Air Greenland has taken delivery of an A330-800 wide-body aircraft, becoming the latest operator of the type.
The A330neo will replace previous-generation aircraft in the company’s fleet, reducing operating cost, improving environmental efficiency while offering an unrivalled passenger experience. Air Greenland’s A330neo will comfortably accommodate 305 passengers, featuring 42 premium-class seats and 263 economy-class seats.
Air Greenland has also firmed up an agreement with Airbus on Flight Hour Services (FHS) covering component supply and maintenance services. Based on a circular economy model and carbon footprint reduction, the Airbus FHS offers more sustainability throughout the aircraft’s life cycle. More than 1,200 aircraft worldwide are currently being contracted under Airbus FHS.
To underline Air Greenland’s sustainability strategy the delivery flight will be powered by a 30% blend of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Air Greenland will first deploy the A330neo between the arctic island and Denmark, adding North American and European routes at a later date.
