The first SAS aircraft to feature its new-look interior will enter service next month.

The carrier is upgrading cabins on-board seven long-haul A330 and A340 aircraft — the design features a new on-demand in-flight entertainment system with high-definition screens and wifi access in all classes.

SAS said that an A330 aircraft called Erik Viking is the final phase of refurbishment. It is set to take to the skies in mid-February.

Eivind Roald, executive vice president commercial at SAS, said: "We are delighted to be about to unveil the new cabin to our customers. It will give SAS a big boost and our customers a totally new travel experience."

SAS Business will contain massage seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. Each seat will have direct access to an aisle, an individual power outlet and USB port, and can be folded fully-flat with a minimum length of 77 ins. The IFE screens will be 15 inches. The bedding comes from Hästens, the oldest bed manufacturer in Sweden.

SAS Plus (premium economy) will be in a 2-3-2 configuration with a seat pitch of 37/38 inches. The IFE screen will be 12 ins and each seat will have an individual power outlet and USB port.

The airline said that work fitting the new cabin onto all seven aircraft is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

It also has four new A330-300s on order, which are due to be delivered this year and next, and eight A350-900s to be delivered from 2018 onwards with an option on an additional six.

SAS this week introduced a "restaurant experience in the air" in business class on long-haul flights (see news, January 27).
