SAS continues to modernize and upgrade the aircraft fleet in order to invest in the future. A simplified and renewed fleet tailored to large and small traffic flows will strengthen SAS competitiveness.
By aligning the fleet with one aircraft type per base SAS is lowering its costs and increasing punctuality and regularity. SAS is also modernizing the long haul fleet with new aircraft. An order of 30 Airbus A320 NEOs, four Airbus A330 Enhanced and eight Airbus A350s has been placed. Combined with upgrades of the cabin interiors this will further modernize the aircraft fleet for the future.
The first aircraft with the entirely new cabin interior was delivered in February 2015. SAS’s four Airbus 330-300 are now all upgrated with new cabin interiors. Delivery of upgraded Airbus 340-300 are delivered at a rate of one per month.
The last Airbus A330 Enhanhed was delivered in April 2016.
