Some more details about Flyr is emerging

- Initial start with 5-8 737-800, acquired or leased at low prices from Q2 2021 (I assume probably towards the end of the quarter)
- 7 domestic Norwegian destinations and 5 international. I've seen CPH mentioned, besides that I would assume popular holiday destinations around the Mediterranean i.e AGP, NCE, PMI, ALC or similar
- Trying to raise 600 MNOK in capital


Whats the source?

It's beginning to look like the short haul Norway based part of Norwegian might survive for summer 2021. Even if Wizz drop their (most likely loss making) Norway domestic flying... is there room for Flyr, particularly if borders are more restrictive than in 2019 (PCR tests and quarantine may still exist in some form) and demand for cross-border flying in Europe is well below 2019 ?

I'm aware that some domestic very-short-haul flying in Norway has remained healthy... but I'm assuming Flyr is not planning to compete with Wideroe on PSO routes

Who knows? If they can get a reputation of a more stable airline compared to Norwegian that might give them a few more customers. And I'm not sure how popular Wizz air will be, not having Scandinavian speaking cabin crew on domestic routes will probably cause many to prefer Flyr. On the other hand, Wizz air's strategy might just be to hit Norwegian where it hurts them the most and drive them out of business at any cost?

Norwegian domestic services will be interesting to follow in 2021. I belive we have to go back to 1998/1999 when Color Air was around to see as many carriers competing as much as is planned now. I also believe Wizz is in Norway to put the final nail in the Norwegian Coffin. Although the latter have proven to have more than nine lives.

Domestically, Norwegian has the reputation as a stable and reliable airline, and their in-time and cancellation statistics have more or less matched SAS', and sometimes exceeded.

Wizz on the other hand, has had a rather terrible start on their Norwegian operations, with quite a few diversions

I'd guess that in the initial comment "stable" referred more towards financial rather than operational stability. It's a bit of a gamble to buy flights on a carrier that is constantly on the brink of bankruptcy, no matter whether they fly on time or not...

And on another note: thanks for everyone on the earlier discussion on Swedish airports & their connections. I learned a lot!

Correct, their reputation in Sweden has been that they have mostly been on time. But I know at least a couple of persons who prefer SAS since they are more financially stable.

Just like every part of the big expansion they announced after the start of the pandemic. Then they blame the virus (and the travel limitations - even on flights which are not limited) for poor loads and cancellations. What on earth did they expect?

Does anyone know if Norwegian flights on sale for S21 are somewhere close to that plan they recently presented for operating with 50 B737s this year?

No long haul flights on sale at all, so I reckon those on sale may look like what they expect to actually operate...

I was recently doing a little road trip in Sweden* (thanks to which I can now place e.g. THN, HAD, KID & RNB on the map), and got wondering a bit more about flights to the medium-sized towns of Sweden somewhat close to Stockholm, that have decent airports, but not really proper service (such as KSD, GVX, NRK, JKG, ORB, BLE).

These airports appear to be too close to Stockholm to sustain service there, but could they still hold enough demand to sustain service elsewhere?
...
(*Yes, naughty, I know... But when your longest contacts in the country are the hotel receptionists, the risks are most likely significantly lower than when hanging at the local neighborhood pubs in Helsinki (which would have been the most likely alternative pastime).)


I wrote a bit about the flights from such airports to STO, not specifically addressing your question about other destinations than STO, if you care to read:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1411733&p=21143623&hilit=klr#p21143623

I know AJR (Arvidsjaur, not very close to STO to say the least, but still a very small municipality and catchment area) has flights to Germany from time to time. That is because of the vast car testing operations in the area, mainly in wintertime. Lots of car manufacturers have major testing facilities there, for instance Mercedes. They haul people from Germany and the return flight is then offered to the public. Other charters are (were) also available from time to time. Seeing a 737 at AJR was quite unexpected for me the first time I saw it as I arrived in an almost empty Saab 340 using the regular service (NextJet at the time I think).

Others have given you some insight on airports closer to STO and I think lots of those will close shortly, just as VST (Västerås) is. ESK (Eskilstuna) was planning to open some sort of regular flights, but I can't imagine that will happen now. Nyköping (NYO, "Stockholm" Skavsta) is the exception as they have lots of established routes all over Europe (and beyond?) along with lots of freight going through that airport. Swedish Coastguards use NYO as their base for their three Q300's and some smaller freight companies use NYO as well. I guess NYO is the cheaper and less busy alternative to ARN. Long gone are the days when we sat in the sun on runway 27 (now renamed 26) waiting for our turn to get in the glider :)

If you ever do another roadtrip to Sweden, I can give you some tips on where to spot in NYO and HAD!

That’s much more interesting than Wizz domestic attempt, and I think that this is really bad news for Norwegian.

I think DY has been flying to LCA for years now, they even attempted HEL-LCA at some point. Their flights have been quite full over the years since Cyprus is extremely popular among Nordic holidaymakers. I wonder if LCA will be operated by a Cypriot based crew.

SAS and Apollo is extending their deal, so SAS will be flying for them the next 3 years, with an options for further 2. The deal is worth SEK 3,4 Billions the first 3 years. Previously this deal has been given on an annual basis, but with a three year deal, it should be easier to planning long term for both parties

For a fairly small market, Norway certainly has had a very interesting aviation landscape over the years.

There are certainly some brave investors out there hoping to exploit some market conditions that allow them to squeeze into.

So I guess it will be only a matter of time, to see a press release from WizzAir responding... ALC will be a bloodbath SAS, FLYR, WizzAir, Norwegian and Ryanair to TRF! Despite the COVID19 virus, this year will be a hot, hot summer in Norway!

Isn't that too much capacity? What is Flyr betting on? Wouldn't it be better to just focus on sunny destinations.

Outside peak summer, maybe June to August, is there enough demand from Norway to Mediterranean beaches to sustain another airline ? Perhaps better to have a mix of destination types (city, VFR, beach, etc) to reduce the risk, particularly with a highly seasonal market ?

Don't forget the ferry.

Much of the SAS traffic will be transferring passengers heading to and from the main SAS hub in Copenhagen. Ditto for some of the Norwegian traffic in the opposite direction, but that will drop off with the long haul division being chopped. It allows both airlines to position aircraft and crew between the hubs.

But lets not forget that Denmark and Norway have close ties. Lots of travellers between the two countries. Sweden even has long term plans to connect Copenhagen and Oslo with a high speed rail link through Sweden at some point. I don't think Flyr will have problems filling its aircraft. It would also serve to introduce the brand in Denmark, when or if they open a base there.

SAS used to fly to many smaller swedish airports from CPH, with Fokker 27s, 28's, 50s and SAAB 2000s until the opening of the Øresund Bridge. After that several others have tried, but failed, Cimber, BMI Regional, Estonian Air, LOT/Nordica, Skyways and Nextjet to name a few. Even SAS tried a few years ago, i can't remember where too. The problem is that most of Sweden south of Gothenburg have direct fast trains to CPH, making it very tough for airlines to compete. North of Gothenburg, the cities are simply to small to have sustain a service.


As for the cities north of Gothenburg, they are typically not too small for that (I grew up in Västerås - VST - which is Sweden's fifth largest city with several large employers needing international connections). Twenty years ago the airport had up to 7 daily flights with SAS to CPH, some of them on 737s. LPI, NRK, BLE were among cities with frequent connections to CPH as well. What killed the traffic to these cities was to a large degree the improved road (in the case of e.g. VST) and rail (for e.g. BLE) connections with smooth transfer opportunities at Arlanda. The flight shaming in Sweden has not helped either...

Interesting, thank you. I suppose they will have to start with double daily flights (at least) in order to remain competitive compared to what their competition is offering.

OSL-CPH has probably a higher share of leisure traffic, than ARN. OSL-ARN has always been a difficult route for any other than SAS, as they have a firm grip on the business traffic here. Norwegian has done OK, but not more. HEL is not a large destination from Oslo, and in mainly a business destination.

They have mentioned ARN is phase 2 (or 3), but CPH is a much easier destination for a start up

Not sure if this has already been posted, but Norwegian has suspended Norwegian Reward, its FF program. No more accruals or redemptions

Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reports (in Swedish) that the procurement process for the new Swedish Air Ambulance will be restarted.

OSM Aviation Crew won the procurement, but competitor CAE Parc aviation appealed the decision at the administrative court and the award is now withdrawn. CAE Parc claimed that OSM Aviation Crew had no employees between 2017 and 2019.

Svenskt Ambulansflyg (KSA) will own six Pilatus PC-24 and contract the operations out.

Flyr, Norwegian new start-up airline, plans to launch flights with 2 B737-800 at the beginning of June.

Initially flying to 7 destinations in Norway, plus Copenhaguen, Nice, Malaga, Alicante and Barcelona.

Always happy to see new airlines and they are targeting destinations with good potential for pax and yields.
But did they share any information on what will make them different from other LCCs like Ryanair, Wizz or Norwegian?
I'm assuming these are key routes where they will still compete against DY?

I am not surprised about Cyprus as they announced the opening of borders starting from March 1st. They will introduce the traffic light system so it remains to be seen what restrictions they will have for Sweden and Denmark.
