Scandinavian Airlines orders 30 of the Airbus A320neo

The Toulouse, France-based Airbus has sold 30 of its new A320neo model aircraft to Solna, Sweden-based Scandinavian Airlines (SAS).  These are scheduled for delivery to SAS during the second half of 2016.  SAS also has the option to order 11 more, for delivery during 2019.

Airbus explained in its press release on the SAS purchase, that "[the] A320neo incorporates more efficient engines...which will deliver up to 15 percent in fuel savings."  SAS also estimates that when the A320neo fully replaces the current fleet of A320s (of which SAS flies 12), its carbon emissions per available seat-kilometer will be reduced by 15 percent.

SAS noted that the value of this order is something in the neighborhood of 18 billion SEK (1.96 billion EUR, 2.83 billion USD, 2.67 billion AUD, 3.68 billion NZD, 226.96 billion JPY)
