LH CityLine In Kiruna And Ostersund Last Night?

Sun Jul 08, 2001 11:13 pm


Hi everybody,

I noticed at FRA´s arrival board that there arrived two Lufthansa CityLine flights last night from Kiruna and Ostersund, respectively, between 0400 and 0500 - any idea what that might have been?

Thanks,

afaik, somewhere in the north of sweden there is a facility where new cars can be tested in extreme conditions, like snow, ice.
if my memory serves right, there have been several chartered flights by Volkswagen to somewhere in sweden, and some of these flights originated in braunschweig (!!!).
however, i don´t know if that was to kiruna.
i believe that´s arvidsjaur, which is also in the north of sweden, because i remember my father once flying there and they were given t-shirts by the arvidsjaur airport company because the airport authorities were so happy to have a bigger airline at the airport.

in addition, in summer there are sometimes charter flights to northern european regions, although i don´t know if that´s the case.
CLH sometimes conducts charter flights on behalf of condor or german tour operators, currently to knock and shannon in ireland, and to brindisi and pescara in italy. could be a something similar.

best wishes
