Swedish regional airline NextJet will launch services from Stockholm Bromma to London City in August, using an Avro RJ85. Hitherto the airline has concentrated on serving domestic destinations, mostly in northern Sweden, although it also flies to two international destinations. Although the source of the RJ85 was not disclosed, it could be one of the former Transwede examples which is currently being used by Malmö Aviation. The airline did indicate that it would fly the RJ85 itself, rather than wet-leasing. Services to London City should begin on 16 August.
