Wings Of Bornholm which is a member of the Sverigeflyg company, is closing the airline, from the 30th of April.

The reason was to many seats on the route, and to many problems with the plane.


Norwegian is now going to use their Boeing 737-300 on the route, starting from the 2nd of May.

Do you have a source?
Their website is not mentioning about this and even accepting bookings.

How about their RNN-CPH services? Also replaced by DY services?

No, Wings Of Bornholm is going to be totally closed down and Norwegian will only have one daily rotation, 4 times a week, starting from the 2nd of May.

The reason for the closing, is because of to tuff competition and lack of money.

You got a point!

Oh ****! I really prefer to fly from Bornholm to Copenhagen rather than sailing from Rønne to Ystad and then driving bus from Ystad to Copenhagen! (35 minutes vs. 2 h. 30 min.)

You're welcome   Remeber that luggage cost 50 DKK/6,72€ when you buy a Saver Flex Ticket at Cimber Sterling. You pay it in the airport at check-in.

Not particularly useful! It's sort of the dilemma with low cost carriers. People want the low fares, but they also want frequencies that meet the actual need for connecting the region to the destination here being the capital.



Future flights: CPH-BRU-CPHx2; CPH-BKK-MNL; MNL-GUM-HNL-LAX

Probably DY had a spare aircraft on ground for some time at CPH, which can fill into the gap to serve a CPH-RNN rotation and make some money at these moments.

This is the new flightplan from Norwegian:

Monday:

CPH 1940 - RNN 2015
RNN 2040 - CPH 2115

Thursday:

CPH 1940 - RNN 2015
RNN 2040 - CPH 2115

Friday:

CPH 2050 - RNN 2125
RNN 2155 - CPH 2230

Sunday:

CPH 2020 - RNN 2055
RNN 2120 - CPH 2155

All flights operated by a Boeing 737-300 i think.

I think this is a pretty good timetable - but it would be better, if the Friday rotation was a afternoon rotation like:

CPH 1430 - RNN 1505
RNN 1545 - CPH 1620

Did Wings Of Bornholm go bust because Norwegian cancelled the contract with them, or did they cancel the contract because they went bust? It would be a shame if it was the former.

What routes did the airline have?



That'll teach you

No, Wings Of Bornholm didn't have the money to operate with low-fare tickets (the cheapest costed 25,53€/34,68$) and because "there were to high amount of seats on the route" (This means because of Cimber Sterling).

Wings Of Bornholm just operated the Bornholm - Copenhagen - Bornholm route.

They had also planned to fly the Bornholm - Ronneby (Sweden) - Bornholm route, in co-operation with blekingeflyg.se, but because of low sales-numbers, it was even planned to cancel the route anyway.
