SAS Scandinavian Airlines (SK, Copenhagen Kastrup) has announced it will retire its last B737-700 on November 19 with a special farewell flight from Stockholm Arlanda to Oslo Gardermoen. The airline thus completes its rollover to all-Airbus narrowbody fleet.

The carrier confirmed that the farewell flight will be operated by LN-RRB (msn 32276).

The ch-aviation fleets module shows that SAS continues to deploy four B737-700s. All are based out of Oslo, even though one is registered in Sweden. SAS's B737s seat up to 141 passengers in a single-class layout and all have been operated by the airline since new. The remaining four active aircraft are 17.7 years old on average and are all owned by the airline. The Scandinavian carrier operated up to thirty B737-700s in 2015 and has since been gradually downsizing the type's fleet.

One of SAS's B737-700s is convertible into a medevac aircraft availed when needed to the Royal Norwegian Air Force (NOW, Oslo Gardermoen). The airline said earlier this year that it was working on solutions to continue providing this type of service to the military. The Air Force did not respond to ch-aviation's request for comment.

The carrier retired its last B737-400s and B737-500s in 2013, followed by B737-600s in 2019, and B737-800s earlier this year. It continues to own five -800s, of which four are dry-leased to Jet2 (United Kingdom), the ch-aviation fleets ownership module reveals. Its new-generation narrowbody fleet comprises sixty-one A320-200Ns (including 25 operated by SAS Connect), with eighteen more on order, and three A321-200NX.
