SAS unveiled a new livery this week as it prepares to take delivery of its first of 8 Airbus A350 aircraft. The new livery will be applied to new A350s and A320neos as they are delivered and painted onto the rest of the fleet during standard maintenance visits. The entire SAS fleet will wear the new livery by 2024.
