I understand Braathens is now part of the SAS group and that their aircraft are slowly being repainted into the SAS Braathens version of the SAS group livery.

I presumed that the aircraft concerned would be the ex Braathens 73's but notice on this website that several of the main airlines 736's and 737's are in the new livery. I also note that some of them used to be configured for domestic ops and some for Euro ops.

What will be the exact status of SAS Braathens. Will it fly ex Braathens routes or will it be confined to Norweigan routes. Also which aircraft will make up the final airline?

The SAS Braathens fleet will be made up of Braathens fleet of Boeing 737-400/500/700 aswell as a good chunk of SAS Norway's fleet of B737-600/700/800 and SAS Commuter's remaining Fokker 50.

All in all the fleet will be around 42 B737s and 5 F50s.

SAS Braathens will be flying domestic Norwegian routes, and International routes from Norway. However they will not fly on long haul routes, and a portion of the intra Scandinavian routes will be operated by other parts of the SAS group.

Here's a detailed history of the airline and its operations: http://www.plane-spotter.com/Airlines/SAS_Braathens/index.htm

And here's a fleet list:

Thanks for the info CEO@AFG

So I presume we'll see the SAS Braathens aircraft at LHR operating the Oslo and Bergen routes some time?

So far, don't think any of the original Braathens aircraft have visited. Maybe due to seat configurations I suppose.

Quoting CEO@AFG (Reply 1):

You mean 52 737s? Of SAS 75 Boeing 737 we have 23 in Stockholm. (18 736 and five 738).

Could be that they are still operating on two different AOC. Ex Braathens fleet use callsign Scanor while ex "SAS Norway" uses Scandinavian.

Notice an SAS Braathens 73 was down to operate into LHR this am. Perhaps they will start appearing more regularly from now on.
