Sweden’s Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA) has acquired former Swiss Avro RJ100 G-CFAD (msn E3380 ex HB-IYT) to replace RJ100 SE-DST (msn E3247), who was declared an insurance write-off. G-CFAD was stored at Cranfield after being returned off-lease by Swiss at the end of 2016. In mid-2017 she was ferried to Norwich, returning to Cranfield on 24 May in all-white colors. A possible sale to an Italian airline fell through, however, and she was once again placed in storage. Following a flight test on 14 November, she was registered as SE-DSZ to BRA’s parent, Braathens Regional Aviation, on 17 November, and then flown to Malmö. After additional work by the airline, she flew a flight test on 15 February and then entered service on 17 February with a rountrip to Bromma as TF171/172. She has had the airline’s titles applied, but is otherwise still all white.
