Nordic Aviation 2021

Wed Dec 30, 2020 7:22 am

As it is end of a horrible year, let's close search.php?keywords=nordic+aviation&fid%5B0%5D=3 and start a 2021 thread! I wish you all a better new year, aviation and health wice.

Some good news are that AY will double their daily flights by the end of April and BT will bring TKU and TMP back in March.

Worth scrolling through pages 4-7 of that thread, when you can cast your mind back to a much simpler time, when Covid route and airport closures seemed so surprising.

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? Could there be potential with e.g. SK flying ATRs to CPH to connect with the world? I recall that bmi Regional had some flights in Sweden (to FRA?), and KL flies to LPI, that is a pretty similar town compared to the other ones? Also, SK does (usually) fly from ARN to TKU, TMP & VAA, which to me appear to be pretty similar cases?

This has probably been discussed before, but I admit that I haven't paid so close attention to it previously.

(*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).)

As far as I know, neither THN / Trollhattan nor KID / Kristianstad has had passenger flights with a commercial airline since BRA ceased flying in April 2020. Did you fly your own aircraft, or did you have some other way to claim these 2 airports ?

Karlstad + Jonkoping - used to have flights to Frankfurt with bmi regional - they ceased in February 2019
Gavle - the train to Arlanda takes just 1h05 - there would need to be a very good reason to restart commercial passenger flights
Norrkoping - used to have flights to Munich with bmi regional - they ceased in February 2019
Kristianstad - train to Copenhagen airport takes just 1h30. Maybe they will get flights to Stockholm again, but the route always seems to struggle. Swedavia possibly allowing Bromma to close will not help a KID-STO route
Orebro - used to have a PSO route to Copenhagen until February 2019
Borlange - the routes to Gothenburg and Malmo closed in 2018
Vasteras - due to close by 31-Dec-2022

If anything is going to happen around opening of thin routes to provincial cities in Sweden, I imagine Air Leap or Amapola (or maybe BRA if it revives) will be a strong candidate to be doing the flying and there would probably need to be some PSO money involved - I don't think SAS are going to be particularly interested

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.

The SAS website shows that from 17-Dec-2021, the 2x weekly (Mon + Sat) winter seasonal route between London Stansted and Lulea will resume. No idea if this will really happen, or if someone forgot to change some setting in the SAS system when cancelling all flights for the current winter season

Looks like KL has restarted all four daily flights to HEL, after a long period of only 1-2 daily. How about other Nordic routes?

KLM is currently operating:

- AMS - ARN 6x daily
- AMS - OSL 5x daily
- AMS - CPH 4x daily
- AMS - HEL 4x daily
- AMS - BGO 3x daily
- AMS - GOT 3x daily
- AMS - BLL 2x daily
- AMS - AAL 2x daily
- AMS - SVG 2x daily
- AMS - TRD 2x daily
- AMS - LPI 1x daily

But this will only be to handle peak demand after the holiday season, frequencies willl drop quickly when demand drops again.

AMS has been Europe's busiest airport in COVID times, an indication that classic hub-and-spoke operations are the most sustainable in these difficult times.

Airport PAX November 2020:

- AMS 900.434 passengers
- LHR 746.954
- FRA 656.420
- CDG 632.451

BMI regional flew FRA-JKG-KSD before they seized operations. SAS also flew CPH-LPI with ATRs until a few years ago. Some of these airports also have a couple of charter flights to various Mediterranean beach destinations. But two important things changed the situation around 20 years ago. The Öresund bridge meant that many towns in southern Sweden got direct trains to CPH. And Arlandabanan meant that many towns gained direct trains to ARN. JKG and THN also struggle since they are fairly close to GOT. Maybe we'll see KLM trying some of them, but to be honest I don't think the future is bright with improved rail services and increased climate awareness.

The big difference regarding SAS' routes to smaller Finnish towns is that the Baltic sea is in the way so the alternative in most cases is an overnight ferry.

Didn't also several of these regional airport to hub-flights also have a significant financial contribution from either the airport or the local municipalities (or both)

Yes, the route mentioned recieved financial support from both Karlstad and Jönköping.

- 05 Jan 2021 CPH 11.37 - BHX 12.07 SK9001 A333 LN-RKM
- 05 Jan 2021 BHX 13.37 - BRU 15.31 SK7002 A333 LN-RKM

Brexit irony here, SAS can use its EU Freedoms to operate between the UK and a third country (Belgium), while UK carriers can no longer do this in Europe.

No and no. But I guess that LOT, like almost every airline at the moment, is desperate for anything that can generate a bit of money.

https://www.err.ee/1231894/aasa-hinnang ... ama-ei-pea

The transfer of full ownership of the airline X-fly Nordica did not cost the Estonian taxpayer anything, confirmed Minister of Economic Affairs Taavi Aas, who believes that this year the state will not have to invest extra money in Nordica. Whether the former co-owner of X-fly, LOT, paid anything to Nordica with the transaction, which was born at the end of last year, will not be disclosed.

No, Eivind should not be a CEO candidate. I think it is most likely Simon Pauck Hansen, or a external Swede

Likewise. Skellefteå is Norrland's boom town right now, with Northvolt's vast EV battery factory under construction and lots of third party suppliers popping up around it.

Likewise. Skellefteå is Norrland's boom town right now, with Northvolt's vast EV battery factory under construction and lots of third party suppliers popping up around it.


It was also announced about a year ago, but never started due to COVID

Thank you, I must have forgotten about it.

Also flights from Skopje are banned once again, too many covid incidents.

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

SKP-TKU? I honestly can't understand how come SKP can't do a better job at checking all this.
