SAS orders 50 A320neos to create a single type fleet

    SAS placed (10-Apr-2018) an order for 50 A320neo aircraft to create a single type fleet by 2023. The first 15 A320neos, with deliveries from the spring of 2019 through 2021, have been secured through declarations of intent with lessors. The remaining 35 aircraft are planned to be delivered directly by Airbus up to 2023. The aircraft order also includes options for an additional five A320neos. All of the aircraft will be equipped with SAS‘s high speed WiFi and have SAS’s appreciated new cabin interiors. SAS confirmed plans to begin phasing out its Boeing737 and the existing A320 aircraft in line with the deliveries of the new A320neos. SAS will further simplify its aircraft fleet into a single type fleet consisting of Airbus aircraft on both short, medium and long haul routes. [more – original PR]
