Eventually SAS will have to decide what they will be replaced with..How old the CRJs? With the production line gone it will be hard to keep them for a very long time..And SAS will have to find sth under the 180pax category, qualifying for regional jet, assuming they retire all 737 and replace them with Neos..Isnt that the plan for the whole SH-fleet in all 3 countries? They dont have many options...either Ejets or A220s
Cityjet operate some CRJ-900s on Norwegian routes on behalf of SAS. One OSL-SVG round trip on Saturdays, SVG-TRD, SVG-ABZ, AAL-OSL and BLL-OSL, although they are operated by aircraft and crews based at CPH. There are no plans to retire the CRJs anytime soon. Most of them are from 2016-18, with a few of them being from 2009 (EI-GE*).
All CRJs from ARN are operated by Nordica/Xfly. Those were built between 2009 and 2012.
SAS actually own a company listed as "Airstair 4 A/S" in Denmark, which is planned to be a new "in-house" airline operating a fleet of mid-size jets, such as the A220 or E2s, however there have been rumours that due to the engine problems on the A220s, there won't be an order anytime soon.
