Scandinavian Aviation 2013 - Part 1

Thu Jan 03, 2013 11:35 am

Happy new year, and time for a new thread.

Norwegian's next 737, LN-NGH, is scheduled to be delivered next week. With another (leased) aircraft, LN-NIC, to arrive in week four. Assembly of their first 787 should start towards the end of the month.


SAS is continuing with their MD-80 replacement. Two aircrafts, LN-RMO and OY-KGT, should be ferried to OSL for preparations before being sent to the US. After the summer season, only five MDs will be left, and in December 2013, the last three aircrafts will be parked.

So far only one A320 is in traffic, but the next one, OY-KAM, should start operating out of CPH mid-February. Next new 737-800, LN-NGC, is expected towards the end of January

I have a few flights booked with SAS in January that apparently are operated by A320s:

- 07JAN CPH-ARN SK 402
- 15JAN CPH-DUB SK 2537
- 22JAN CPH-AMS SK 2551

Does this mean they're all operated by the very same aircraft, if there is only 1 in traffic?

Three short months until SK starts their new service into SFO. This has been a long time in coming.

As far as I know: Yes

But I have no idea when the two ex-Spanair aircrafts that has been painted into SAS colours and currently being stored/in maintenance/modification will be ready for traffic, and neither does any of my sources.

Right now, SAS is parking the MDs (also think a few 737CL just was withdrawn from service) a lot faster than new aircrafts are coming in. However, this is not a problem as January/February is a quiet period and the utilization rate of the MDs/CLs are rather low. So instead of having many parked aircrafts this winter, they simply reduced this by timing the withdrawal and deliveries of new aircrafts.

However, the assumption of approximately one A320 delivered on average per month, shouldn't too far off. In addition to 1 737-800, in January, April, May and June, + one more in H2 2013. And probably two 737-700s sometimes during this year, with four more following in 2014, together with the two last -800s on order from GECAS. I've heard April for the A340 from Airbus/LAN. But as usual: All this is subject to change

From The Local's article:

Quote:
“Ryanair has a policy of not commenting on rumour or speculation."



Then:

Quote:
"There is no truth to these claims. Ryanair’s 737 aircraft operate [at different certified weights] in full compliance with Boeing’s flex-weight programme, as certified and approved by the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA),” spokesman Stephen Mcnamara said.

Dunno, that sounds like a comment to me...

Quote:
Norwegian Air loses bid for cheaper crews, for now

The Norwegian government has rejected a proposal that would allow Norway’s low-fare carrier Norwegian Air and other airlines to employ Asian residents on Norwegian-registed aircraft and compensate them with Asian-level pay and benefits, which generally are much lower than Norwegian levels. The decision is a blow to Norwegian Air’s plans for low-cost global expansion.

Any news regarding NORDIC AIR SWEDEN: http://www.airsweden.aero

According to their PR from November 23rd 2012(!!):
Air Sweden is starting a scheduled flight operation based in Umeå. In February next year, direct Flights will start between Umeå and London, Frankfurt, Paris. At the same time, Flights between Umeå and Arvidsjaur, Gällivare, Hemavan will start. This will provide all of northern Sweden with access to the large European cities through direct flights.

http://news.airsweden.aero/wordpress...12/11/PRESS-RELEASE-12-11-23-1.pdf

Is their first EMB-195 "on approach": http://news.airsweden.aero/wordpress...12/11/PRESS-RELEASE-12-11-23-1.pdf

So, wouldn't it be time to start ticket sales or to publish a timetable?

Thank God for that!

Of course BK is now whining in the media saying he wants to flag-out planes and operations to another European country (i.e Sweden) because he didnt get his way in this matter!

You know what: Go ahead! But change the name of your company to "Swedish" or "Romanian", and start painting your tails with Romanian heros instead!

As a professional pilot I am very concerned about the way things are headed here in Europe, employment wise. Thanks to FR and DY (that follow FRs lead) by lowering employment conditions, (ultimately lowering safety) by offering 1-3 year contracts through a 3rd party like Parc Aviation. With no job-security the pilots we depend on flying us safely from A to B will be much more reluctant calling in sick when their employment status basically is a "Boeing 737-800 pilot substitute". Who knows, declaring yourself unfit for flight one to many times, and guess what; Your contract wont get re-newed!!!

I would seriously never recommend anyone to become a professional pilot if your planning to work in Europe!
But at least we still have WF, L5, DK and BLX still offering pay and conditions that makes the risk of an pilot education worth it!! (Updating my SK application is no longer exactly on top of my to-do list   )

Next step: Cimber will take over the complete SAS CRJ fleet sometime soon?

They still don't have an operating license. This means that they are not allowed to sell tickets
or to start make advertising for tickets until they have the required licenses.

Despite that they have both advertised about tickets and also sold tickets.
So the Swedish Consumer Agency are not happy about this.

This article made me smile:  
http://www.vg.no/reise/artikkel.php?artid=10106948

It basically tells the unfortunate story about some Norwegian travellers going from OSL to CPH with SAS yesterday afternoon. (01/25/2013)

Summary:
1. Before departure from OSL, the wheelchocks gets removed before the pushback vehicle gets hooked up.

2. The plane rolls backwards, door gets caught in gate - flight gets cancelled.

3. Passengers board another plane with a different crew, they arrive at CPH a few hours late.

4. The brakes gets released at the arrival-gate before the ground crew gets to place the chocks -aircraft rolls back , and another door gets damaged.

I really wonder if SAS release the brakes on the gate. Some airlines do, a lot don't. It used to be standard practice to always release the brakes to let the brakes cool down, but is rarely necessary today.
British Airways decided to keep the brakes on at all times. This started about 5 years ago after a couple of incidents like this. Has worked well. Pilots set the brakes on arrival at the gate. They only release them under the command of the ground crew on the headset.

Qatar airways will continue operate a cargo B777 on Tuesdays on OSL-DOH in addition to their normal A330-200/300 rotation. By this time, it seems like it will operate from now and thoughout the summer.

It also looks like Emirates from GOT could be on the move as EK cargo are staffing up at OSL.

The airlines apply for slots to airport coordinators at the airports something that can be done all year around. Airport coordination is essential at airports that have reached max capacity at peak hours, typically 07:00 to 10:00 when most airlines want to fly in/out. OSL as an example is full between 07:30 and 09:30. Airport coordinators at the airports handles all the applications before announcing which airlines receive which slots two times a year (November and June). However the airlines do not have to confirm back to the airport coordinators if they actually will use the received slot(s) until about two months after the slots have been announced. During these two months the airlines needs to decide if they want to use received slots or not. That date has passed for S13 meaning that EK now has confirmed to airport coordination ARN if they will use the received slots for the S13 or not (slot hand back).

On the other hand I do not know if ARN is at max capacity at hours EK want to fly in/out. If ARN is far from max capacity when EK want to fly in/out EK can feel comfortable about availability and in this way the situation about EK at ARN S13 can be unknown even if EK has handed back received slots. But usually the airlines will confirm anyway if the will use received slots or not by the deadline. That deadline has passed for S13.

So to sum it up slot coordination at ARN most likely know by now if EK comes to ARN S13 or not.

OSL traffic figures January 2013: 1.523.297 +1,3%

Domestic: 750.660 -0,7%
Imternational: 772.628 +3.3%

Top 10:
Trondheim -1,6%
Bergen -5,7%
Stavanger +2,0%
Copenhagen +2,7%
Stockholm -1,0%
Tromsø +4,3%
London +2,4%
Bodø -9,9%
Las Palmas +20,2%
Ålesund -4,5%

Seems like Las Palmas has taken over Amsterdam's ninth place, and they must a fallen quite a bit as Ålesund on the tenth place in down 4,5%. It also seems like the growth in domestic traffic has come to a halt

It also looks like Emirates from GOT could be on the move as EK cargo are staffing up at OSL.

Don't know if they will move from GOT to OSL, but Emirates Skycargo will go online at CPH from the beginning of March. Operating DXB-CPH-ORD-CPH-DXB as EK9911/9912 with 777F.

Good news that both OSL and CPH can support a weekly cargo departure in addition to a daily rotation on their intercontinental services to the Gulf states. If I remember correctly, I think Turkish also have a weekly A310/330 to ARN.

CPH's Asian bound departure will operate on Mondays. That gives it zero interest for the NO fish market as there is no production on Saturdays and Sundays. I therefore can't see any link between adding staff at OSL because of new weekly departure from CPH. Also, CPH will be operated by the 777F, while GOT receives the 747F (3 weekly).

Emirates allready operated two daily truck departures from OSL feeding the GOT/CPH/FRA/HAM/AMS services with cargo.
it's a interesting sight on the road as it's some times operated by Trucks with Emirates livery.
I do not have the detail with me, but i think OSL-GOT operates on flight number EK43.. (Something) and EK9628.
The schedule is especially tuned into the GOT operations and their departures to DXB on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. CPH receives NO freight on day 2,3,4,5&6. Daily departures to FRA/HAM/AMS.

Another ting is that EK is now on the move for a whole new strategy for Scandinavia. Both ARN and OSL received delegations from Emirates this fall. Out of that the buzz said ARN from June and OSL from October. Whether or not that time frame is realistic, only EK knows, but for OSL and ARN certainly not a matter of "if" but "when".

Anybody know why SK995 CPH-PEK is not operating from 9/2-13/2 (both days inclusive)? AFAIK SK 995 normally operates daily. Is it maintenance?

There are also planned further changes from Scandinavia with Thai. I guess we will know in a few days now when they have started uploading their new schedule.

It took some time, but Thai has finally released a increase daily 777 to OSL S13 (mid summer only)
The new departures to operate on Tuesdays and Thursday's.

Bangkok – Oslo 18JUN13 – 19AUG13 Service increases from 5 weekly (Day x24) to Daily, Boeing 777-200ER operating.

Just like with the increase to CPH, it makes sense to increase during the peak summer holiday season. Most schools in both Norway and Denmark are on summer break from mid/end-June to early August.

SAS is trying to do the same with increased frequency to BKK from mid-December.
