SAS Scandinavian to consider obtaining A321LR along with the A320neo


Stockholm - The SAS Scandinavian considers including A321LR as part of its fleet renewal efforts.

This year in April, SAS ordered 35 A320neo. From a previous order for 30 aircraft of this type, the airline has already received 19 copies. Another 15 A320neo will be added to the fleet through lessors. Overall, the airline wants to renew its fleet with 80 A320neo by 2023.

But SAS chief executive officer Rickard Gustafson said during the third-quarter briefing that the carrier was evaluating the possibility of switching to the A321LR aswell.

I believe the A321LR could be an attractive aircraft that can unlock new markets in the long-haul space. That’s something we’re looking into,
said, Mr. Gustafson.

Gustafson did not clear up whether the SAS would convert an existing order or acquire the A321LR through lessors.
