I know this has been discussed a little in the Finnish Aviation thread but I think it warrants its own thread... Although if this already has its own threat then please delete this one .. I couldn't find one though!
Anyway here is a press release from the SAS group website:
Blue1 has secured slots for daily operation, Helsinki - London Heathrow starting on March 30 2008. The flights will be operated by MD-90 aircraft
I think it is quite significant as it isn't very often we see a new operator into LHR and also that they managed to obtain slots!
Will also be great to see MD-90s back at LHR after SAS withdrew them...

Quoting B742 (Reply 1): Any idea on which terminal will be used?
I'm not sure.. Everything at Heathrow is changing after T5 opens... i'm guessing Blue1 will stick with SAS and will be served by SGS... I heard Star Alliance is being relocated to Terminal 4 until Heathrow East is built?
Seems like Blue1 had to be rather flexible with their time to be able to get a daily LHR slot as seen from the schedule. The departure/arrival times varies from day to day. Their time on the ground also will vary between 2hr and 3h10m
