Transair Sweden - Back Again!

Wed Jul 31, 2002 6:43 am

I'm glad to say that an oldie have made it back. Transair Sweden is back - hopefully to stay.
Operating 4 A320 and one B757. Transair Sweden were once a pioneer in charter flights, operating B727 from Scandinavia around Europe and to US. Started 1951 and ended operations in 1981 after SAS bought the company and shut it down.
3 of the A320 are for the moment flying for Goodjet.
I wish them all of luck!

Wasn't Transair another Thomas Johansson operation?

That was Transjet.

Who exactly is this Thomas Johansson? I remember he was behind Air Ops (and Transwede) and so far hasn't really brought out a successful airline.

LJ, Yes, I'm sorry. They have been around for a little more than a month, but it's now they starting to expand theire fleet. In october they will start domestic fligths in Sweden for Goodjet so I guess that there will be more A320 around.

But is it the same Thomas Johanson who has been denied flying to/from Sweden, following his latest bankrupcy?
