In September 2019, SAS unveiled an all-new livery, which was showcased on a new A350 and an A320neo, before gradually being rolled out to the whole fleet. SAS expects the whole fleet to be repainted by 2024. In October 2020, the airline was the third in Europe (after TAP and Aer Lingus) to introduce the Airbus A321LR on long-range flights across the Atlantic. The withdrawal of Norwegian from long-haul operation will be important for the carrier’s traffic figures once the Covid crisis will be over.
