Since I was curious about the status of Braathens subsequent to their acquisition by SAS, I checked out their website, which states that the two airlines continue to operate independently although their schedules have been coordinated to eliminate overlapping or "wingtip to wingtip" flights. The BU site gives a concise summary of which city pairs within Norway are flown by which airline, or, on routes served by both BU and SK, the number of frequencies operated by each.

My question that was not anwered is... Does Braathens continue to fly scheduled services from Norway to cities on the European continent and/or the U.K.? If so, what routes do they fly? Thanks for your help.

I believe they still fly Oslo-London Gatwick v.v,Oslo-Alicante v.v. and Oslo-Malaga v.v.

Perhaps they should start services on the OSL-ZRH route. There is no competition, since SAS has cancelled it, leaving only Swiss operating this route. Before 9/11 SAS planned to start again 2 daily flights from Oslo to Zurich, but this was cancelled.

They used to operate NCL-OSL, and NCL-SVG using the 737-500.

Braathens operates one daily Bergen-London Gatwick flight and a six a week service Stavanger-Aberdeen. Both are operated with 737-500 aircraft.

I was lucky enough to fly on them LGW-BGO earlier this year and had a great flight. Their Business Class is very nice. They are a great little airline, it's a shame they have been brought under the SAS umbrella. They did operate Oslo-Gatwick but this was discontinued at the oder of SAS to avoid overlap. They also used to fly Stavanger-Newcastle before giving the route to Norwegian Air Shuttle.
