SAS Selects A350s
The Scandinavian carrier has signed a MoU for eight A350 XWB’s and four A330’s, as part of its strategy to modernise its long haul fleet with more efficient aircraft.
The agreement was signed in Oslo earlier this week and is valued at US$3.3 Billion.
The airline plans to use the aircraft to replace its older A340’s and A330’s as their leases expire and is looking to firm up the order in the next couple months. SAS currently operates a fleet of 19 A320’s, four A330’s and seven A340’s.
The A330’s will be delivered in 2015 and the A350’s in 2018.
