SCR (Scandinavian Mountains Airport) is now open. At 9.35 yesterday, flight TF1621 from Malmö, a fully booked Avro RJ100, became the first flight to land at the airport. A short video clip from the first arrival (in Swedish): https://www.svt.se/nyheter/lokalt/dalar ... antastiskt

SAS is communicating to pax that flights over the next few weeks between London Heathrow and SCR / Scandinavian Mountains / Salen-Trysil airport will instead divert to Oslo with a bus transfer between Oslo and SCR due to "infrastructure problems" at SCR airport.

Anyone know what "infrastructure problems" really means ? No immigration facility ? More pax in the terminal at peak times than capacity ? Something else ?
Are these "infrastructure problems" easy to fix in a couple of weeks or have people discovered some huge issue that they forgot about earlier ?

The airport is not ready to accept non-Schengen flights yet, there is still a bit of paperwork to be done in order to fix that.

According to SAS's booking system, SAS will upgrade it's CPH-FLR service to A320Neo replacing A319s in S20. As far as I'm aware it'll be the first (regularly) scheduled A320Neo service to FLR

Will it have weight restrictions? From what I remember FLR has a short runway.

Not just short runway, but also a mountain right at the end. Approach climb gradient considerations will be relevant too.

I'm not sure it'll have a weight restriction, but it's very likely. Not only is the runway short, and as VSMUT said with a mountain at one end, it's also narrower than standard. So it's definitely a challenging airport.
SAS have a pretty good idea of the A320Neo's capabilities on short runways as they've operated them to FAE for a while

Does NEO have stronger engines? Maybe that's a key factor which will enable them to have a steeper climb. Also the flight itself is not long and there is probably no cargo so they are not going to be flying out heavy.

You won't be climbing over that mountain. It is a one-direction airport, landings to the northwest, takeoffs to the southeast. They will have to contend with tailwinds. There is an elevated railway and motorway just off the south-eastern end of the runway that further complicates things. For the missed approach, I believe it is a sharp left turn before the mountain. They will need enough fuel to divert to Pisa too, which will happen often enough.

They do indeed have stronger engines. If I'm not mistaken SAS also have the strongest LEAP-1A engine available so they can serve FAE and some of the smaller Swedish and Norwegian airports with the Neo.

Yes, departures are load restricted... The up gauge to NEO is because the 319’s are being used in sweden as smaller 737s has been phased out

SAS' CPH-SFO changes schedule from March 30th 2020. New schedule is:
SK935 CPH-SFO 12:00-14:20
SK936 SFO-CPH 16:10-11:50+1

It's likely a change to optimize the use of their LH-fleet after the introduction of CPH-LAX and CPH-HND
