Will buy A330-800neo

Air Greenland has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Airbus for an order of one A330-800neo, becoming the third customer to ever place an order for the smallest variant of the A330neo family.

Air Greenland has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Airbus for an order of one A330-800neo, becoming the third customer to ever place an order for the smallest variant of the A330neo family.

The carrier plans to use the new-engined widebody to replace its 22-year-old A330-200, which was originally delivered to Sabena in September 1998.

The new aircraft will “efficiently serve the needs of the community by linking Greenland and Copenhagen,” noted Airbus in a public statement.

This order is excellent news for Airbus, as its A330-800neo has failed to be as efficient as its bigger sister ship in terms of sales.

Customers have opted for the larger A330-900neo, which has managed to sell 325 planes as of December 2019, in contrast to the 14 planes that the -800neo has effectively sold.

Air Greenland now joins Kuwait Airways and Uganda Airlines as the sole customers for the A330-800neo.
