Scandinavian Airlines announced on Wednesday that travelers will soon be able to start reserving seats on the company’s first commercial flights aboard electric planes, scheduled to take place in five years and bound for Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
The Stockholm-based airline group SAS said that there will be 30 seats available for each of the three flights and that the day and place of take-off will be informed to travelers via email once it has been decided. Online reservations will be available from Friday.
The airline added that the price will be the same in the three Scandinavian currencies, from 1,946, which represents the year in which SAS began to fly.
“The fact that we can invite our passengers to the next milestone in the future of aviation is a natural continuation of the pioneering spirit and an important step in our journey towards more sustainable aviation,” said the CEO of SAS, Anko van der Werff.
He referred to the fact that Scandinavian Airlines started flying over the North Pole in 1957 to significantly shorten the flight time between continents when it launched its commercial route between Copenhagen and Tokyo.
In September, SAS signed a “support letter” with Heart Aerospace, based in Sweden, to make electric planes. The company plans to add the ES-30 aircraft from Aerospace to your regional fleet.
Several airlines have plans to use electric planes on short commercial flights.
