Air Greenland brand new Airbus A330-800neo aircraft rolled out of the Airbus paint shop in Toulouse, France, nearing its entry into service. 

The new aircraft features a bold red livery with medium-size white dots on the plane’s vertical stabilizer.  

The airline’s new A330-800neo aircraft, registered as OY-GKN, will replace Air Greenland’s 24-year-old A330-200 jet. The new aircraft will transport both passenger and cargo and is intended to enter Air Greenland’s fleet in the fourth quarter of 2022. 

The A330-800neo variant has been an unpopular plane, with only a total of 11 orders since the beginning of its production from Garuda Indonesia, Kuwait Airlines, and Uganda Airlines. This compares to a total of 262 orders of Airbus A330-900neo variant since the start of its production. 

Air Greenland is currently operating a total of eight aircraft with an average age of 25.2 years old, according to Planespotters.net. The airline’s fleet comprises one A330-200 and seven De Havilland Canada Dash 8 turboprops.
