Air Greenland becomes the new operator of the Airbus A330neo
The Air Greenland airline has taken delivery of an Airbus A330-800 aircraft, becoming the latest operator of this type of aircraft.
The A330neo will replace previous generation aircraft in the company's fleet, reducing operating costs and improving environmental efficiency. Air Greenland's A330neo is configured to carry 305 passengers, with 42 Premium class seats and 263 Economy class seats. Air Greenland has also signed an agreement with Airbus on Flight Hours Services (FHS) which covers the supply of components and maintenance services. Based on a circular economy and carbon footprint reduction model, the European manufacturer's FHS offers greater sustainability throughout the aircraft's life cycle. To underscore Air Greenland's sustainability strategy, the delivery flight will be made with a 30% blend of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). The airline will first deploy the A330neo between the Arctic island and Denmark, adding North American and European routes later. By the end of October, the A330 Family had registered a total of more than 1,700 firm orders, of which 275 are A330neos from 24 customers.
