SAS’s first Airbus A321 Long Range will enter service on 27th March, 2022. The A321LR is part of SAS’s ongoing fleet renewal programme, which will replace aircraft with more fuel-efficient models. The long range of the aircraft gives SAS the opportunity to fill a smaller aircraft on new routes, rather than fly empty seats on a widebody, and gives more flexibility to adjust to changes in the demand for new routes and destinations.
Let’s take a look inside the three-class cabins…
The SAS A321LR has 22 business-class seats, with fully flat beds
SAS’s 157-seat A321LR also has 12 Plus and 123 Go seats. Different mood lighting scenarios have been created for the cabins
Every seat in the SAS A321LR is equipped with seatback IFE screens, PC-power and/or high-power USB, and access to inflight wi-fi
SAS’s new A321LR completed its first flight on 20th December 2021, flying between Copenhagen and Oslo. The aircraft will officially enter service on 27th March, 2022 and is planned to operate on routes from Copenhagen to Washington, Boston and New York
