 2008 as a no-charge optional feature.

The two Boeing 737-800s will be delivered in 2009.
