New Airline To KRS

Tue Oct 16, 2012 6:52 am

Hi,
as a planespotter from Kristiansand in Norway I got really exited this morning when I heard on the news that a new airline will start to fly from Kristiansand next year. We can expect to see routes to London, Barcelona and Nice.

Anyone have any idea what airline? LCC?

So sorry...

The CEO of KRS can confirm that a new airline will start to fly to mayor European cities from the first half of 2013. He doesn't provide any more information than that.

While I like the idea and the concept, I still must say good luck, as they will need it. And I doubt this airline is still operational into 2014 (unfortunately)

LCC?

It wants a simple fare structure, nonstop flying to under served markets, and a good quality. At least the size and range for the Embraer 190 makes sense for the Norwegian marked. The 738 that DY uses are sometimes to large. Although DY has still offered so competitive prices that they have made up demand on the routes they fly.

It will be interesting to see how DY will respond to this. I guess other regional airports wants FlyNonstop to fly from their airports. But with DY awaiting 222 new Airbus A320 and 737, they would at least have the capacity to respond if FlyNonstop is successful.

Why? They have a very rich owner, and they will use Denim Air that already has an AOC.

That it does, the ERJ 190 makes a lot of sense for this. I'm sure they and Denim Air have done their figures and worked out that the operation is economically viable.

If the E190 comes with short-field performance enhancement, it will be perfect for KRS and longer routes.

The fleet page looks like it has been written with Google translate, though. The Norwegian text could be a little better, grammatically.

The ERJ 190 is an excellent short field performer, I can't see it being limited at all from KRS on routes under 2,000nm.

I noticed the language seems a bit off. But the people behind looks very Norwegian. How strange.

I hope this is true. I heard rumors that on longer missions the 736 has been payload limited from KRS.
