SAS introduce new "NextGen" Canadair CRJ900 onto Copenhagen to BHX service

From Thursday 15 January 2009 SAS Scandinavian Airlines
introduced the new NextGen Canadair CRJ900 aircraft on its evening
service from Birmingham to the Danish capital, Copenhagen
The NextGen CRJ900, produced by Bombardier, is the most fuel
efficient in its class. In addition to the environmental and economic
benefits the new model significantly reduces noise pollution as it is
four times quieter than its predecessor
The NextGen CRJ900 offers enhanced passenger comfort with a
redesigned cabin offering spacious new generation seats, greater
storage facilities with larger overhead bins, bigger windows and a
new LED cool lighting system
Commenting on the introduction of the NextGen CRJ900,
Lars-Ove Filipson, General Manager United Kingdom & Ireland,
Scandinavian Airlines said: "Birmingham International is the
premier gateway between the Midlands and Scandinavia and is a
key airport for SAS in the UK. The introduction of the NextGen
CRJ900 shows our commitment to the route and will help us
maintain the high standards of punctuality that SAS is known for.
At a time when competition in the airline industry is tough, it is
very satisfying that SAS is now in a position to improve the quality
and range on offer to our customers"
Paul Kehoe, CEO Birmingham International Airport, said: "We
already have one of the greenest fleets at Birmingham. However,
airports are continually working to reduce noise and lower emissions
so we’re pleased to welcome SAS’ next generation CRJ900 aircraft,
which will further improve the local climate for our neighbours
whilst providing better quality for passengers travelling to
Copenhagen from Birmingham"
