Sandinavian Airlines’ (SAS) first Airbus A350-900, SE-RSA (c/n 358) ‘Ingegerd Viking’, was accepted by the carrier on November 29, 2019. Just over a week later, the big reveal occurred at Copenhagen/Kastrup’s iconic Vilhelm Lauritzen-designed terminal and it was certainly a sight to behold. The state-of-the-art widebody began operations from January 28 and will serve seven routes during its first year from Kastrup, with the maiden trips to Chicago/O’Hare. Further destinations include New York/Newark, Hong Kong, San Francisco and Tokyo/Narita, the last of these transferring to Haneda from March 29.
