Malmö Avro RJ100 to operate for Sverigeflyg


Malmö Aviation will operate one of its Avro RJ100s on behalf of sister company Sverigeflyg during the 2012 summer season. Sverigeflyg is an umbrella brand for seven Swedish local airlines: Blekingeflyg (Ronneby), Flysmaland (Växö), Gotlandsflyg (Visby), Kalmarflyg (Kalmar), Kullaflyg (Angelholm/Helsingborg), and Sundsvallsflyg (Sundsvall). Malmö Aviation parent Braathens Aviation acquired Sverigeflyg in April 2011. Braathens Aviation then also acquired Golden Air, which operated most flights for Sverigeflyg, in December 2011. Sverigeflyg and Malmö Aviation have already been coordinating schedules at Stockholm’s Bromma Airport, where they account for the majority of movements. Under the new agreement, a Malmö Aviation Avro RJ100 will be used on two flights a week between Malmö and Visby from June 4 to August 26, alternating with a Gotlandsflyg ATR72. It is not known whether a specific RJ100 will be dedicated to the Visby route and painted in Sverigeflyg (or Gotlandsflyg) colors, but given the limited schedule this seems unlikely.
