Scandinavian airline SAS said Monday it had placed an order worth 18 billion kroner (1.9 billion euros, $2.8 billion) for 30 Airbus A320neo with an option of 11 more.

The first aircraft will be delivered in the second half of 2016 and the last during 2019, SAS said in a statement.

"This aircraft order, on the coming model of Airbus A320, is a significant and important step in our renewal and harmonization of our aircraft fleet," SAS deputy president and chief financial officer Goeran Jansson said.

"Through this, we will operate with the market's most efficient and environmental friendly short- and medium distance aircraft as from 2016," he added.
