Scandinavian carrier SAS has continued its fleet replacement programme with an order for 30 Airbus A320neos announced at the Paris air show today, with the option for a further 11 aircraft.
The Neos will be powered by CFM's Leap-X1A engines. The Star Alliance carrier is already a CFM customer.
SAS is in the process of harmonising its fleet and is replacing its Copenhagen-based Boeing MD-80s with leased Airbus A320s. These in turn will be replaced by the A320neos from the second half of 2016. Final delivery will be in 2019.
The deal is worth SKr18 billion ($2.8 billion) at list prices.
