✈ | SK*/AY°/DY/FI/WW/KF*/GL/RC/WF | Scandinavian and North Atlantic Carriers

Scandinavian Airlines (SAS)
---------------------------
Founded in 1946 as a consortium of the national airlines of Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
HQ: Arlanda (Stockholm, Sweden).
Main Hub: CPH (One of the most important airports in Europe, situated in Copenhagen, Denmark)
Member and co-founder of Star Alliance (CPH is one of the Star Alliance Hubs!).
SAS is one of the largest airlines in Europe, and the 15th largest in the world.

-----------

SAS Fleet:

Airbus A340-300 (Long range widebody aircraft):

This quad-engine aircraft is one of my all time favourites. I think it have one of the longest ranges of all airplanes (maybe the longest) and are capable of flights between BKK-JFK etc. SAS's A340s only fly from Copenhagen (to Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai etc.) I think. SAS has got 7 A340s in their fleet.

----------

Airbus A330-300 (Medium to long range widebody aircraft):

I've flown (???) with this twinjet aircraft (to BKK, EWR etc.) several times and always find it very nice. Comfortable, low engine sound level and SAS seat arrangements and service (PTV:s etc.) are always classy. This aircraft (which replaced the old 767s) is closely related to A340 and SAS has got 4 of them in their fleet (one with Star Alliance livery!).

----------

Airbus A321-200 (Short to medium range narrowbody airliner):

Stretched version of A319. I've never been on a SAS operated flight with this aircraft, but with other airlines (BA etc.). It is notable that SAS uses more and more Airbus aircraft in their fleet - which I like. SAS has got 8 of these planes in their fleet, and 4 more are ordered (I think).

----------

Boeing 737-600/700/800 (Short to medium range narrowbody aircraft):

Different versions (capacity) of the popular 737 is a large part of the SAS fleet (30 -600 aircraft, 6 -700 aircraft and 13 -800 aircraft). These planes fly domestic flights within Sweden and from CPH/ARN etc. to different airports in Europe.

----------

MD-81/-82/-83/-87 (Short to medium range narrowbody airliner):

This aircraft operated on the same flights as the 737s. SAS has got 14 MD-81s, 27 MD-82s, 0 (!) MD-83s and 15 MD-87s in their fleet. I think SAS is the largest MD-8x operator in the world. I personally think this plane is kind of ugly and I hope SAS will begin to relpace them soon, but they're still medium aged aircrafts (delivered in the middle of the 80s).

----------

MD-90 (Short to medium range narrowbody airliner):

This is a stretched version of the MD-80 series and in SAS configuration they have 147 seats, which is quite much for a narrowbody aircraft. 8 MD-90s are available in the SAS fleet.

----------

de Haviland Q400 (Regional turboprop airliner):

The SAS-fleet of Q400s are operated entirely by SAS Commuter. These aircraft have 72 seats and SAS owns 24 of them. The stage length of these aircraft are about 550 km or less.

----------

Fokker F50 (Turboprop regional aircraft):

This Fokker model is extremely popular and is considered a very good aircraft. They are operated by SAS Commuter and have 46-50 seats. SAS have 6 of them in traffic, and all of them are operated for domestic flights within Norway. Too bad Fokker colapsed in 1996, RIP!

Chibcha2k,

What do you mean by "split operations"?

Some more SAS-pics:

From airliners.net.


SAS don't operate 747s anymore, which is sad. This is the old-old livery.


And the last colour scheme.

Correct, SAS is the "national" airline of Sweden, Denmark and Norway. The HQ is in Stockholm and the Home Airport is in CPH.

_tictac_,

I love those pics.

Where are the first two pictures taken? It looks like that MD-8x is about to smash into the mountain wall, Aeroflot style.

PS. I've seen a picture taken from the artificial island Peberholm in Öresund, where you can see cars going down the tunnel, a tanker ship in the sound, and a SAS-plane landing on CPH. I need to see that pic again! DS.

Finnair flies its first biofuel flight - 541



Now, some of you may be familiar with cars running on biofuel. You know, the fuel made from renewable, organic raw material? Basically, it’s a fuel often associated with recycled cooking oil in restaurants. Well, Finnair is using it to fuel its planes.

That’s right, cooking oil. In partnership with Dutch company SkyNRG, Finnair seeks to use biofuels and other alternative energies as a way to reduce energy emissions. The flight, which took place Wednesday, July 20 from Amsterdam to Helsinki, is one such step the company is making in pursuit of “a sustainable future for aviation through actively developing a sustainable production chain for alternative aviation fuels,” according to a release.

“Biofuel use is still not financially sustainable, because biofuel is more expensive than ordinary aviation fuel and no large-scale production or distribution has yet been established. Finnair, moreover, does not receive any kind of financial support to use biofuel, unlike some other airlines,” says Finnair’s Vice President Sustainable Development Kati Ihamäki.

According to the release, Finnair’s first flights utilize SkyNRG biofuel manufactured from recycled cooking oil, which are mixed half-and-half with ordinary aviation fuel. SkyNRG’s fuel fulfills all quality and safety requirements for jet fuel, and is actually certified in the same class as ordinary aviation fuel.
Finnair’s flight AY846 flown on an Airbus A319.

Finnair is not the only European airline flying biofuel flights. Earlier this month, German airline Lufthansa kicked of a six-month biofuel trial for all scheduled flights between Hamburg and Frankfurt, Germany.

SAS has ordered A320 NEOs to replace MD80´s and old 737´s. Great news. The MD80´s where more than 25 years old, inconvenient and quite noisy. Several MD 80´s was sold to Allegiant this year.

Current fleet (according to airfleets)

737 Old 12
A319 4
A321 8

Great pics. I have always enjoyed flying the 736/738 between AGH and ARN.
I think that SAS some day should consider replacing the 736 with CRJ 900/ 1000´s.

Mayor, DIA expected to announce new service from Icelandair
By Jeffrey Leib
The Denver Post
Posted: 09/08/2011 01:00:00 AM MDT

Mayor Michael Hancock and Denver International Airport officials are expected next week to announce new air service from Icelandair, which will offer one-stop service to numerous European destinations through Reykjavik, Iceland.

The service, expected to start in the first quarter of next year, probably will offer travelers a lower-cost alternative for flying to numerous major European destinations, including Paris, Amsterdam and Munich.

Icelandair currently serves a number of U.S. cities, including Boston; New York; Washington, D.C.; Minneapolis-St. Paul; Orlando, Fla.; and Seattle. The carrier uses Boeing 757​ aircraft.

In Europe, the carrier also serves Madrid; Barcelona, Spain; London; Frankfurt; Copenhagen; Stockholm; Oslo; and numerous other cities.

In a phone interview Wednesday, Hancock said, "We're finishing up a conversation with Icelandair, but right now I can't confirm that we're done and that they have made a final decision."

Hancock said in conversations with Icelandair executives that he and other local officials emphasized the advantage of Denver's geography.

"Where we're located, we can get passengers from all over the western United States to go to Europe," he said.

Currently, DIA has one daily nonstop round-trip service between Denver and London on British Airways and a similar daily flight to Frankfurt on Lufthansa.

DIA's other international service includes flights to Mexico, Costa Rica and Canada.

DIA is eagerly trying to win nonstop service to Tokyo on All Nippon Airways.

Denver officials hope ANA will use its newly acquired Boeing 787​ aircraft for the DIA service, but the Japanese carrier has not committed to the route.
