Not sure, but the first will arrive in a few weeks, with the first flight being on 22/12. Currently in ZRH.
Next one should follow within a few weeks, and is in OSR at the moment. Both ex-Indigo aircrafts.

Then is there a few questions regarding the two former Spanair aircrafts. I've seen at least one of them painted, but have no idea how much more work are needed before they're ready.

Are they getting the new SAS seats or will they be fitted with the seats fitted on other SK Airbus narrowbodies?

As it's only for a few weeks it's probably more due to availability of aircraft rather than high demand. August might be a busy month, but September is usually a bit slow.

Not from what I hear and it is btw for 9 weeks - they need the additional capacity and both August and September are quite busy for Air Canada at CPH. They could for sure also have used the A333 in June and July, but this was not possible for S13...

Seems like SAS will increase the frequencies on the following routes from CPH during the summer months of 2013 compared to this year (in addition to the new routes)

New frequencies will be:

Alicante - 5x weekly (new from 11/2012)
Athens - 11x weekly
Bucaresti - 6x weekly
Malaga - 5x weekly
Nice - 15x weekly
Palma - 7x weekly
Pristina - 6x weekly
Rome - 12x weekly
Split - 7x weekly
Tel Aviv - 4x weekly

Some minor adjustments - Alicante will now only operate with up to four flights a week. Probably due to the Vueling entry on this route. Malaga will on the other hand operate with up to daily flights iso 5x week.

As SAS announced last week they will be opening new routes this summer, including BIQ.

I've tried to book CPH-BIQ for summer 2013 but can't find any flights - does anyone know the schedule and when the route will launch?

Edit: found the schedule:

SK 797 CPH-BIQ 07:55-10:40 Mon A321
SK 798 BIQ-CPH 11:25-14:00 Mon A321

SK 797 CPH-BIQ 16:10-18:55 Fri A320
SK 798 BIQ-CPH 19:40-22:15 Fri A320

Doesn't A321 seem *a lot* for CPH-BIQ? Don't get me wrong, I'm delighted - just seems a lot of capacity.

Route starts 28JUN2013.

The snow at ARN is not too bad. About a decimeter today, But it is very very windy and the wind is blowing all this weeks snow across the runways.
Our flight grounded due poor braking actrion.
I was on the ramp at midnight and I had to park my van in front of the aircraft as a wind break as i could not stand up on the snowy ground in the wind.

14 from what I can see. 12 will be leased, mainly (or all?) ex-Indigo, while the two remaining are owned by SAS and was with Spanair.

They will be based in CPH, and can be expected on most/all routes that sees MD-80/319/321 today. In addition I think they will be used on one of the daily GOT-LHR

There is a bit more to this than what has leaked out so far. They will start 03JUN13 and everything is cleared and confirmed from Emirates in regards to all operational facilities at Arlanda.
Both OSL and ARN where in the final run this fall, but ARN took it home and an opening of OSL is not likely to happen before earliest OCT13. I guess Brussels are in there too. By all commercial means, ARN is the obvious choice as their second destination in Scandinavia.
It hardly comes as a surprise that Stockholm is launched before Oslo and it's actually about time.
I have no doubt that ARN will be a great success for Emirates. Especially with the very limited competition it will face from Stockholm.

Gulf have given away their slots at CPH for the summer season of 2013 and an announcement of their closer are expected soon. I think it in general has more to do with their general lack of performance through their whole network, rather than CPH as a single destination. From what I have heard, it's been performing surprisingly well and the actual reason for why the launch to ARN was postponed and the capacity was used to bring CPH up to daily.
Even if they reversed their suspension, they would not be able to retain their slots, as IATA's application period for S13 where over months ago and new slots are out for the airlines until final closure in the end of January.

OSL released their November numbers today. 3,7% increase to a total of 1.784.058 pax.
Domestic increased by 2,7% and 4,8% on the international routes.

The Numbers for OSL is actually very interesting as it could be the first time ever that OSL exceeds CPH as the largest airport in Northern Europe in terms of total amount of passengers. If CPH's growth is under 1,2%, November 2012 will be a historic month for OSL. The race is also very close for December, January and February based on the 2011/12 numbers.
However, with the past months release of passenger numbers for CPH, I'll be surprised if it will be bellow 1,2% for November.

g2scandinavia, you have not counted the transit passengers (as CPH do). Therefore the number of passengers at OSL was 1,788,373 in November and that equals to a growth of 3.88% from last year. In November OSL passed a mile stone - the 22 million passenger per 12 months mile stone.

Close call with CPH presenting 2,2% growth for NOV. 1.799.408 pax went through the airport. Only 15.350 pax in favour of CPH for NOV. Thats the second closes month after February 2012 where the difference was only 11.513 pax.

I'm tempted to throw in the 1,1% infants and lack of transit included, but I'll let the title stay down south some month more

The Numbers for OSL is actually very interesting as it could be the first time ever that OSL exceeds CPH as the largest airport in Northern Europe in terms of total amount of passengers. If CPH's growth is under 1,2%, November 2012 will be a historic month for OSL. The race is also very close for December, January and February based on the 2011/12 numbers.
However, with the past months release of passenger numbers for CPH, I'll be surprised if it will be bellow 1,2% for November.

Close but no cigar - CPH up 2,2% in November (new monthly record):

CPH/UK/INVESTOR/Traffic/2012/November.htm" target="_blank">http://www.cph.dk/CPH/UK/INVESTOR/Traffic/2012/November.htm

The growth rate for the international traffic is more or less identical at CPH and OSL. OSL up 4,8% and CPH up 4,4%. However as the internal traffic at CPH is twice the size compared to OSL, the absolute numbers differs: OSL +44.000 int. pax to 869.000 and CPH +69.000 int. pax. to 1.624.000 In other words CPH increases the gap to OSL when we talk about international traffic

Well, it depends on from what angle you are looking at the Christmas three......

Local market increased by 15.966 pax from CPH . Year to date the local market have only increased by 202.800pax on international routes. OSL have at the same time han an increase of 260.036 pax locally on international services from an area CPH benchmarks as under half of its own size in terms of potential local market.
Year to-date 9.141.669 of the international pax at OSL where local.
Transfer pax from mostly other Nordic countries are the main reason for CPH's growth in international traffic.

The numbers for OSL year to date is also interesting in terms of HUB structure. OSL have a significant increase of transfer passengers and total transfer now holds 22% of the total traffic. Similar numbers for CPH are 24%.
Next year, Avinor and the Norwegian Custom will launch custom free transfer trough OSL on international to domestic flights. Avinor and OSL expect the amount of transfer pax to increase significantly challenging CPH not only as the largest airport in Northern Europe, but also as the largest Scandinavian hub

SAS767, you forgot to mention that 26.2% of traffic at CPH are transfers in November and a vast majority of this type of passengers either are heading to or heading from other Nordic countries - not exactly local demand. The differences between CPH and OSL isn't that large for passengers on international flights when you take in to account OSL has two neighbouring airports, RYG and TRF, that have over 2.6 million additional international passengers (11 first months this year) to the 11 million OSL have. The same can be said about Arlanda; if you take in to account the international passengers at Skavsta and Bromma.

The uniqueness of CPH is:
- Star Alliance hub thanks to the SAS Group with feeds from Finland, Sweden and Norway.
- No a real national hub since there is only very low domestic passenger numbers (Jutlanders try to avoid CPH).
- Thanks to the Oresund Bridge many Scanians have CPH as their home airport even though they have MMX in their midst.

Unfortunately, I can not provide all details on an open forum but it's been debated and also presented in the TV News.
I would be surprised if there are no articles about it out there. Look up Dagsrevyen at NRK 21NOV12.

What I can say is that they are starting with a "test" before they conclude on a permanent solution. It is this test that will start next year. NHO Luftfart Avinor and other institutions have putted much effort info this and the Norwegian Customs aren't to happy about it.
It's also a bad kept secret that the whole Pier North (T2) have a planned baggage handling system that has been constructed for custom clearance on end destination.

OSL have calculated on a potential of at least 2 million new international pax pr year if they get a solution on the custom international-domestic issue. Mainly pax to/from NO.

Is it on purpose you try to provide incorrect numbers? The increase of int. local pax from CPH was in November 39.000 pax (source: cph.dk) and not 16.000 pax as you state. The same number for OSL in November was 2.000 pax (source: avinor.no)

Total increase of int. local pax from CPH YTD is 492.000 pax (source: cph.dk) and not 202.800 pax as you state. The same number for OSL YTD is 270.000 (Source: avionor.no)

Total local int. pax at CPH YTD is 15.100.000 compared to 9.142.000 at OSL.

I am pretty sure that we now can agree that the growth of int. local pax at CPH in absolute numbers exceeds the growth at OSL in the same segment!

Based on the fact that CPH this year has been hit by a number of bankruptcies - Cimber Sterling (limited presence at OSL), Spanair (not online at OSL) and Malev (not online at OSL) it is quite impressive to keep up the growth rates in the international traffic.

Well, I have unfortunately fallen into the trap of using CPH.dk's front material for the numbers above.
In total the numbers are correct, but it's strongly driven down by the collapse of domestic traffic. It's not presented on the front page (just as a total) and I have no problem correcting that with your information when I'm no presented with the sheet.

For Avinor, the numbers are more complex than whats been presented. That's because OSL have added incentives for airlines to report transfer. Airlines reporting transfer pax will not pay the 55nok security fee for the passengers. Until this year, several large handling companies and airlines have not presented this numbers correctly. However as in my previous post, thats the numbers presented and thats what should be used as the material for comparisment.

But I'm afraid your obvious hope for a bashing motive brings more amusement to me than anything else!

I have always admired your ability to bring failed services and airlines into the discussion.
have you ever thought of why they failed?

OSL and ARN have a more conservative approach to new airlines and services than CPH.
CPH's approach brings more risk and a higher turnover on new services which naturally affect the numbers of passengers. Blaming failed services and airlines that have brought volumes in on non sustainable markets should argument for a lesson in capitalism.

Hub for what? Noone can dispute CPH:s position in this respect for international travellers. OSL is driven by the domestic network to a large extent. Both CPH and ARN have larger markets for international travel any way you twist it. And OSL is not to be regarded as hub for international travel the way CPH is. Even ARN is ahead with a larger market.

If you think outside the normal SAS box Stefan and move all eastbound SAS IC flights to ARN, SAS could have saved 7-8% measured in passenger kilometres to do the same job. With the margins of today that may well be the difference between loosing money and earning money for SAS on eastbound IC routes. Moving westbound IC routes to OSL would have saved 5-6%, and even gathering all IC flights to ARN would have save up to around 1% for the westbound IC part.

Since we are comparing international passengers between the three Scandinavian countries - let's take closer look and start with Sweden.

Sweden has 17 airports with more than 25,000 international passengers year to date (for Swedavia airports I have numbers for January - November, the 11 other I have used January - October numbers), and the total number for Sweden is 21.7 million international passengers. The number of domestic passengers at the same airports is 11.0 million.

Norway has 13 airports with more than 25,000 international passengers year to date (January - November), and the total number for Norway is 19.1 million international passengers. The number of domestic passengers at the same airports is 24.6 million.

Denmark has only 4 airports with more than 25,000 international passengers year to date (January - November), and the total number for Denmark is 23.0 million international passengers. The number of domestic passengers at the same airports is 3.0 million. 5.2 million of the passengers at CPH are transfer passengers, and estimated 3.4 million of these are international passengers - and a large share of these passengers are heading to/from Finland, Sweden and Norway. It is therefore more correct to say Denmark (+ Scania) has 19.6 million international passengers.

With this little overview it isn't so clear anymore that CPH is a clear Scandinavian hub. There is another airline that has realized this and I don't think it is even necessary to name it. For June next year we will start to see a change.

You are asking a question base on a statement that have not been raised.
The definition of hub is not connected exclusively to the total numbers of international passengers in transit or transfer.
As an international HUB, no airport in Northern Europe will ever be able to challenge CPH on that title as long as it’s the main hub for the largest international airline
In Scandinavia. I can not see that statement raised anywhere in this thread?

But to close the eyes for the development of OSL where transfer are growing rapidly and the planned implementation of effective custom clearance transfer is expected to bring in 2 million new passengers, is just a mindless rejection of the current development.
Norwegians in cities outside OSL’s local catchment area avoids the airport when they travel internationally and with good reasons. The result can be seen with the impressive route network directly to other effective hubs with airlines such as SAS, KLM, BA and Lufthansa. By the end of this year, 22% of the traffic at OSL will be connecting passengers using OSL. That’s the definition of a hub and a hub structure where passengers connect to other destinations domestically and internationally.

It’s a topic that can be discussed up and down for hours, but opening up for effective transfer will bring inn more transfer passengers. OSL is now well connected to the largest markets in Europe and to major destinations in other continents.
Having up to 30 flights out of OSL to BGO/TRD/SVG will most certainly give attractive connections to many of the international trunk routes from OSL, compared to 2-5 daily to AMS, FRA and CPH. This will bring in more passengers to OSL all dough the current destinations served from these airports are not likely to be threaten.

When or if OSL passes CPH as the largest airport in Scandinavia, the numbers of passengers in transfer will probably be more or less the same as at CPH. Finding a new definition to defend the title of the largest hub could be difficult unless “international” are added to the title.

Long answers from our norwegian friends to the statement that CPH is still the major hub for int´l traffic in the Nordic countries. With traffic at OSL mainly originating in Norway the growth will have a limit until more tourist and business traffic is added to the figures. CPH, ARN have more international traffic.

The size of OSL as such is mainly dependent on lack of surface transportation facilities in Norway because if you geography. The domestic traffic thus has a large portion of the traffic. In both Denmark and Sweden you can use other means of transportation than air travel to a large extent.

ARN and CPH will in the next years still attract more international traffic from foreign carriers I suppose.

The day rumors among SAS captains turn out to be based on discussions in SAS management I will be genuinly surprised. This will not happen in SAS as it is now. And I´m not disappointed, I just know how SAS works.

I doubt SAS will be the answer to need for longhaul routes out of OSL. The answer spells Norwegian instead. Ive been around long enough to know that SAS will not move any longhaul routes out of CPH, nor will they start anything more out of OSL nor ARN unless forced to.

Growth of 6,2% at OSL with 643.000 new international pax versus ARN with 4% growth and 530.000.
You can also add a decline of aprox -10% at Skavsta so far this year in deep contrast to the growth on Rygge and Torp.

The problem with OSL is that the airport is full in peak. ARN and CPH is not even near the restrictions at OSL.
There are no openings for new airlines for at least two years.
Many airlines want to open bases or add services but are on hold until they can receive attractive slots.
Given the fact that the growth is almost solitary based on existing routes and services, the numbers are impressive.
Growth as a result of new airlines and services should hardly come as a surprice. If it's sustainable is another question....

I think you are running out of arguments. Its all domestic. I say again.. ARN and CPH are more important international hubs than OSL will ever be. It has to do with the market. Norwegans are wealthy tourist travellers but that alone does not sustain international longhaul routes the way CPH works. You need business travel too. OSL can sustain a route to MIA perhaps apart from what you have now. The rest will go from ARN or CPH as it is right now.

OSL has a lot of domestoc traffic just because you can not go fast enough by road nor train in your country. But bu all means dream on. I like you anyway!!

I just want to complete my argument...

Norwegian traffic has to do with lack of ground transportation domestically and an enormous oil induced growth in private tourist travel out of all norwegian airports mainly to the mediterranean and perhaps Thailand. This differs from traffic out of Denmark and Sweden where you also have a substantial business travel and also incoming tourist traffic from abroad,

This sums up to ARN and CPH being more interesting for international airline expansion as it is right now. Im not talking about future... OSL and Rygge etc is Norwegian and Ryanair country with total lack of business travel.

But OSL has its growth no doubt. But remember where it comes from. Wealthy norwegian tourists going abroad. And transiting from Bodö, Trondheim and such... So international airlines with more incoming traffic will have less interest in OSL or Rygge than Norwegian and Ryanair right now.

In addition to PEK and SIN. Also remember that routes to the Far East does not have to be filled to the same extent because of huge cargo volumes that brings in cash as well.

But I do agree with you that both CPH and ARN are bigger international markets than OSL.

BA Norway

BA boss says that the good traffic figures between Norway and the United Kingdom stir among airline group management in London:

- In particular, one is impressed by the high percentage of business travelers. In terms of population, for example, Norway twice as large number of business and Denmark.

Lufthansa Norway

Scandinavia with Finland are very important for Lufthansa. For Norway is on the top internationally in the use of business travel, and the market is huge even though Norway has fewer residents than in the rest of Europe.

KLM international

- Financial Crisis? We have not noticed any of the financial crisis on our routes from Norway. We make it record good, despite the recession elsewhere in the world, says Daniel Eggenberger, head of Air France-KLM in Scandinavia, to the newspaper.

The newspaper writes that for KLM, Norway is the most important country as the number of passengers. The Norwegians also like to pay very well for for their tickets making our business product even more popular.

Continental (United) and Thai have also expressed the same in media. Search and you will find.
There was also a similar article from Qatar this summer, but i cant find it now.

Also Norwegian air fare index presented their numbers this week stating that rates and fares are higher from OSL compared to ARN and CPH on both European and intercontinental services.

But I do agree with you that both CPH and ARN are bigger international markets than OSL.

Quote you on that one. Also Stockholm have all my respect by adding the title as the capital of Scandinavia. I love the city and it's ridiculously undeserved. EK will be a instant success from ARN.

BA added a fifth daily rotation in November. Still, they are frequent inn and out with 320 and 321 so they are doing ok.

If OSL is to be served by BA to LCY, they will need to operate a similar schedule as ARN-LCY.
That means a night stop with a departure out of OSL before 07:30 am.
New airlines and services aren't to keen on leaving aircraft and crew overnight.
Flying in and out from 10am - 14pm the earliest are not the recipe for a yield generator.
Until more peak slots will be added, we are unlikely to See any new European services aiming for the core business market.

By the way, any idea why BA went for Arlanda and not Bromma for their LCY service? Had my first trip to the airport this fall and I fell in love with it. It must be more convinient as a buiness trunk service to London than from ARN?
Shorter terminal transit time and a very effective location that is easy to reach in the morning peak makes me think of it as a more attractive option?

I recently spoke with a senior manager at LCY and he said that BA had recently started talks with Bromma about possibly moving the service to Bromma.

SE-DIL leaving OSL 29NOV to BYH

Seems like there was a little delay as SE-DIL had to wait for today untill leaving for the scrapper. However, the next one LN-ROX is supposed to follow over the Atlantic tomorrow, and SE-DIS is supposed to have its last revenue flight today. So the MDs are leaving the SAS fleet in a steady stream. There is also rumours about a potential acceleration of the MD retirement

The first A320 for SAS, OY-KAL, is supposed to arrive in CPH today, with first revenue flight on Saturday. The next one, OY-KAM, is planned to arrive in CPH in the middle of January

It would hardly come as a surprise that Flybe has immediately terminated their OSL-BMA.
Todays flights are cancelled and all flights has been removed from flybe.se from today and onwards.

Flybe did not get any attractive slots and the service was on death row even before the first flight.
They did apply for new destinations and change of schedule from OSL for S13, but the lack of capacity did not give them any
attractive departure times and a combination of other services out of OSL for S12 was then impossible to be introduced.

I’m a bit surprised why SAS have not introduced Widerøe on this service at an earlier stage.
Stockholm is by far the larges international local market from OSL with a high percentage of business traffic.
Circling inn Bromma would most definitely bring them some advantages over DY to Stockholm.
The market is definitely there, but the service must be known to the public with an attractive schedule.
I think Widerøe is the airline to fill that niche.

Don't you partially give an explaination on why not, when describing FlyBE's failure on OSL-BMA?  
I guess it neither for WF would be possible to get the needed slot for such a service, without sacrifice an existing service? And during peak, the flights on OSL-ARN today seems to be going quite full with good yields, based on my experiences?

Although I agree that the market and its willingness to pay, should be there

Slots are complicated things, but operators like DY and SK/WF have such large operations that they can "fill" inn departures in peak by moving slightly on their own schedules. This is what DY and partly SK have done towards the S13 season with the new services launched. DY have also managed to push one additional aircraft in on OSL for the S13 season. For new carriers however, this is impossible as slots are not open for trade at OSL.
However as i wrote, I'm surprised why SK and Widerøe has not done this earlier and long before the airport where congested.

Yes, Stockholm is performing very well and always has because of the close ties of SE-NO. However SK could have provided their costumers with a sharper product by flying in and out of Bromma trice daily in adition to ARN. I used the airport this fall, and I'm still impressed by the convenience how time effective it was to reach some of Stockholm's central areas. It took me less than 3 hours to move from central Oslo to Kungsholmen in Stockholm.

I find it interesting that BA are really pushing Norwegian routes now with flights from LHR T5 to OSL, SVG and BGO... Now some flights have been upgauged on OSL: I recently flew on an A321 from LHR. Also, it wouldn't surprise me if we saw a 767 on the route at some point in the future as BA flights to OSL are always packed full and BA has a huge customer base there... I guess the lack of direct longhaul connections with SAS and the likes as well as people's desire to avoid CPH at all costs has pushed Norwegian passengers onto BA. Now that they have a world class facility at LHR, I can understand.

Maybe it is just a sign that OSL can sustain more direct longhaul flights than it already does? I think people here are really undererstimating Norway as an economic powerhouse at the moment.



Next Flights: LGW-SVG (738-DY), SVG-LHR (319-BA), LHR-HKG (388-BA), HKG-SYD (333-CX), SYD-HKG (333-CX), HKG-LHR (388-BA)

SAS will most likely lease an A340-300 from Airbus from first half of 2013. Meaning they will have eight in their fleet, and enables them to restart BKK from the winter season and have some spare in their fleet. They went for A340 instead of A340 as it can be used on all their routes and the leasing cost compared to an A330 is about half the price

Sounds amazing, do you have any sources or is it some kind of inside information?

I really hope that BKK is coming back, but they could maybe also use it in the joint venture with Singapore.

In Standby.dk CPH reveals that there will be announced two new IC routes in 2013. Opinions about what to expect? TAM and Sri Lankan have been talked about but not likely at all anymore considering TAM leaving Star and Sri Lankan with financial difficulties. United has left CPH and Delta has been cutting back the past years only leaving SAS operating year around to the US so I AA a good candidate? To JFK or MIA? Air China to PEK, will they come next year? And I bet CPH are doing whatever they can to get Ethiopian to move from ARN.


And how about DU? When will they start their operations at CPH?

In the Stand By article only SK to SFO is mentioned. So it is two more long haul flights apart from that flight. But AT to Casablanca is not mentioned. Could that be considered long haul? In my opinion no, but it is transcontinental.

So one new flight then (perhaps). I would bet my money on CA to Beijing.

And a wild guess: What about Jet Airways? Where are they planning to put the capacity withdrawn from Milan?

It's Norwegian and DU. The third aircraft due to be delivered next fall, will be used to also launch services out of Copenhagen in additional to new routes from OSL/ARN. Cape Town I've heard and probably Miami or Bangkok. Norwegian will present the new destinations this winter so it's not long before it's presented to the public.
