Scandinavian Airline, SAS selected an Airbus A330-300E to add its long-haul fleet, days after ordering 50 A320 jets.
One new A330-300 powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 772B engines will join the Scandinavian carrier’s network in the second Quarter 2019. SAS has an Airbus fleet of 57 aircraft (eight A340s, eight A330s and 41 A320 Family aircraft) to date.
The carrier has eight A340-300s and would replace an A340 with the new A330-300 to cut fuel consumption and to keep consistent cabin interior for the A330 fleet.
To date the A330 Family has attracted over 1,700 orders, making it the world’s best-selling wide-body aircraft in its category. More than 1,350 A330 Family aircraft are currently flying today with more than 110 operators worldwide.
