The airline has a total of eight A350-900 aircraft on order and operates an Airbus fleet of 68 aircraft (51 A320 Family, 17 A330 and A340 Family aircraft). In the coming years, as part of an extensive fleet modernisation, SAS will take delivery of 54 additional A320neo Family aircraft and the remaining seven A350-900s through direct purchase and lease contracts.
 
SAS’s A350-900 features a modern and highly comfortable three-class cabin layout with 300 seats: 40 'SAS Business' class, 32 'SAS Plus' class and 228 'SAS Go' class seats. On 28th January 2020, the airline will start to operate the new aircraft on its Copenhagen-Chicago long-haul route, followed by other international destinations including North America and Asia.
 
The A350 XWB features the latest aerodynamic design, a carbon fibre fuselage and wings, plus new fuel-efficient Rolls-Royce engines.
 
The incoming A350s will seamlessly integrate into SAS’s current Airbus fleet today in service at the airline.

At the end of October 2019, the A350 XWB Family had received 913 firm orders from 50 customers worldwide.
