This isnt really any worse than Wizzair or Easyjet departing at godawful 0550 which means you got to be at the airport at least at 0350 so you virtually dont sleep at night..I tend to avoid these flights now matter how cheap
Flying is breathing..no planes no life..

I understand but here it's odd because Belgrade is not a holiday destination (like Greece or Cyprus) and they face competition from both Wizz Air and Air Serbia on the market. Wizz flies out at 06.10 while Air Serbia has departures at 06.35 and 17.00.

So they are not after connecting passengers here? Offering late night departure with a morning arrival?

The simlilarity is that it's a destination with nothing but leisure travellers. What ever business travellers and connecting passengers there are, use JU. D8/DY mainly compete with W6 on routes like that, the only thing that count is the price for that segment of passengers.

Finland and China have agreed to increase the number of allowed weekly flights to Beijing from current 7 to 14 weekly. This is great news! Under the agreement, also a route to Central and Western China can be opened from Finland.

New operators of the Swedish PSO-routes have been announced. The 11 routes have been merged into 7 routes, some with stopovers. Starting in October this year, the routes will be flown by:

Amapola Flyg:
    Hemavan – Kramfors – Arlanda
    Vilhelmina – Lycksele – Arlanda
    Torsby – Hagfors – Arlanda

Jonair:
    Pajala – Luleå
    Östersund – Umeå
    Sveg – Arlanda

Regional Jet:
    Gällivare – Arvidsjaur – Arlanda

Regional Jet will use a CRJ 700, Amapola will use Fokker 50s and Jonair will use Beechcraft King Air 200/1900.

Nope. Just regular Nordic weather.

It's a classic low-cost thing. Most passengers travelling for leisure only cares about the price of the ticket, not the schedule, type of aircraft, which airport etc.
They do a similar thing here at CPH, where they have routes to some of the Greek Islands and holiday destinations in Northern Africa. They depart CPH between 9pm-11pm and arrive back between 3-6am


Those holiday charters going to the Mediterranean and North African holiday spots are a bit different. They are more about getting maximum utilization of the aircraft. They normally depart Scandinavia early morning, returning late afternoon or early evening. That just gives them enough time to do another circuit to the Med and back before the morning shift begins. Some former colleagues said they preferred these because they get a "free" day at the destination - wouldn't work for me, I'd be dead in the bed...

It isn't just Belgrade that is a bit weird, it is most of that region. Look at Bucharest at night. That airport is busy with departures and arrivals at 2 or 3 in the morning! LOT, Aeroflot, Tarom, Turkish Airlines and Air Serbia are just as happy playing with these schedules as Wizz Air is. Sofia and Belgrade have a bit of the same. Part of it probably comes down to mismatched time-zones and trying to depart or arrive coordinated with late evening or early morning departure banks.
My guess is that the timezone difference also prevents them from putting the crew in the hotel for a minimum rest night, so returning the plane immediately makes more sense to these airlines than having 2 crews in a hotel.

Since midsummer there are no regular flights at Jönköping any more, but they will return in August. With no competition from BRA, Air Leap will try the Jönköping-Stockholm route again. The route will be moved from BMA to ARN and downsized from a Fokker 50 to a Saab 340.

Widerøe has won 6 out of 7 PSO routes in Southern Norway from April 1 2020. The 7th, OSL-RRS was won by Air Leap. So except Air Leap taking over the 2x daily (on weekdays) OSL-RRS, Widerøe will continue operating the PSO routes from OSL and BGO going forwards, just like today

From CPH it's a reduction of long haul number of legs of about 60-70 %, so it's a very significant reduction.
Norwegians capacity is reduced by 42% from ARN and about 32% from OSL.

EDIT: I'm refering only to flights with 787's

Yeah, it seems like ARN-FLL, OSL-FLL and OSL-JFK are the only U.S routes to remain out of the Nordics. Do you know why they cut all routes from CPH?
ATL, AYT, FRA, FUE, HEL, JFK, LCA, LHR, MUC | AY, BA, DL, FH, LH, LO | A320, A321, A333, 752, 764, 772, 788

So where will Norwegians 787 be deployed during that season? Too expensive plane to keep on the ground.

This is still unknown. From what I can see in the timetables they will have a lot of unused capacity during W19. I agree that the 787's won't stay on the ground, but as of right now, Norwegian haven't published where they are deploying the leftover capacity.

Thank you for keep us updated on delivery and retirements! Much appreciated. SAS has a very good line up now, with airplanes. Much simpler, than the good old days.

On a completely different topic, has SAS said who will take over flying of the ATR routes that are currently flown by FlyBe?

Joni Sundelin: The planned route launch from Chengdu to Helsinki has delayed but may happen in 2019. Sichuan Airlines plans to operate 2x weekly flights on CTU-HEL-CPH route using 5th freedom rights. The routing is the same from CPH (via HEL).

Juneyao Air's inaugural flight carried 209 passengers meaning the load factor of 64.5% (worse than I expected) so hopefully, the flights will be more crowded in the future.

It's low but one needs to remember the codeshare with AY has been in effect for only six or so weeks. If anything I'm surprised they even had that many pax.

Are they changing the current CPH non-stop into a 1-stop via HEL? It's been non-stop CTU-CPH since launch.

Does anyone know when SK's OSL base will receive its first A320NEO? Those awful 737s can't be gone soon enough, especially the older ones which feel tired and worn. With CPH and ARN both receiving new aircraft, it does feel like the Norwegian market is being neglected somewhat by SAS management.

It will be good to see the NEO operating domestic flights in Norway - whenever that will be.

Not untill all 737s are gone from ARN, in order to only have one base with both 737 og A320 at one time. Nothing official, but probably not until towards the end of 2020

And the 737's based in OSL/Norway is larger versions, than the once based in ARN. 737-600s were based at ARN and will be fully phased out during 2019.

There is a mix between -600, -700 and -800 on both bases, although for a little while, most of the few remaining -600s has been operated out of ARN

YLE also published an article about Juneyao's new service to Helsinki. According to the article, the chairman of Juneyao Air, Wang Junjin has said HEL will become an important "hub" for them. The airline also said they estimate to carry up to 200,000 passengers annually on the route, which corresponds to Finnair's pax volume on HEL–PVG route. Thus, the total pax volume on the route could increase to nearly 400,000 if they reach the estimate. However, in order to reach the estimate of 200,000 passengers, they cannot fly to HEL only 3x weekly during winter and 4x weekly during summer (as the booking system shows for S20). At least 7 weekly frequencies are, would I say, inevitable in this case. So, there might be something in the works, probably an extension of PVG–HEL service to MAN as rumored.

The PLF on inaugural flight wasn't very impressive but as Nami said the codeshare with AY has been in effect for only a few weeks and HO is pretty unknown airline among the Europeans. Let's see how the pax volume develops...

Are they changing the current CPH non-stop into a 1-stop via HEL? It's been non-stop CTU-CPH since launch.

Yes, it will be changed into a 1-stop via HEL.
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.

Thank you for keep us updated on delivery and retirements! Much appreciated. SAS has a very good line up now, with airplanes. Much simpler, than the good old days.


Much simpler, and probably a lot better. But I have to admit that a part of me misses the fleet diversity they had 10 years ago…

Does anyone know when SK's OSL base will receive its first A320NEO? Those awful 737s can't be gone soon enough, especially the older ones which feel tired and worn. With CPH and ARN both receiving new aircraft, it does feel like the Norwegian market is being neglected somewhat by SAS management.

It will be good to see the NEO operating domestic flights in Norway - whenever that will be.


Not untill all 737s are gone from ARN, in order to only have one base with both 737 og A320 at one time. Nothing official, but probably not until towards the end of 2020


It is probably easier to transfer one base at a time from 737 to A320. But the older 737s at OSL that feel tired and worn will probably be replaced by less tired and worn 737s from ARN in the meantime.

YLE News wrote on Thursday that BT is seeking for new destinations in Finland. I could see them serving VAA, and maybe OUL either nonstop or via TKU or TMP.

Does anyone know how both SAS and Finnair are doing on their respective routes to LAX?

SAS has been flying to LAX a few years now, but noticed the flight is not daily this summer. I believe last summer it was served daily. LAX is the remaining route out of ARN besides the bog standard EWR/ORD, so maybe a candidate to be moved to CPH as HKG has been? Anyway, a couple of days ago I flew back home to LAX with SAS in business. It is the second time I have flown LAX-ARN-LAX in business, and I love their product. SAS has got it right this time, and their J class is one of the better ones when flying TATL.

Finnair launched HEL-LAX as 3x weekly year round, while SFO still is seasonal. They must have much more confidence in LAX working out for them. Have been trying to get 2 award seats in J, but seems impossible as all flights with availability only have 1 seat released for miles.
