SAS has selected the A330-300 to further standardise its long-haul fleet.



One new A330-300 equipped with Rolls-Royce Trent 772B engines will join the Scandinavian carrier’s network in the second Quarter 2019.

SAS has been an Airbus customer since 1980 with an Airbus fleet of 57 aircraft (eight A340s, eight A330s and 41 A320 Family aircraft) to date.
 
“We are thankful that SAS has selected the Airbus Family for the second time this week. This further commitment by SAS to the A330 demonstrates the unmatched operating economics and operational versatility of this aircraft,” said Eric Schulz, Airbus Chief Commercial Officer. “We are delighted to be continuing our long-standing partnership with SAS.”
 
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.
