The first of three new A321LRs, a narrow-bodied aircraft suited for longer distances.
SAS will take delivery of its first first of three new A321LRs on September 18, 2020.
The airline said to debut this new narrow-body aircraft on a transatlantic route between Copenhagen (Denmark) and Boston(U.S.A), sale of tickets will start on November 20, 2019.
The aircraft has 22 Business, 12 Plus and 123 Go, meaning a total of 157 seats in a single aisle aircraft.
“This is an entirely new aircraft type for SAS, which is incredibly well suited to the Scandinavian market and emerging travel patterns to and from the region. It gives SAS an opportunity to offer travelers more intercontinental routes, fewer stopovers and shorter travel times to and from Scandinavia. The new aircraft is equipped with a service concept at par with the rest of SAS’ long-haul fleet, offering passengers all the benefits, level of comfort and choices of our traveling classes,” says Karl Sandlund, EVP & Chief Commercial Officer.
The A321LR is part of the latest generation of Airbus aircraft and is expected to reduce climate-impacting emissions by around the same amount as when SAS introduced the A320neo,
