Norwegian´s Logo-Jet And SAS: SVG-OSL-TRD-BOO

Thu Jul 02, 2009 4:39 pm

Norwegian´s Logo-Jet and SAS: SVG-OSL-TRD-BOO

Hei, dear readers,

it´s time now to continue my series about flights around Norway.

The first part with the legs from FRA to SVG is covered here
SAS And Faroe Atlantic Airways: FRA-CPH-SVG (by FLIEGER67 Jun 27 2009 in Trip Reports)

Today´s first two legs are originally booked on one of SK´s 735 machines, SVG-TRD with an en-route stop without aircraft change at BGO.
Short after booking I´ve received a notice from SK that this flight was cancelled.
They offered other options but nothing that really suits my needs with an afternoon leg from TRD to BOO.
So the decision was quickly done to use only the first leg on SK, SVG to OSL and look for other options from OSL to TRD.

SVG (Stavanger-Sola) Sunny, 20 degrees
OSL (Oslo-Gardermoen) Sunny, 23 degrees
Duration: 40 minutes announced
45 minutes actual

Service SK 4016 operated by SAS Scandinavian Airlines
Scheduled: 11.00 // 11.50
Actual: 11.00 // 11.45
Gate: 18 Seat: 09F
Load factor: Around 70%
Fare: 76,09 EUR


The "Flybussen" picked me up pretty early that Sunday morning opposite the hotels entrance.
Only low traffic on the way to the airport.
Check-In was interesting, all the pax had to use the self service kiosks. These machines printed also the luggage tags, not bad.
Only counters open for bag-drop, another thing to cut costs.
Ok for me, the chance to select my seat of choice. Most windows taken, so more in the front this time.
And also time enough to walk a bit around the airport.

No more longer with SK:

Later I´ve passed security without any time to wait. The gate area was fairly empty, time for some more pix.
I´am impressed about SVG, a modern building in typical Scandinavian architecture, lots of glass and wood elements.

From the gate area:

Well designed, isn´t it?:

My machine:

My flight was scheduled on a 737 plane, one parked at a finger gate. And as soon as the gate was shown on the screen, that seems to be my machine.
LN-RRN, delivered at 03.11.1999 to SK, one of the total 17 in SK´s fleet, named "Solveig Viking". .
Leg not 21 for me on that type and something new for my log.

No action on the runways, therefore a rolling takeoff from the 36, 2556 meters long. Cockpit crew was Scandinavian, short informations inflight from the pilot, later during approach also from the FO.
No route or flightlevel information.
Free coffee on offer, beneath that buy on board.

Good weather and a calm flight, nice views into OSL on approach for the 3600 meters runway 19R.
Not long to taxi to the terminal and parked at a finger gate.

Arrived at OSL:

Well, that was not my first time in OSL, but I'am once more impressed about that spacious and airy terminal building.

Inside OSL:

A nice gesture from Norwegian this time, so it seems, it was the polar explorers Roald Amundsen Logojet LN-KKL,
a 737-300 delivered at 21.11.1997 to Varig and in service with Norwegian since 03.09.2002.
There are currently 28 733´s in Norwegians fleet. Leg no.35 on that type for me and another new example for my log.
Finger boarding also here nearly ontime.
Three female FA´s on this machine, real friendly.
The cabin fitted with dark blue leather seats, well used, low, but acceptable legroom.

Cabin:

It seem´s we´re going for a visual approach, pretty high above the hills, fast descending trough a valley for a landside finals on the 2759 meters runway 27 well ontime.
Finger deboarding, welcome to Trondheim Vaernes airport.

At the gate:

At the gate:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/N0901/N0901120.jpg

My machine for the flight to BOO arrived pretty early, good punctuality here on Norwegian.
And as expected, the SK flight OSL-TRD which was offered during the rebooking was delayed.
So, that was a good decision don´t using that flight and go on the earlier Norwegian service.
It was another 733, pretty good looking and fitted with blended winglets.
LN-KHB was delivered at 17.09.1998 to BA (Germany), NEW: Dba Luftfahrtgesellschaft (Germany)">DI-Deutsche BA, further at 01.04.2004 to Aegean Airlines from Greece and since 17.09.2008 in service with Norwegian.
Leg no. 36 on the 733 for me and another new entry to my log.

Some more Dash´s:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/N0901/N0901121.jpg

Also here finger boarding.
With two Norwegian legs done during the last weeks it was a nice surprice to board this machine.
The cabin fitted with stylish dark grey and hard slimline leather seats, better legroom than on the other planes.

Also here finger deboarding, out in the public to catch my bag which made it also to BOO.
Well, no Flybussen here, there was a sign for the local bus service with a departure some minutes later, but I´ve waited for more than 30 minutes,
it seems no service this day.
Finally catched a expensive taxi and ride "downtown" to my hotel, the Rica Bodo,
another recommendable place to stay in the area.

My room:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/N0901/N0901133.jpg

In the evening:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/N0901/N0901136.jpg

And once more much better in the morning:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/N0901/N0901137.jpg

So, two legs on Saturday and now three more done.
SK was ok, nothing special, rescheduled flights seems more than usual nowadays.
DY was better, friendly staff, ontime flights, interesting planes.
No problem to fly on both airlines again, with 16 more legs to go around these trip, a good chance to do that soon!.

Comments welcome,
Markus (FLIEGER67)

You will reach some day when you will know each and every airport in Europe not counting all the airlines and aircrafts. You are amazing!

Is Bodo town the most Northern airport in Europe? If not, then which one is it?
There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

Hi Markus,

It was nice to read how your story continues. You took some really great landscape pictures from your flights - well done!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Check-In was interesting, all the pax had to use the self service kiosks. These machines printed also the luggage tags, not bad.

I know the system from SAS at CPH. It seems to be the maximum of possible self-service components.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
I´am impressed about SVG, a modern building in typical Scandinavian architecture, lots of glass and wood elements.

It looks very nice.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
And as expected, the SK flight OSL-TRD which was offered during the rebooking was delayed.
So, that was a good decision don´t using that flight and go on the earlier Norwegian service.

Always good to find out afterwards that you took the right decision.

Hello,

Nice trip report.

Norway is really nice and special, all year around.

The northern most town on the mainland by definition as far as I know is Hammerfest. Question though if Longyearbyen at Svalbard is the northern most town in Norway. Not sure if it's considered a town by definition.

Best regards,
Magnus

Hi Markus,

Some real nice flying there, another 736 and a 733 with winglets, cool!

SVG looks like a nice airport, must go there one day.

Norways is a lovely country, not spent much time there and it was a while ago but enjoyed it, must try and sell it to Mrs BA319-131, she likes beaches...........

Looking forward to the next installment.

Best Wishes

Well, give me six more legs. First I had to go to the Lofoten islands and then around three hours more northern to Longyearbyen, Svalbard (Spitzbergen).

Hammerfest is also coming up during the next stories.
And Longyearbyen, well, two hotels, some houses and mining factories, but with 24 hours shining sun per day, I loved it!.

Hi Markus

once more an interesting trip!
DY's aircraft look good so far. Have seen a report lately which was more negative about them. They now fly twice to AMS in the evening only. Not good for daytrip to Scandinavia for me.
Hope to read the next legs soon.

Regards,
Eric

Another interesting chapter in this trip. The hints you keep dropping about your upcoming itinerary are a great way to keep up suspension - that's good.

You know that Bodø is a major Norwegian Air Force (and thus Nato) air base? The Norwegian Aviation Museum is there at the airport - that's a place I've been wanting to visit for a long time but haven't yet had the chance.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
19.-20.07//Six legs around Estonia

Damn - I'll be around Estonia (all the Baltics actually) on 17.-18.7, including overnight in Tartu. It'd been nice to bump into each other.

Hi Markus,

Thanks for this great TR. Especially with Norwegian! I was always wondering what it would be like flying with them.

I am dying to try the Recaro seat.

Cheers,

Very cool trip report. Trondheim is a city I would love to visit some day. The whole Nordic part of Europe is fascinating to me. Thanks again!

Thank you and I agree with you, I love the Nordic´s.

DY's aircraft look good so far. Have seen a report lately which was more negative about them.

With four legs now in my schedule absolutely ok for that part of the industry.

Quoting Contact Air (Reply 2):
It seems to be the maximum of possible self-service components.

I wonder why the concept of self-drop-off hasn't been pursued any further. Some years ago, LH had some baggage drop-off "tunnels" right behind the check-in kiosks at HAM, thus no LH staff was needed for the process (except for some agents explaining the system to the unexperienced travelers). I never saw those again, strange! This procedure could save more costs, and what's the point of having an agent take your bag and put it on a conveyor belt?

Same system in service actually at MUC, IIRC.
In Scandinavia its mainly for the ID check, from my point of view, no more passports needed at the gate.

Quoting MadameConcorde (Reply 1):

Is Bodo town the most Northern airport in Europe? If not, then which one is it?

On this map you can see how Bodø is placed, and see where the different aerodromes are placed in Norway.
As you can see from the map, Bodø is far from being the most northern airport. Honningsvåg and Hammerfest should be the most northern airports in mainland Europe.

Great TR  Smile

Hi Markus,

Part 2 is also impressive! I like the Norwegian landscapes very much!
Need to go back there anytime soon!
OSL is indeed a very nice airport, I especially liked the IKEA-styled wooden structures in the terminal building. Simply great!
SK is a steady airline, do what they are supposed to do. I am however surprised that you rate Norwegian higher, which is good for them!

Thanks for sharing, and keep 'em coming Big grin

Hello,

I'm sure we will be able to see more great pictures in the next installement from northern Norway.

I can really recommend a trip with Wideroe from TOS to KKN with intermediate stops in HAA, HFT, ALT, BVG, BFJ and VDS. Then return via VDS, BFJ, MEH, HVG, and HFT.

Stunning views and scenery!

Looking forward for the next post.

Best regards,
Magnus

Hi Markus,

again an interesting part of your Scandinavia series. I was thinking to do a trip to LYR as well, but never had the idea to make a 21 legs trip of it.

Amazing to read about your experiences. BTW, nice weather!

Servus Markus,

interesting part II with nice pictures. Good to see some more DY cabin layouts. I recently flew on LN-KKJ which was different from yours.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Real good looking:

The livery looks terrible without the "real Norwegians" IMO - they should soon place more heads on the white tails.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The cabin fitted with stylish dark grey and hard slimline leather seats, better legroom than on the other planes.

Probably ex-Aegean cabin style?

Quoting LH4116 (Reply 3):
Congrats on finally getting the 736 in your log!

If you are referring to LN-RRN: it's a 737-700.

Hi Markus,

I'm really enjoying this series and just love the shots of the Norwegian landsacape! It seems you've been unlucky with the rescheduling of flights lately, at least you were able to find and interesting alternative.

All the airports, Trondheim, Oslo & Bodo look impressive, clean, spacious, light, just how they should be. As you say, nice touch by Norwegian to have the logo jet, wish more airlines would do this.

Onto part 3....!
Gruss

Is BOO the best gateway for the Lofoten islands?

Yes, from my personal experiences, good to reach from the south, connections to Varoy,
