Do you know, which cities will SAS serve with A350s in the future? At least I know they will be used on North American routes. As A350s bring more capacity, where will be SAS' next new long-haul destinations? Seattle, Seoul, Manila, Johannesburg, Toronto or Vancouver perhaps?


I don't think they have announced any plans for the A350s yet. But my guess is that they will replace the A330/A340s on the busiest routes, like CPH-EWR. And maybe some A340s will be used to open new routes, and maybe they will leave the fleet.

No new long haul routes have been announced but they have hinted at Seoul and Toronto as possible new destination. There have also been speculations about India, but that doesn't seem as likely since Air India started flying to ARN and CPH. And SAS have stated that they are focusing on the northern hemisphere, so Joburg seems unlikely.

Finnair adds flights to top European destinations for summer 2018 and to Lapland for winter 2018/2019

In line with its growth strategy, Finnair continues to grow its traffic and will add frequencies to popular destinations in Europe for summer 2018 and winter 2018, as well as increase flights to the popular winter destinations in Finnish Lapland for the peak season in winter 2018/2019. The additions are fueled by the increasing number of Asians traveling to Finnair’s European destinations.

[...]

Finnair is also launching a new Rail & Fly cooperation with Deutsche Bahn, combining air and rail travel. The new cooperation means that customers buying a Finnair ticket to or from Germany can also include a rail trip to their booking. The cooperation covers more than 5,600 railway stations in Germany.

Finnair press release 5.12.2017


Added frequencies in summer 2018 to: LIS, BCN, BUD, KRK, GVA. AY will also (perhaps surpisingly) fly again to TSE (Astana) in July and August, 2x weekly.
Added frequencies in winter 2018-19 to: MAD, KEF, GVA (and previously reported added flights to Lapland).

Finnair revamps its business class with a Nordic touch

In conjunction with its annual Press Day, Finnair has today announced the launch of a new business class service concept and new Marimekko design elements for both cabin classes, celebrating its Nordic roots and offering customers a unique Nordic customer experience.
[...]
Finnair’s new business class service concept will commence as of February 7, 2018, on flights to Seoul, Tokyo and Shanghai, with a gradual roll-out of the remaining long-haul destinations during the spring and summer.
[...]
“Our new seat textiles and comfort amenities have a fresh and modern aesthetic that is inspired by Nordic homes and landscapes. ”The new interior elements are rolled out to Finnair’s Airbus A350 aircraft in phases during 2018.

KLM starts flights to Växjö (VXO) in Sweden

Starting daily from the S18 timetable. Daily with a E175.

KLM's fourth swedish destination and 14th scandinavian destination. Amazing how KL seems to pick up on so many smaller EU destinations.

Regarding KLM's new route to Vaxjo, it is perhaps worth noting that Estonian Air flew Vaxjo-Amsterdam in 2014. I've got a feeling (but not 100% certain) that Estonian's routes was operated as a KLM codeshare.

Amsterdam is not a huge metropolis and KLM has traditionally had a much higher proportion of connecting passengers compared to the likes to British Airways / Air France who have a greater propotion of (more profitable) passengers that begin / end their journeys in London or Paris. Competing head-on against the likes of Lufthansa would nevere have been sustainable long term so to become a major carrier KLM have had to specialilse in being the main European hub based airline at plenty of minor airpots all over Europe (particularly the UK and Scandinavia) as well as other continents

Royal Jordanian will launch a new 3x weekly Amman-Copenhagen route on 3 June 2018. The route will be operated year-round with A319.

cph.dk

I wonder, will RJ serve ARN and HEL from AMM in the future. The airline already serves both airports with charter services to Aqaba. And will CPH and OSL also get a charter service to Aqaba?

Hopefully. Unless I'm wrong, Air Berlin operated to HEL 3x daily (21 weekly flights), so the gap will be filled as easyJet will operate to HEL 1x daily, Eurowings 6x weekly and Finnair 4x daily (instead of 3x daily) to Berlin. There will be only 1x weekly flight "missing", but that will be replaced by increased capacity as of March 2018.

Since easyJet starts flying to HEL as well as Eurowings, I think it's possible that HEL would get routes to Cologne/Bonn, London-Luton and/or other bases of those airlines in the future ;)

About KLM - I haven't seen it mentioned here... KL added one weekly frequency to LPI (20x weekly instead of 19x) , started Oct 29. ( Sundays got 3 flights instead of 2. )

AB flew around 26 weekly flights, one reason being that AB fed AY's Asia network, which EW or U2 won't do.

Finnair should start codesharing with easyJet or Eurowings or form a partnership with those airlines, but let's see if it happens.

It's amazing how many smaller markets KLM serves in Scandinavia!
They've always been big in Norway with secondary destinations, so it's extra fun to see them try out more of those in Sweden.
If VXO performs well, I can see the likes of Umeå/Luleå/Sundsvall/Örebro being added in the long run...

HEL-AMM might work as both cities are Oneworld hubs, so with right schedule there are lots of potential connections in each end.

Interesting. Helsinki was amongst the world's most wanted routes in IATA's "Slots Kuala Lumpur 2017"-event as well as in "Slots Madrid 2017" along with New York, Tokyo, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Shanghai for example.

And "Copenhagen Airport provided seven new routes which no other airport had on their respective wish lists – namely Amman, Beirut, Johannesburg, Philadelphia, Seattle-Tacoma, Tehran and Vancouver."
