SAS Places $300 Million Order for Boeing 767s
SEATTLE (AP) _ Scandinavian Airlines Services on Thursday ordered four extended-range Boeing 767-300s in a deal worth about $300 million, Boeing Commercial Airplanes said.
With the order, SAS has bought 13 of the twin-engine widebody planes this year, worth approximately $1 billion. The airline holds options for 11 more of the jets.
SAS is to take delivery of its first 767-300ER in March.
The first of the planes ordered Thursday will be delivered in July 1990, Boeing spokesman Tom Cole said.
Boeing has had orders for 632 commercial jets worth a total $29.5 billion this year, an industry record.
A 767-300ER can carry 216 passengers and has a range of up to 7,200 miles. SAS’s planes will be equipped with Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines.
