Two Avro RJs of Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA) diverted to Malmö on 10 August due to unusual engine sounds. RJ85 SE-DJN (msn E2231) went first. Her crew detected unusual sounds soon after departing Göteborg on flight TF8238 to Kefallinia. They diverted to Malmö and landed safely. A few hours later, she was joined on the ground at Malmö by RJ100 SE-DSU (msn E3248), whose crew also detected unusual engine sounds while en route from Göteborg to Split on flight TF8238. They turned back, and after holding for some time to burn off fuel, landed safely at Malmö. Aside from the coincidence of occuring on the same day, neither incident was particularly newsworthy. After appropriate checks had been carried out, SE-DJN returned to service on 11 August, and SE-DSU on 14 August. RJ85 G-JOTR (msn E2294) was leased from Jota Aviation on 11 August to help cover for their absence; she positioned to Varna and operated flight TF8247 to Odense, then returned to Southend.
