This will be interesting to follow! They have bought mostly Airbus,lately. Do Boeing even stand a chance? What about the CSeries? Is this RFP for Boeing and Airbus only?

Probably too small as I expect the seating range is between A320neo/737-8MAX and A321neo/737-10max

Then I have a feeling they will buy more A320neo. Will be interesting to follow this RFP.

Interesting, any news on when they expect the first one to be delivered? They have previously stated that they are going to upgrade the 737-fleet with their new interior, which sound like they intend to keep them for a while.

Airbus probably has the advantage, but I wouldn't rule out a Boeing order. SAS has had a narrowbody fleet made up of both Airbus and Boeing for quite a while (and until 2013, Airbus, Boeing and McDonnell Douglas) so they now what it takes. And while an Airbus only fleet probably has its advantages, I don't think SAS would say no if Boeing would give them a great price.

I'd love to see the CSeries in SAS colours, but it is a bit too small to replace a 737-800.

I do not rule Boeing out completely, but I believe that Airbus has the upper hand. The Cseries would work well as a replacement for the 737-600, even though they are shrinking fast and replaced by larger planes.

If they order this by the end of 2017, we'll probably see first delivery after 2020. At that time, there won't be many, if any, -600s left, as they are currently being replaced by a mix of A320neo and CRJ-900

OUL will be closed for the whole July due to runway renovation, eg taxiways will be wider, for wide body use. Remains to be seen how this affects on pax numbers this year, will they reach million again..

Yes, but that is probably not part of this order. If they order the CS300, they would have to split the order, as SAS also needs something bigger to replace the oldest 737-800, A320 and A321 from sometimes after 2020

This is one of those things I will believe when I see the plane touching the runway. Lucky Air belongs to Hainan Group as does Beijing Capital Airlines which applied to fly to HEL already earlier so maybe this time it will actually happen. Would be refreshing so see some other colours at HEL than just the typical white and blue.

But way too small for other routes. And for smaller routes they have the CRJ900 and ATR72. Now, had there been a CS500 available Bombardier would probably have a chance.

They do need to have something better. how many A320neo's are left or their original order? If I remember correct, they also have 11 options for their A320neo? If they convert those options to firm orders, they are not far away from a streamlined fleet of all A320 family of airplanes with this RFP.

Any words yet on their A350 order? Could we see a conversion to the A330neo, or is there a demand to go bigger?

8 delivered out of 30. And there are two aircraft doing test flights in Hamburg

The 11 options have expired, and are no longer valid

Thanks for the update. Too bad the options have expired. They just need to place a new order than ;-)

I was surprised on Saturday to be on a CJR900 from Stockholm to Oslo, that was a first. My town is now getting a lot of CJR900 flights, the people are not amused.

No dates, but you are correct that the 757 will be leased for an entire month. It will be based in Stockholm (ARN) and used on the routes to Alicante, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Faro, Helsingfors, Kreta (Chania), Malaga, Nice, Olbia, Rhodos and Split.

Thank you. So I booked my first flight on the website of Norwegian. From Stockholm to Barcelona on the last day of July. The flight is scheduled to be operated by the Privilege Style 757. Fingers crossed that the aircraft doesn't get substituted for something else.

Nice bonus on the Amsterdam - Stockholm flight the day before by the way. Planned for now is a Boeing 737-600 from SAS.

In addition to Norwegian taken delivery of their first 2 737-8MAX, which touched down at OSL til morning, Novair took delivery of their first A321neo yesterday. No idea why it made a very short stop in GOT, before continuing to OSL. It was also the first visit of at A321neo at OSL

It seems that Air China will use A330-300 on their PEK-ARN route for coming winter season.

Winter schedule used to be A330-200, while summer schedule is operating with A330-300.

Norwegian's flight from Shannon to Providence didn't go well. They really need to work on their customer service and information. It's been absolutely crap for years. These stories just keep repeating themselves.

Passengers were left for "five hours with no information" after one of the first Norwegian flights to the US was grounded.
A flight from Shannon Airport to Providence did not take off due to an aircraft technical issue.

Not quite sure how they figure Avies is going to do TLL-FAE (~950nm great circle) on a plane with ~700nm range... ;) . The EE code is Regional Jet (the AOC holding part of Nordica more or less). Those charters will be with a CRJ. To my best knowledge Avies is pretty much gone completely although they do seem to hold a valid AOC with one Jetstream 31 on it (ES-PJA) but no idea where that plane is.

Turned out to be a Nordica CRJ-900 indeed. Wasn't too sure about Avies' status to be honest, but now I know! ;)

Are we down to 17 737-600 at SAS, after this one leaves the fleet?

In a press release from Norwegian airport operator Avinor, they said June sets a new record. More than 5 million passengers traveled in June. For the first six months Avinor reports a 4,3% increase in traffic. According to the press release OSL passed 2,5 million passengers for the first time, and is reported to be 2 638 453 passengers. (Is this correct? It is a lot). There is a lot of traffic increase up in Northern-Norway. EVE had 9,4% increase in June, and TOS had 7,8% increase.

For some smaller airports up north they have more than 10% increase:

HFT: 31%
SCJ: 20,1%
MJF: 17,1
LKN: 13,8%
MQN: 13,7%

An incident on Finnair AY089 to BKK last Friday: According to Thai news two Estonian citizens were caught smoking in lavatory, not only once but five (!) times. Thai police were waiting for the couple at BKK.

They were eventually told that they would face five-year jail sentence and/or a fine of up to 20,000 Thai baht (EUR 515) each. They agreed to pay the fine and were later released.

HEL scenic terrace remains closed for the time being, because someone used it for climbing to the roof and ending up jumping down.

The new expansion of Helsinki Airport was inaugurated on the anniversary of the airport

The new south pier of Helsinki Airport was opened for passengers and air traffic on Monday, 10 July. The first flight from the majestic south pier departed from gate 54 at 2:10 PM to New York, operated by Finnair. The extension was inaugurated on a historically significant day. Helsinki Airport itself was opened on exactly the same day 65 years ago. On 10 July 1952, the Finnish flag and the Olympic flags flew at sunny airport.
