The new plane had its first test flight last week and more are underway under Airbus before Air Greenland takes over, which will happen on November 30 in Toulouse, where Airbus is headquartered.

After being fitted with Air Greenland etc. safety equipment in the cabin, we have the first flight from Toulouse to Kangerlussuaq on December 7th“, explains Jacob Nitter Sørensen and talks about the sustainable development that Air Greenland is marking with the new aircraft.

The new Airbus Tuukkaq uses up to 20 percent less fuel than the current Norsaq, which is 25 years old. Partially the cabin features new modern seat designs, so that there is room for more seats without sacrificing comfort and distance between the seats, increasing the number of seats from the current 278 to 305. All in all, this means a significant saving in fuel and thus CO2 emissions per seat kilometer“, explains Jacob Nitter Sorensen.
