They fly an A321 on VIE-KEF as well. I guess the A321 is just becoming a larger proportion of the fleet, so you see it added to more routes.

I can only answer for Denmark. No, Flygskam is not that wide spread here. Nor is it growing that much. One thing that "helps" is that our train network is very outdated. The infrastructure is breaking down all the time, the InterCity trains and trains to Germany are from the late 80's-early 90's and very worn out. There's absolutely no service on the Danish trains, if you are lucky you can get a cold drink from a machine for 20DKK and if you're very, very lucky the train staff will sell you a tiny cup of instant coffee, also for 20DKK. And finally tickets are very expensive.
I don't want to be rude to my Swedish neighbours, but they've always been a bit extreme on the "PC-scale" compared to the rest of us :D

Foreign student living in Sweden here!
Yes I agree, this sustainable and "ekologisk" thing is getting out of hand here in Sweden, especially among the Swedish university students. The level of hypocrisy among these people is sickening though. A girl in my corridor stuffed her part of the fridge with this over-priced "ekologisk" stuff, yet keeps throwing plastic into the compost paper bag. The exact same type of people also turned my uni's grass field into a sea of trash during Valborg. Ecologist my butt...

Regarding the flygskam, I don't think that it is a big thing here in Norrland. I mean, even with the expensive snabbtåg, the trip from Umeå to Stockholm still takes around 6-7 hours. Faster only by around 1-1,5 hour compared to the cheaper night train and sometimes have the same price as DY to ARN which only took 1 hr.

Sooo, if you don’t do everything 100 % eco friendly you’re a hypocrite and deserves to be ridiculed by others? I think we all need to do what we can to save the planet, but I guess that’s a discussion for another forum.

For Norrland, air travel is necessary. I live in the southern part (guess where!), and some cities here have a travel time to Stockholm via train that makes it impossible to go there without spending the night. Via air I can have a customer meeting and a few meetings with colleagues and still be back to tuck my youngest in at night. Am I a hypocrite? Perhaps. Are Umeå, Storuman or Kiruna people hypocrites because they don’t wish to spend two working days travelling to and from Stockholm and still buy eco food? Not in my opinion.

If you don’t do anything to save the planet you’re not a hypocrite. Is that a good thing? I think I’d much rather be called a hypocrite every now and then...

Actually this got announced on 14 March 2019 as seen in my tweet:

https://twitter.com/SeanM1997/status/11 ... 2320583685

Just because Airlineroute tweets something, doesn't mean its just been released. Airlineroute are nearly 4 months late on this one

True but they face no competition to KEF and they are the only non-stop option for quite a large catchment area. I mean the closest nearby flights to Iceland are from Munich while to the east there are no flights except from Poland. Oslo on the other hand is a completely different story and I can't imagine the market being that big.

OSL-VIE

2015: 128.784
2016: 153.181
2017: 155.723

So in 2017 there were, on average, 213 one-way passengers. That's a bit less than a Wizz Air A321.

That could kill SK's SVG route. They are already down to operating Cityjet CRJs on it.

Not so sure about that. SVG-LHR for SAS is all about the corporate traffic. LTN is further from London, and the high paying gas companies don't really fly ULCC carriers...

SVG-LHR is usually 737s, however occasionally CRJ-900s are being used.

And it's also about connecting traffic, and there are more connecting options in LHR.

Can someone clarify SAS's fleet plans?

They seem to be replacing all their current generation short haul aircraft (a319, a320, 736, 73G, 738) with the a320neo? Is there room for a potential a220 order?

Then there was a quote that seems to indicate that they intend to replace all their current longhaul (a330 & a340) with the a359... With only half of that current generation accounted for with replacement orders is it possible for the a35K or the a330neo on the cards?

Current fleet plans are:
Regional wet-lease: ATR & CRJ900/1000
Short haul: replace 737’s with A320’s. This includes keeping the current A320CEO (319/320/321’s)
Long haul: replace A340’s with A350’s on a 1:1. Replace the oldest A340 (LN-RKP ex Chile) with a A330-300 Enhanced.
Introduce 3 A321LR in the summer of 2020.

I think there is a potential for the A220-100/300, probably operated by wet-lease partner (as the ATR and CRJ’s).

737NGs will be replaced by A320neos (and maybe some A321neos). At least some ceos will be remain in the fleet. For smaller routes, they will use wet leased ATRs and CRJs. I'd love to see A220s with SAS, but I don't think that is likely.

Not sure about the long haul plans. I think the original plan was to order 8 A350s and 4 A330Es to replace 8 A340s and 4 older A330s, but the A330s have been used for expension instead, apart from the newest one that will replace an A340. They have hinted that while the A350s will be used to replace A340s on their current routes, they might keep a few A340s. They also have A321LRs on order, that will probably be used for expansion. I wouldn't bet on an A350-1000 order, the A350-900s are SAS largest aircraft in a long time (largest since they retired the 747s?), but maybe a few A330neo who knows?

The A350-900 are indeed the largest by seat count since the failed introduction of the 747’s.. No chance for the A35K, it’s just too large, and introduce a subfleet of 1-2 A35K’s is not operational efficient.
For long haul the plans are A350’s to replace A340’s on the longest and busiest routes. Keep current A330E, and probably replace the older A330’s with newer once as well, could be NEO’s. The A350 is too big for ARN and OSL as the feed priorities CPH.

OS operates 2x weekly to KEF in the high season as well, but I get your point. Let's see if they manage to stimulate the market.

IMO, now that A321XLR is to be reality, they should convert most of their long haul flights to XLR. It has sufficient leg from all their major cities to most North American destinations (Exl Florida and California), North India, Central Africa, all Middle East and Inland China up to Beijing. They can fly to America from ARN, CPH, OSL and GOT, and add frequencies to please business travelers.

I do not think we will see more SAS long haul from OSL than EWR.

OSL does fine without SAS - actually - attracting other airlines offering the mix needed right now.

SAS should concentrate on Copenhagen in the future.

BRA is getting rid of their Avros, but they have now hinted that they have some jets on busy routes in the future. But if that means A220s, E-jets, CRJs or something else is unknown so far.


Any idea of when they will go? I see SE-DSO/P/T are already retired (stored). I guess the rest will go as they reach some economical limit. Heavy checks probably play a part here.

I wonder if the supposed jets on busy routes will be owned by BRA or leased. What are the busiest routes anyway? Malmö will be one, but how is GOT doing these days with competition from train and other airlines? How dependent are they on the charters? Those are mostly run with the Avros I think. Incidentally I see lots of them have been to Visby this week, no doubt for the political week.

I've heard March 2020. The new jets will be leased and used primarily on the routes to Malmö and GOT. My personal guess it that they might show up in Umeå as well.

And yes, this week Visby have flights to almost everywhere. I've flown to Visby once for Almedalsveckan (I usually take the ferry) and looking at SAS' schedule was interesting, instead of 5 daily ATRs it was 7 daily 737s.

Does anyone have a list of some of the more unusual public flights to/from Visby for Almedalsvecken ? I realise that routes to Arlanda, Bromma, Goteborg or Malmo, along with summer-only Helsingborg, Norrkoping, Ostersund, Sundsvall and Umea will see increased frequency and aircraft size - it's the flights from Swedish middle-of-nowhere airports to Visby which operate only this week that particularly interests me

A month ago, Folkemodet which is the equivalent political festival in Denmark saw all kinds of special scheduled flights like Odense-Ronne and Esbjerg-Ronne from DAT

No, and when I think about it it was Nextjet that was the expert on small Almedalen routes. Like Karlstad, Jönköping, Västerås, Skavsta. So I'm not sure how it has been this year.

Now it's official: Finnair launches Busan-service on March 30, 2020. The route will be operated with Airbus A350 as I expected. Thus, Finnair will fly 10x weekly to South Korea.

SE-REH, the latest SAS A330 was delivered a few days ago. And as soon at it enters scheduled service, LN-RKP will be flown to France to be scrapped.

Is this a PSO route or do they cooperate with someone?

As of September 2019, Boeing 787-8 will operate to Helsinki (HEL) under the flight numbers of QR302 and QR304, replacing A350-900.

The 14 weekly Airbus A330-200/300 service remain unchanged during the winter 2019/2020 season.

This coming winter season, Finnair will increase HEL-DUB from 5 to 9 weekly while HEL-EDI will go from 3 to 6. All flights are operated by E90 expect Friday flights to DUB which will be on the A319.

Interesting that both destinations are being doubled. I guess Dublin is performing well if it's also getting the A319?

According to turisti.is, Tianjin Airlines is looking to open 3 weekly Wuhan–Helsinki–Reykjavík route next winter. Tianjin Airlines is part of HNA Group (as were Beijing Capital Airlines and Lucky Air), so I'm not surprised if this didn't become reality.

Yes, I assume they plan to use 5th freedom rights.

BA reduces LHR-KEF

https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/ai ... ce-in-w19/

British Airways in recent schedule update filed service changes for London Heathrow – Reykjavik Keflavik service, for winter 2019/20 season. Overall frequency has been reduced from 27OCT19, from 11 to 7 weekly.


DL is also making JFK-KEF seasonal. I wonder if other international carriers are also reducing KEF.

With WOW's bankruptcy and Icelandair B737 MAX's reductions, this is going to be a tough winter in KEF. As new routes I can only see AMS on HV, KRK on W6 and LPA/TFS on DY.
