In the next eight months, SAS will add four A330E planes to its fleet. The first has just arrived.

Tore Viking is named after the 11th century viking chief Tore Tordsson. The new Airbus will primarily service the new SAS route between Stockholm, Sweden and Hong Kong, China, which launched on September 10.

The SAS Environmental Program

SAS’s overall goal is a 20% reduction in emissions by 2015. Fleet renewal is an important part of that strategy.
To date, SAS has taken delivery of 27 state-of-the-art Airbus A320 and Boeing 737-700/800 planes, which have replaced older models such as the MD-80. Fuel consumption and associated emissions are in line with SAS’s target.
The varied fleet of Boeing 737s and A320s allows SAS to adjust capacity to demand and ensures emissions are kept to a minimum. SAS also gives passengers and cargo customers the opportunity to offset their carbon emissions. The emissions calculator can be found at sasgroup.net/miljo, alongside the 2014 Sustainability Report.
SAS has reduced carbon emissions by some 15% over the past eight years and is one of only a few airlines that is ISO 14001 certified – proof that it takes its environmental responsibilities seriously.
