Interesting update about SAS long-haul cabin refresh: http://www.scandinaviantraveler.com/no/newcabin

On the right column, they have now posted which Aircraft will be updated, and in what order. It seems like their A343's are the last to be updated, after all four A330's are done. Interestingly, their latest aquired widebody, LN-RKP (Torfinn Viking) which entered the fleet in March 2014, will not be getting the cabin refresh.

SAS kept the fully flat beds that was installed when it came from LAN. If its not getting upgraded with the new cabin interior, I see it as an indication that it will be the first A340 to leave the fleet as newer jets are added in the future.

LN-RKP neither has the standard interior as it is is the odd one in the fleet, and mostly used on a few routes from CPH and as a spare aircraft. While it lacks premium economy it has lie-flat in business and AVOD in all classed SAS has chosen not to spend many millions on upgrading a single aircraft rented from Airbus as a stop-gap solution

Makes sense. I'm wondering if SAS will ever use their option for 6 more A350-900, or if they'll order A330neo when the time comes. SAS's A330 fleet already has the RR Trent 700 engines, so they'll have commonality with the neo engines. Time will tell.

I didn't know that it was leased from Airbus! (Planespotters has no info on it.) I was under the impression that they had simply bought it.

SAS will today, at midnight open up their ARN-HKG flight for sale.

Looks like the first flight will be on September 10. Will be interesting to see the schedule.

Actually, just tried to make a dummy booking and it is already open for booking.


Schedule:


SK963 ARN-HKG 15:00-07:20 +1, 10hrs 20min
SK964 HKG-ARN 09:05-14:35 11hrs 30min

Aircraft type: A330-300


How will they rotate the A330 to/from ARN, as both the EWR and ORD flights arrive/depart in the morning?

Same day ORD's SK945/946 moves from an afternoon (1235-1625) to evening (1830-2105) probably for this.

So far there is no change of the schedule on ARN-EWR/ORD. However, they might announce something later.

Looking again at the Upgrade plans, the A340's that ARE getting the Upgrade are:
LN-RKF Godfred Viking (TC Aviation Capital Ireland Ltd)
OY-KBM Astrid Viking (Rurik Ltd)
OY-KBA Adalstein Viking (Rurik Ltd)

The remaining A340's:
OY-KBC Freydis Viking
OY-KBD Troste Viking
OY-KBI Rurik Viking
LN-RKG Gudrod Viking
LN-RKP Torfinn Viking "the oddball"  

So I take it 5 A340's will be leaving shortly, as their leases expire, and New Aircraft are being delivered. Two A330 "enhanced" as SAS are calling them will join the fleet this year. Which two A343's will leave?

It's not only SAS who call them Enhanced.. Airbus does too.

As regards to which one will leave, I don't know.. but since Torfinn "Oddball" Viking has a better cabin than the others, I'm guessing one of the others. Depends on when leases expire and when heavy maintenance is up.

It is not decided yet, and depend how much SAS choses to grow, or how much of the new aircrafts are just replacements. With the new ARN-HKG route, SAS will probably need more than the current capacity, suggesting that another A340 is likely to stay untill the A350s start arriving

Ryanair have this morning annouced additional four new routes from CPH - Rome Ciampino, Madrid Barajas, Brussels Charleroi and Stockholm Skavsta. In adddtion the frequency of the allready annouced routes to London Luton and Milan Bergamo will increase in september - LTN from 2x to 3x daily and BGY from 1x to 2x daily.

Which are the weekly frequencies for MAD?

IB is increasing the route to daily from S15 (continuing in winter). Norwegian hasn't loaded the next winter season, but it is up as well to daily in summer. And Air Europa offer some services targeted to cruise customers. Of course SAS is missing.

So with Ryanair entering in september, the route will be at thrice daily some days already in September/October.

I wonder if that is sustainable.

A bit crazy IMO. Three daily then (1 each Iberia, Norwegian and Ryanair)... I bet we will see cheap fares in that route for a while, specially with DY and FR fighting for it  . I wonder how sustainable is that.

Ok Finland is not really Scandinavia but anyway, Finnish authorities have approved the
transfer of 60% of Flybe Nordic from Flybe UK Ltd to StaffPoint Holding Ltd and
G.W. Sohlberg Ltd (GWS).

Quoting Finnair;:


The Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority has approved the transaction
in which Flybe UK Ltd’s 60 % ownership of Flybe Nordic venture will be transferred
to StaffPoint Holding Ltd and G.W. Sohlberg Ltd (GWS) . The letter of intent on this
transaction was announced on 7 January 2015. Upon completion of the sale,
StaffPoint’s ownership in the joint venture will be 45%, GWS’s 15% and Finnair’s 40%.
The transaction is expected to be closed in early February 2015.

At the same time they will increase SKP-GOT from 3 to 4 weekly, and MMX from five weekly to daily!

The point is that some of those threads do not have enough activity to keep them alive.

Therefore it would make sense to include them into a Nordic aviation thread so that we can have
one larger active thread rather then several smaller threads which becomes archived due to inactivity.

Geographiacally only Norway and Sweden belong to Scandinavia because they are situated on the Scandinavian peninsula. Denmark is really not part of Scandinavia. But SAS has confused matters here and included Denmark as well. Noone know why but now Denmark is also considered to be part of Scandinavia.

I agree that a new Nordic thread should be created, this back and forth about who's Scandinavian and not is just a sideshow. The Nordic thread would consolidate everyone and be an easy place to go find info for the entire region. If there's any more question on who's Nordic and who's not I think the Nordic Council would be a good reference! They have the following member states:

Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland

Iceland Aviation Thread Number 1? (by lesfalls Jan 23 2015 in Civil Aviation)

I haven't seen this posted before, but Braathens Aviation in Sweden is restructuring their airline, merging all the smaller ones into a larger one; Braathens Regional Airlines. They'll utilize their fleet much better by flying all over their network, and creating new schedules. Very interesting article in Swedish:

Geographiacally only Norway and Sweden belong to Scandinavia because they are situated on the Scandinavian peninsula. Denmark is really not part of Scandinavia. But SAS has confused matters here and included Denmark as well. Noone know why but now Denmark is also considered to be part of Scandinavia.

If I remember correctly, Scandinavia is the latin word for Skåne...

ARN will be ready for the A380 in the next two years according to Swedavia.

CPH is also making A380 ready.

Finger C is being rebuilt right now, and when finished it will have one gate with two bridges for A380.

During the coming summer runway 04R/22L will be resurfaced, and at the same time it will be made wider to accommodate the A380.

At present it is only 45m - 150 feet wide, a little narrow for the A380 outer engines - or for the hares living in the grass along the runway.

The two projects (finger C rebuild and runway resurfacing/widening) costs just over DKK 300M or US$45M, but only a minor part of that money is A380 related.

Yes, I was a little too quick  

Scandinavia is the English version, of the latin word "Scania" for Skåne

do you think any airline has expressed that they want to take their A380 to ARN?

I don't know really. Don't think TG have neither demand or available aircraft for A380 service to ARN.
Regarding EK I don't know how good/bad they are doing at ARN.

SK confirms QI to be renamed Red1. Read more here (in Danish only): http://www.dr.dk/Nyheder/Penge/2015/02/11/150035.htm

Guess they did not acquire the Red1.com-domain in time  Wow!

SAS will today, at midnight open up their ARN-HKG flight for sale.

Looks like the first flight will be on September 10. Will be interesting to see the schedule.

Same day ORD's SK945/946 moves from an afternoon (1235-1625) to evening (1830-2105) probably for this.


This will be the new schedule for SAS' ARN-ORD flight

SK945 ARN-ORD 10SEP15-25OCT15 1635 - 1835
SK946 ORD-ARN 10SEP15-25OCT15 2105 - 1230 +1
SK945 ARN-ORD 26OCT15-27MAR16 1510 - 1725
SK946 ORD-ARN 26OCT15-27MAR16 1945 - 11:10 +1

Thanks.

I wonder if they will change the CPH-ORD flight to a morning flight instead of the current evening schedule.

Huh, SK management really impresses me less and less, day by day. Naming an airline in 2015 without being able to add the dot com suffix!!! OMG.

And in addition red1.com is not just a software company like sas.com, but a restricted site by adult filters.

On a scale from 0 to 1, I will give minus 1 for this one.

They still have time to correct this blunder. They may take my proposal - blue2.com - for absolutely zero royalties. I will even pay their URL fee for choosin it, or for choosing anything else but red1.
