SAS had the best July in the airline's history last month. And June was the highest number ever for one month.

2.8 million passengers in July 2019, and 2.9 million in June 2019.

Best July ever, but only 0,1% higher than last year

Finnair discontinues four routes this autumn. In addition to Chongqing, AY says goodbye to Kazan, Samara and Yekaterinburg, thus reduces the number of flights to Russia by 10 flights per week. According to Finnair, the performance of these Russian routes didn't meet the financial expectations.

I wonder if the cancellation of the Russian routes will have an impact in pax volume on AY's U.S routes. It is also pretty rare of Finnair to end so many routes. AY did cancel flights to Minsk this year as well...

Yle.fi (in Russian)


Could it be that they are experiencing fleet shortages? After all they are increasing DUB and EDI this winter so they are maybe switching aircraft to routes that seem more promising?


I'm sorry to say, but no. As much as I'd like to these Russian routes to continue, apparently it's not worth it. These flights have been exclusively using NORRA planes that would have been otherwise just sitting idle at HEL, so quitting them just means the flights couldn't cover the fuel/personnel costs. Yes, AY is experiencing fleet shortages, but quitting these flights can't be related to that, except for crew shortages.

With multiple competitors (especially Norwegian) hampered by the 737 MAX grounding, less that record figures for SAS would be very disappointing.

Thursdays and Sundays from CPH, perfect for a long weekend in the Swedish fjäll! Great addition, too bad I'm located in Stockholm. Didn't BRA announce BMA-SCR though?

Yes, and also AGH, GOT, MMX and VXO. So already 8 routes confirmed for this new airport.

I'm guessing that somebody is paying SAS a sizeable amount of cash to persuade them to send a plane once per week between London Heathrow and Salen/Trysil.
A route to London seems far more suited to maybe TUI or Thomas Cook flying into Gatwick instead of SAS to Heathrow

SAS did/does operate a winter route from Heathrow to Kiruna so perhaps this is instead?

Sälen and Kiruna offer quite different winter experiences, but perhaps SAS has to choose one over the other. Abandoning Kiruna to serve Sälen seems odd to me. Sälen has great ski opportunities, but that can be found in the Alps as well. Kiruna with the northern lights, the ice hotel and the vast wilderness is only found there (unless Russia or Canada is an option).

It sounds like they have made a deal with a British package holiday company.

SAS will fly Heathrow-Kiruna on a small number of dates for Discover the World. Flights are only available to those buying a holiday package (i.e. accommodation, transfers, etc)
https://www.discover-the-world.com/dest ... -icehotel/
I can fully understand why this route would be with a full service carrier out of Heathrow - the people going for a few days to the Ice Hotel with Discover the World are likely to have plenty of money - these holidays do not come cheap, so Ryanair out of Stansted is not going to work.

As Fredrik points out, the Ice Hotel has few competitors in Europe - I can think of only the snow castle at Kemi in northern Finland but there are no direct flights to London and it's not quite as good a location for the aurora borealis. Salen/Trysil have to compete with the Alps and Pyrenees so will find it harder to charge a premium price to tourists

Kiruna ice hotel is well known but there are others too. There have been a snow castle & hotel near Kittilä (KTT) airport and ski resorts in Finnish Lapland for many years, the past two winters their theme was Game of Thrones, co operating with HBO naturally. Not sure what's coming next. In winter KTT is well connected to UK and Central Europe, by Finnair, Lufthansa, Easyjet etc, plus the numerous charters. In 2018 KTT had 145K international passengers.

It will be very interesting to see how the routes to Sälen work out. But they do have one advantage, no need for a long bus transfer after you land. The airport is 7 km from the closest resort/slopes.

Norwegian has sold their 17,5% ownership in bank Norwegian to Nordic Capital and Sampo. Although of those 2,2 billion NOK, about 1,2 billion is used to pay of debt on the shares owned, providing Norwegian with about 1 billion NOK in cash.

https://www.flightglobal.com/news/artic ... nk-460348/

Scandinavian budget carrier Norwegian is selling out of Norwegian Finans Holding, the parent company of Bank Norwegian, divesting its entire shareholding for NKr2.2 billion ($246 million).

Yes, only for a few weeks in September. From October 1st it's back to a daily A380 for the entire winter season ;)

Probably not as significant as the changes (some of them) on routes from CPH, OSL, and ARN but yet worth mentioning:

Helsinki
- AY, new route to Beijing Daxing, 3 weekly with A333
- AY, Guangzhou converted to year-round service
- AY, Hong Kong up from 10/12 to 14 weekly with A359
- AY, Los Angeles, 3 weekly with A359 (not served last winter season)
- AY, new route to Punta Cana, 1 weekly with A359
- AY, new route to Sapporo, 2 weekly with A333
- AY, Tokyo Narita up from 7 to 9 weekly with A333/A359

- HO, Shanghai Pudong, 3 weekly with B789 (not served last winter season)

- QR, aircraft change from A333 to A359 (2 daily)

- 3U (Sichuan), new route to Chengdu, 2 weekly with A330

Stats from the Swedish Transport Agency for July 2019 are now out. The likes of SAS, BRA who fly Swedish domestic must be really hurting. Changes for pax numbers on Swedish domestic routes in the period May-July 2019 versus May-July 2018 shown below. If these are sustained in the autumn, something will likely have to change - e.g. frequencies being cut, fares rising, smaller aircraft deployed on routes and PSO contracts being amended

Sad numbers. SJ surely must be thriving? Or possibly travellers are going by bus. In Denmark Flixbus has really taken off.

Is this all against a background of people choosing more environmentally friendly travel options due to 'Flight Shame' as the BBC calls it.

Ornskoldsvik -13.5 %

I don’t see Karlstad in this list. Do you have those numbers as well? In your previous July 2018/2019 comparison, it said ”Karlstad +26%”, so let’s see what the official stats say.

Btw., I’d call AGH Ängelholm or the official ”Ängelholm-Helsingborg Airport”, not just Helsingborg :)

It looks like Norwegian is leaving Bilbao after October. There are no flights load for next summer to OSL/ARN, and TFN is already cut.

Scandinavia-Iberia outside sun&sea destinations is tough. For instance Ryanair made CPH to OPO and SVQ seasonal.

Viewing the route map at Norwegian and I noticed that no U.S flights departing from ARN are on sale for S20 (BKK however is). I'm just wondering whether there actually is a possibility of DY cutting all Stockholm–U.S routes and making some other reductions (temporarily, I assume) for the next summer season. Yes, I know it's way too early to make any conclusions, but flights from CPH to MCO and OSL to JFK/MCO/LAX, however, are available for booking. After they cut all U.S routes from CPH from W19/20 schedule, it wouldn't be that surprising if happened.

At this moment, I'm pretty skeptical about this but I'm just wondering...
ATL, AYT, FRA, FUE, HEL, JFK, LCA, LHR, MUC | AY, BA, DL, FH, LH, LO | A320, A321, A333, 752, 764, 772, 788
The word "Quawer" means nothing but it looks great.

Karlstad in spring 2018 was dominated domestically by the route to Stockholm, operated by Nextjet without any competitors who went bust in the middle of May 2018. Leap began flying the route in mid-July. Thus for the bulk of May-July 2018 there was no scheduled domestic traffic. For this reason, May-July 2018 and May-July 2019 are not really comparable

Sad numbers. SJ surely must be thriving? Or possibly travellers are going by bus. In Denmark Flixbus has really taken off.


SJ have definitely seen a large increase in passengers both last year and this year.
