Blue1 RJ85s parked at Helsinki (Mikko Haajanen)

Although Blue1 retired all their Avro RJ85s at the beginning of September, the type has not disappeared from the airline’s network, as an Atlantic Airways RJ85 has been wetleased to cover some routes. RJ85 OY-RCE (msn E2233) arrived in Helsinki on 6 September, and entered service the following day. OY-RCD (msn E2235) took over on 24 September. Although all five of Blue1’s own RJ85s remain parked at Helsinki, the airline no longer has any crews for them, as they have all entered training for the Boeing 717.
