SAS Scandinavian Airlines (SK, Copenhagen Kastrup) took delivery of the first of its three A321-200NX(LR)s, SE-DMO (msn 9541), on October 15, 2020.

The Airbus narrowbody was ferried from Hamburg Finkenwerder to Copenhagen Kastrup powered by fuel comprising 10% addition of biofuel. It is dry-leased from Air Lease Corporation and powered by CFM International LEAP-1A33 engines. The aircraft is outfitted with 157 passenger seats, including 22 business class seats, 12 premium economy class seats, and 123 economy class seats.

SAS plans to use the type predominantly on thinner routes from Scandinavia to North America - either to sustain highly seasonal services through the low season or to launch entirely new routes. According to the current schedule data, the type is due to debut on December 15, 2020, on the Copenhagen-Boston route. However, due to the prevailing restrictions covering the European Union-United States travel, it is uncertain if the schedule will remain in place.

SAS already operates a substantial fleet of Airbus narrowbodies entailing four A319-100s, eleven A320-200s, forty-one A320-200Ns (including seven operated by SAS Scandinavian Airlines Ireland), and eight A321-200s.
