Air Greenland has confirmed an order for one single Airbus A330-800neo
The one A330-800neo will arrive in a few years and be used to launch two new routes:
Copenhagen to Nuuk and Ilulissat once the runway expansion project in Nuuk and new airport in Ilulissat are completed.
- Air Greenland has been debating whether to choose the Boeing 787 or the A330neo to replace their 21 year old A330-200.
- The one A330-800neo is worth $260 million or 1.75 billion Danish Krone.
“Greater capacity and more routes will mean reduced travel times and lower fares for our customers in the future. Travelers will experience better comfort in the new cabin, and the latest technology makes us the market leader in reducing CO2 emissions per passenger. We are proud of this investment, which will contribute positively to Greenland’s development for many years to come,” says Air Greenland CEO Jacob Nitter Sørensen.
Nice to see another airline order the unpopular A330-800neo. Congrats to Airbus and Air Greenland!
