Can someone clarify SAS's fleet plans?
They seem to be replacing all their current generation short haul aircraft (a319, a320, 736, 73G, 738) with the a320neo? Is there room for a potential a220 order?
Then there was a quote that seems to indicate that they intend to replace all their current longhaul (a330 & a340) with the a359... With only half of that current generation accounted for with replacement orders is it possible for the a35K or the a330neo on the cards?
Current fleet plans are:
Regional wet-lease: ATR & CRJ900/1000
Short haul: replace 737’s with A320’s. This includes keeping the current A320CEO (319/320/321’s)
Long haul: replace A340’s with A350’s on a 1:1. Replace the oldest A340 (LN-RKP ex Chile) with a A330-300 Enhanced.
Introduce 3 A321LR in the summer of 2020.
I think there is a potential for the A220-100/300, probably operated by wet-lease partner (as the ATR and CRJ’s).
