SAS becomes first European carrier to debut A330-300 Enhanced

Scandinavian Airlines or SAS has now become the first carrier in Europe to debut its new long-haul Airbus A330-300 Enhanced aircraft. The airline’s new aircraft is being used for conducting flights to Chicago from Copenhagen.

The new Airbus A330-300 Enhanced aircraft will initially be deployed to operate flights between Chicago and Copenhagen for a month. The aircraft will be later on used to operate flights from Stockholm to Hong Kong and Chicago as well.

A spokesperson of SAS said that the airline is all set to acquire three new Airbus A330-300 Enhanced aircrafts over the next half year. The airline will be taking the delivery of one aircraft later this October, while two more similar aircrafts would be acquired in early 2016. The spokesperson said that the airline will be acquiring eight more Airbus A350-300 Enhanced aircrafts starting from 2018 onwards.

Richard Gustafson, President and CEO of SAS, said, “it is a proud moment for SAS to welcome its passengers on board its new Airbus A330-300 Enhanced aircraft. The company has been making significant investments in its fleet and also introducing new routes to the United States, Asia and Scandinavia. The new aircraft will help the airline reduce fuel emissions and save on fuel costs.”

Currently, SAS is operating flights to many international destinations. The long-haul routes being presently served by the airline include Hong Kong, Tokyo, Shanghai, Beijing, Houston, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington DC. The airline had earlier in August this year announced that it would be launching daily flights to Los Angeles from Stockholm starting from March 14, 2016. The airline will also be launching thrice-weekly flights on Oslo-Miami and Copenhagen-Miami routes from autumn 2016.
