Sweden’s Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA) concluded its contract to operate an Avro RJ on behalf of Norway’s Widerøe on 14 December. The contract had started on 5 November, and involved an RJ100 operating WF482/WF485 from Oslo Sandefjord to Trondheim and Harstad and back and WF486/487 from Oslo Sandefjord to Trondheim and back every weekday, with the RJ returning home to Malmö on weekends. The specific aircraft assigned to the service changed every week. RJ100 SE-DSR (msn E3244) took the first turn, from 5 to 9 November, followed by SE-DSY (msn E3263) from 12 to 16 November, SE-DSZ (msn E3280) from 19 to 23 November, SE-RJI (msn E3357) from 25 to 30 November, and SE-DSR again from 2 to 7 December. SE-DSX (msn E3255) was to operate for BRA on the final week of the contract, but she experienced engine problems while en route from Oslo to Trondheim on 9 December, and after landing safely at Trondheim returned to Malmö, being replaced by RJ85 SE-DJO (msn E2226) until the end of the contract on 14 December.
