The Airports Authority of India reported that Finnair has enquired about the possibility of starting flights to Chennai, India. According to AAI, "the representatives from Finnair were at the airport and held discussions about starting the service."

Could we see more flights to India in the near future, not only to Chennai but maybe also to Mumbai and Bangalore?

Not too sure whether I have seen it before or whether it actually ever happened before, but Norwegian will fly the Rosenborg BK football team from Trondheim to Leipzig tomorrow, for the Europa League match against RB Leipzig, using one of their B737-800s:

Seemingly it has something to do with Norwegian Air Sweden. Weird is that they complain about the aviation tax in Sweden and cut routes from ARN but they're still planning to launch a number of Asian flights from Sweden (which they cannot do because of Russia).

I am not sure how different the story can be for Norwegian in order to gain further traffic rights towards Asia with this Swedish AOC. Weird...

Traffic between DEL and the Nordics in Q1-Q3/2018:
HEL: 85,660 (+26.8%)
CPH: 52,796 (+2741.6%)*
ARN: 46,720 (+624.6%)*

Total: 185,176 (+144.1%)

*Note that CPH and ARN were not served in Q1 and Q2 last year and therefore the growth percent is so insane.

For the whole year, the numbers may look like this:
HEL: 120,000+
CPH: 70,000±
ARN: 60,000±
KEF: not much

for sure the 30 million will be passed, this year else December have to be really slow.
Find the growth in OSL and CPH ok but is it the passenger tax that is start hitting ARN as they seems to loosing little pace ?

A new budget proposition for 2019 here in Sweden just passed, looks like the passenger tax is being dropped, might boost the flying a bit next year.

Today (Wednesday) we at GOT welcomed the very first flight with Qatar Airways and its 787-8 Dreamliner!
This was a huge deal for the airport and the Gothenburg region so there was a great event at the airport during the afternoon.
Media was invited among others. I myself, was very happy to be present aswell for the big day.

The new Gothenburg-Doha route will be served 5x weekly.
The first QR178 today departed with an impressive 242 passengers (95% LF) and some 18 tonnes of cargo onboard.
We expect this flight to become daily shortly...

It will be interesting to see how this affects the passenger growth in ARN and Sweden, Norwegians timing for a new Swedish AOC is really good.

If Sweden gets rid of their tax, this only leave Norway with aviation tax.

Great! Unfortunately, I guess the total passenger amount for this year will be around 20.8 million. We need more passengers in order to reach the 21 million this year :lol:

Yep :) This year has been good also when it comes to route statistics (especially intercontinental routes). HEL-NRT will see over 400,000 passengers this year (280,000 in 2016) and several routes seem to reach 200,000 passengers while back in 2016, NRT and BKK were the only intercontinental routes with over 200,000 passengers :)

That's over a 1,000 on three daily flights, quite impressive. I wonder if JAL would also be interested in adding second daily flight.

Hopefully. They could also replace the Dreamliner with a larger aircraft such as Boeing 777 or A350 in the future.
As a side note, if I calculated correctly, the capacity on HEL-NRT route will be around 475,000 seats this year and with the load factor of 90%, it would mean approximately 430,000 passengers (+23%).

Finland signed new liberal air traffic agreements with South Africa and Rwanda. Finland previously had an agreement with South Africa that allowed only code-sharing, but it now allows direct flights from any city in Finland to any city in South Africa. The negotiations also proceeded "significantly" with Australia, South Korea and Tanzania. Finland will continue the negotiations with Australia and Tanzania in December 2019 and with South Korea in April 2019.

The "madness" doesn't stop there. Next summer KEF-CPH is likely to be a battlefield. Icelandair with their 5x daily (4x752 & 1x753), WOW 1x daily (A320/A321) and SAS 10x weekly (A320/A32N/A321). That's 52 weekly flights.
Also yes, CPH is the airport with the highesy frequency for Icelandair

Icelandair will add a new 5th daily flight on KEF-CPH for the peak summer season of 2019.

Schedule (01JUN19-31AUG19 KEF depature, 02JUN19-01SEP19 CPH departure):

FI202 KEF-CPH 18:55-23:55
FI201 CPH-KEF 07:30-08:40


Flights will be operated by a Boeing 757-200 aircraft and are available for booking on Icelandairs website


I should imagine then, that is two night stopping crews laying over in CPH..this arriving crew will take out a latter departure.
OR
On the other hand, they might be booking an 15+ hour duty day , with a long layover in CPH.

Norwegian launches new routes from HEL in April 2019:

Helsinki (HEL) – Pisa (PSA), 1x weekly as of 6 April 2019

Helsinki (HEL) – Tivat (TIV), 1x weekly as of 16 April 2019

I assume both routes are seasonal.

Lentoposti
ATL, AYT, FRA, FUE, HEL, JFK, LCA, LHR, MUC | AY, BA, DL, FH, LH, LO | A320, A321, A333, 752, 764, 772, 788
The word "Quawer" means nothing but it looks great.

Yep :) This year has been good also when it comes to route statistics (especially intercontinental routes). HEL-NRT will see over 400,000 passengers this year (280,000 in 2016) and several routes seem to reach 200,000 passengers while back in 2016, NRT and BKK were the only intercontinental routes with over 200,000 passengers :)


That's over a 1,000 on three daily flights, quite impressive. I wonder if JAL would also be interested in adding second daily flight.

Hopefully. They could also replace the Dreamliner with a larger aircraft such as Boeing 777 or A350 in the future.
As a side note, if I calculated correctly, the capacity on HEL-NRT route will be around 475,000 seats this year and with the load factor of 90%, it would mean approximately 430,000 passengers (+23%).


Is it three widebodies (two 350 and one 787) flying together in a triangular formation from HEL to NRT?

What about (wet)leasing a couple of A380? Not very expensive?

The A350 has better cargo hauling potential. But in passenger numbers A380 would make sense. JL also could put the B773 on the route.

Is Wizzair moving flights from Torp to OSL slowly or just duplicating? Because i've seen BUD,GDN,KRK,LTN to OSL..Isnt the airport too expensive for an airline like Wizzair?

LWM broke down before it's first commercial flight to LHR. Then on the next day they planned to take her to Tokyo but she wouldn't go there either.

So far BUD and GDN is duplicated, while KRK and LTN never has operated to TRF

So far Wizz has not reduced at TRF, so they are instead growing in the Norwegian market

From other thread:

Per CZ’s Weibo account (https://m.weibo.cn/1647687670/4318958566370719), China Southern and Finnair have signed strategic partnerships and a codeshare deal in Guangzhou today on Dec 19th. Pending governmental approval, the cooperation via bilateral route network realigning would allow CZ customers to connect onto 15 European cities via HEL, while giving AY customers connection options to 8 Chinese cities and 8 Oceanic cities via CAN


Wonderful news! (and actually a bit expected). With the new partnership, we might see more flights from CZ, in addition to possible CAN-HEL service.

Oh my does it have warranty still on... I bet Airbus is paying the fixing.

5 times daily is a lot of seats for KEF-CPH! Is CPH the airport with highest frequency for Icelandair?


The "madness" doesn't stop there. Next summer KEF-CPH is likely to be a battlefield. Icelandair with their 5x daily (4x752 & 1x753), WOW 1x daily (A320/A321) and SAS 10x weekly (A320/A32N/A321). That's 52 weekly flights.
Also yes, CPH is the airport with the highesy frequency for Icelandair


For obvious reasons, Icelandair, and at a much different level, but also WOW are the ones who are going to put on offer everything they can in order to defend this route as "theirs". If I was in charge of Icelandair I wouldn't doubt to even deploy the 6th frequency. Key market for them.

With this leaving the fleet, and a A320neo delivered (to SAS Ireland although) last week, SAS now has more Airbus than Boeing in their fleet
