Croatia Airlines is starting new routes from Zagreb to ARN (3x weekly from May 19), OSL (2x weekly from May 21) and HEL (3x weekly from May 22) using CRJ-1000 leased from Air Nostrum. CPH where they already fly will also get the CRJ-1000

At least for OSL, they will be the only CRJ-1000 operator

Seems there is some changes at shareholders of airBaltic.

https://translate.google.com/translate? ... a%2F788263

https://translate.google.com/translate? ... t=&act=url


Sorry, too lazy to translate on my own. Here is some google translate from other article in latvian:
Latvian national airline "Air Baltic Corporation" ( "airBaltic") Ralph Montagu-Girmesa place to enter other investor might Danish entrepreneur Lars Thuesen, referring to unofficial information reported on Monday Latvian Television (LTV) program "Panorama".

On Tuesday government session secret paragraph of the report, see "About the consent to transfer property rights to participation in SIA" Aircraft Leasing 1 "." That company is wholly owned by Montagu-Girmesam, thus ensuring he founded in 1995. "airBaltic" about 20% of participation. The main shareholder is the Latvian state with 80.05% of the shares.

ATVs, referring to unofficial information says that the government require the consent to transfer LLC "Aircraft Leasing1" other investor's hands, which could possibly be a Danish businessman Thuesen.

Why Montag-Girmess might have agreed to dispose of disposing "airBaltic" shares, the ATV is not clarified as to their own contact has failed.

The newspaper "Dienas Bizness" previously reported that Montag-Girmess might not be the national airline "airBaltic" investor, pointing out that such a statement as the basis for a multi-source indication of any possible schemes for both "airBaltic" attracting investors and new aircraft purchase transaction.

The newspaper reported that the consulting company "Prudentia" in how to find a German investor Montagu-Girmesam never been and also the investment at the time did not have their money. However, last year the end of March it was announced that German investor has invested 52 million euros in exchange for 20% of the airline's shares.

Newspaper sources have made that unlikely suddenly to himself such money could be uzradusies rather already he could have found some other companies who have on a signboard.

Last year the end of March an agreement was signed between the Latvian government and "airBaltic" investor Montagu-Girmesu. Under the agreement, the Latvian airline was expected to invest 132 million euros to modernize its fleet and implement a business plan "Horizon 2021".

Investor's contribution was 52 million euro, thus resulting in a 20% holding in the company, while the state contribution - 80 million euros. Public investment is intended to ensure "airBaltic" borrowing the Treasury, and then the loan capitalization.

"AirBaltic" provides direct flights to about 60 destinations. The company's major shareholder is the Latvian state with 99.8% of the shares.

To sum it up, operations will increase from five daily E190, to four daily E190 and two daily 737.
This addition of the sixth daily flight puts GOT in the same league as the capitals, for KLM:

6 Daily: GOT/ARN/CPH/OSL

4 Daily: BGO/AAL
3 Daily: LPI/TRD/KRS

Finnair cancels 100 flights today March 10th (from 3pm - 7pm) due to a dispute between the Finnish Aviation Union and the service sector employer union Palta regarding labour agreements. It is the ground services that won't be available or very limited, Finnair is not a part of the labour dispute.

In my opinion these routes are great additions! A new airline and a new route for both airports. I have been anticipating this since OTP airport has been expanding rapidly, 18.3% in last year only. Next addition in the region could be Sofia airport but that will probably take a few years.

Swedish media are reporting that the center-left government there will go ahead with the new aviation tax:

http://www.affarsvarlden.se/bors-ekonom ... tt-6832800
http://www.di.se/nyheter/sa-mycket-dyra ... a-skatten/ (article behind paywall)
http://www.expressen.se/dinapengar/klar ... flygskatt/

It is planned to come into effect January 1st, 2018. As has probably been mentioned in this thread already (as the figures are unchanged from the original proposal), the levied tax will range from 80 SEK (per one-way trip, apparently) on short domestic/intra-EU flights to up to 430 SEK for flights outside the European Union, depending on flight distance. I haven't been able to find any clear indication whether the higher tax levels are also levied per one-way trip, i.e. if the maximum tax per roundtrip will be 860 SEK.

The current arrangement between the center-left government, which is many seats away from an actual majority in parliament, and the main opposition bloc (the center-right so called "Alliance for Sweden") stipulates that any piece of legislation that is part of the budget will pass parliament unchallenged. This means that unless the center-right decides to topple the government altogether (which they can do at any time, but has so far refused to do) the tax will pass parliament as part of the budget for next year.

Good days ahead for CPH, probably, which is an option for much of Southern Sweden. Certainly worse for GOT and ARN - and perhaps the death knell for many small rural airports with only domestic flights.

The tax has been proposed by the government, but I'm not sure how great their chances are on getting the parliament to pass it. The government (Social democrats + Green party) only has 138 out of 349 seats in the parliament. The Left party are likely to support the government, and the four Alliance parties (Moderate party, Centre party, Liberals and Christian Democrats) will probably oppose the tax. So it probably boils down to the Sweden democrats.


The Sweden Democrats are a fairly protectionistic party, right? Anti-EU, anti-immigration - but varying between the Moderates and Social Democrats regarding the rest of their political agenda? I doubt they'll vote for this tax. I hope it doesn't pass the parliament, I'd love to see those C-Series here in Scandinavia.

Just to clarify here: Since the government will include the new tax in the next budget proposal, the tax will pass parliament this autumn regardless of the stance of the Sweden Democrats. The reason is, as described above in my post, the deal between the minority center-left government and the center-right opposition that assures that the budget proposal of the government always will pass in its entirety.

Swedish aviation tax could speed up Norwegian plans on flying transatlantic from HEL. Norwegian has previously stated that they will probably add 787s to HEL in 2018. It now makes more sense to address the Finnish transatlantic market with nonstop services rather than routing pax through ARN which has been the most convenient and fastest transfer point so far. In addition Norwegian would be able to route some ARN passengers through HEL to places like LAX and OAK. Using HEL as a transfer point is shorter than using CPH if heading to California. See the figures below.

If Norwegian does enter the Finnish transatlantic market it would stimulate the market substantially. Finns visiting USA would increase as well as Americans vice versa. Finnair would have a really hard time competing.

ARN - OAK 329° (NW) 323° (NW) 4,649 nm

2 segment path:
ARN - HEL 076° (E) 070° (E) 216 nm
HEL - OAK 334° (NW) 325° (NW) 4,715 nm
4,931 nm (+6.1%)

2 segment path:
ARN - CPH 217° (SW) 211° (SW) 296 nm
CPH - OAK 325° (NW) 322° (NW) 4,759 nm
5,055 nm (+8.7%)

ARN - LAX 324° (NW) 318° (NW) 4,797 nm

2 segment path:
ARN - HEL 076° (E) 070° (E) 216 nm
HEL - LAX 330° (NW) 321° (NW) 4,879 nm
5,095 nm (+6.2%)

ARN - CPH 217° (SW) 211° (SW) 296 nm

Airport strike looms on Friday as union rejects compromise

Another strike at Finnish airports appears likely to go ahead on Friday. The Finnish Aviation Union (IAU) rejected the latest compromise proposal put forth by the national labour conciliator on Wednesday afternoon.

The next walkout by airport ground staff is scheduled for 3-7 pm on Friday, March 17.

Their employer, Airpro, says it would have accepted the proposal, as does its representative in the negotiations, the Service Sector Employers' group Palta. Airpro is owned by the state-owned Finavia, the former civil aviation authority.


Finavia says it is still too early to predict the impact of Friday's likely walkout. The previous such strike was last Friday, when Finnair cancelled about one third of its flights, mostly on domestic routes.

I surely hope the Alliance and the Sweden Democrats topples the socialist government - for more reasons than this tax. I've heard the leader of the Moderates is very unhappy lately. This tax might be the excuse they need to do something about the political situation.

If nothing happens, and this tax passes, what will be the consequences for SAS and Norwegian? Personally I think SAS will wait and see if the load factors change before making any long haul schedule changes, while Norwegian might be quicker to change their schedules.

Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos interviewed by Swedish business daily Dagens Industri: http://www.di.se/nyheter/norwegian-hota ... i-sverige/

He says, most importantly, that the aviation tax as implemented would "definitely" put a stop to Norwegian's expansion at ARN. He also predicts that airports in Sweden, specifically Skavsta, will go out of operation. Another fun part of the interview is where he offers dubious praise for SAS, in reference to their announced equity issuance: "They're a good competitor and I hope they get all the money they need. Any company with high costs and [high] prices is a good competitor". :lol:

In other news, the EU has reversed its earlier decision that relieved SAS from a 70 million euro anti-trust fine:

Kjos is a cheeky bastard for sure. :) Too bad for SAS that the EU reversed their decision. One of the main points of the EU is to provide a predictable and stable market economy, but going back and forth on decisions like this isn't good for anyone.

The future for Stockholm-Bromma (BMA) looks less bright after the Centre party in Stockholm voted yes to a proposal to close the airport. The Centre party has been one of Brommas biggest defenders but the party district in Stockholm now thinks it's time to focus on Arlanda. The proposal is not to close BMA at once, but to expand ARN, e.g. with a 4th runway, to be able to close BMA by 2038.

Is a fourth runway needed to increase capacity at ARN? Or are there weaker links in the capacity?

Finnair axes their MIA service between May 4th and September 29th this summer, due the shortage of crew and aircraft. They'll be back on October 3rd.

Croatia Airlines is starting new routes from Zagreb to ARN (3x weekly from May 19), OSL (2x weekly from May 21) and HEL (3x weekly from May 22) using CRJ-1000 leased from Air Nostrum. CPH where they already fly will also get the CRJ-1000

http://www.routesonline.com/news/38/air ... ns-in-s17/

At least for OSL, they will be the only CRJ-1000 operator


Seems like ZAG-OSL has been increased to 3x weekly, as a new Tuesday departure is now for sale

Regional Jet (same owner as Nordica) will take over the remaining ATR-72 flying from JetTime, as they stop flying for SAS early September after large losses on the contract. At most JetTime had 8 ATR-72-600 operating for SAS, but only 6 are left. The new contract is for 4 aircraft, so a reduction in total. All aircraft will be CPH based

http://www.sasgroup.net/en/regional-jet ... n-for-sas/

As a replacement for Jet Time, SAS has concluded an agreement with Regional Jet OÜ, which will be flying four ATR72-600 aircraft for SAS from August.


FlyBe will continue operate 5 ATR-72-600 for SAS from ARN

Ethiopian is having their first flight to/from OSL, and their ADD-ARN flight now is extended to OSL. ET-ATJ is currently between ARN and OSL, and will spend most of the day at OSL, before returning this afternoon

Real shame that ET won't have local rights on ARN-OSL-ARN. Is that something that can change in the future?
