Malmö Aviation drops Braathens name

Swedish BAe 146 operator Braathens Malmö Aviation has reverted to its former name of Malmö Aviation. Malmö Aviation was acquired by Norwegian airline Braathens in 1998, and adopted the Braathens Malmö name in February 1999, after operations were integrated with those of Braathens Sverige (formerly Transwede). The experience proved short-lived, however. The money-losing operations from Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport that had been acquired from the Transwede side of the merger were soon wound down, leaving the airline focused on what had been the previous Malmö Aviation’s operations from Bromma. The airline is awaiting delivery of nine Avro RJ100s to replace its fleet of BAe 146-200s. A new color scheme is expected to be introduced when the RJ100s are delivered.
