Literally yes, but I doubt he would have mentioned about it on TV so openly if the plans weren’t concrete. As a whole it’s not that big of an increase in capacity but for sure offers a much nicer experience for the passengers connecting to LHR in the afternoon (assuming it will be AY1337) as well as those connecting at HEL at midnight.

Singapore Airlines will upgrade SIN-CPH in 2019.

During the Danish summer holiday (June 19th to August 15th) SQ will add an extra weekly flight, making SIN-CPH 6x weekly.

Schedule

SQ352 SIN-CPH 23:55-06:00+1 Dx7 B77W

SQ351 CPH-SIN 12:30-07:30+1 Dx1 B77W


Also from November 2019, SQ will fly daily between Singapore and Copenhagen. The flights will also be operated by Airbus A350-900 instead of Boeing 777-300ER meaning the end of First Class out of CPH.

Schedule

SQ352 SIN-CPH 23:55-06:00+1 D A359

SQ351 CPH-SIN 12:30-07:30+1 D A359

Apparently, China Southern Airlines has applied for a daily Guangzhou—Helsinki service due to begin on 1 July 2019, aircraft type is still unknown but it might be A330 or 787. Makes sense after CZ decided to exit SkyTeam and probably join Oneworld. This would mean up to 11 weekly flights to Guangzhou from HEL in S19!

Flightglobal claims that "Hainan Airlines is seeking rights to operate daily services from Guangzhou to Helsinki and Tehran, to start on 7 January [2019]." Pretty weird since it's China Southern that has applied for the rights to open the routes mentioned and they are due to commence on July 1, not January 7. Or did I miss something?

Only if Sweden messes up its economy and Finland does not, which is possible though unlikely. Extending the train network in Sweden might reduce the domestic air traffic significantly but not necessarily so fast.


I still believe the aviation tax in Sweden is one of the big reasons why ARN is on a slowdown. If kept by the new government and Finland does not add more taxes, they might eventually overtake Arlanda.


The Nextjet bankruptcy has also affected the ARN figures.

As are SAS and Norwegian, but they might have found a small market that can be profitable.

If I recall correctly, it has been mentioned that the decision on the narrow-body fleet renewal will be done in 2019.

An airliner from Air India (so I presume a 787) has hit a building with the left wing tip at ARN tonight. There were no injuries among the 179 passengers onboard. The police gave their permission to move the plane at 22.30 local time and the Accident Investigation Authority (Haverikommisionen) will now investigate what happened.

Oslo Airport named Airport of the Year by CAPA's Aviation Award.

"CAPAs Aviation Awards for Excellence is presented to airlines and airports that not only demonstrate success and good operations, but which have also proven to be industry leaders in terms of adapting to new and future-oriented solutions for the environment and sustainability."

https://www.ntbinfo.no/pressemelding/av ... d=17857381

Congratulations Avinor and OSL. I don't know how meaningful this award is, considering that there are plenty of awards given left and right for just about everything. But I'm sure it was welcomed by Avinor.

The next big phase of HEL's expansion project will begin in January 2019 with the construction of the new departure and arrival halls. After the new halls are completed, the existing departures and arrivals halls will be turned into airside which should give much needed room in the terminal. Scheduled completion for the new building is in 2021 and for the alteration work in 2022.

I do wonder how Finavia plans to expand in the future (if need be) as they can't really strech much more from the ends of T1 and T2/non-Schengen after the current expansions are finished.

I predict a satellite terminal between runways however I believe increase in pax numbers will be curtailed due to global warming and there won't be need for any further expansion as long as we have fossil fuel burning aircraft.

All operations to/from Groningen Airport in the Netherlands will be withdrawn from Dec. 28, 2018:

- GRQ-CPH 2x daily CRJ
- GRQ-MUC 1x daily CRJ

In S18 GRQ-NCE and GRQ-IBZ were also operated.

While viewing the article at anna.aero, I noticed that HEL and ARN are connected to London City Airport on the map showing the route opportunities that Airbus A220 offers. Could this mean that these two Nordic airports are under LCY's radar regarding the route planning? BA CityFlyer does not have any A220s on order at the moment though.

BA flew LCY to ARN but axed it because it was not profitable. LCY to HEL could work if the schedule is good for the AY's "Asia wave".

SK also flew ARN-LCY, with an Irish registered RJ70...EI-COQ....
operated by an incarnation of Transwede.

Not many of those left now... if any...!

That must have been long long time ago.. I was at ARN back in November 2011 and saw BA E-170 (CityFlyer) standing in T5's F gates alone and engines covered waiting for the return flight to LCY.

The SK LCY flight was around 2006 I believe. The BA flight came later around 2011 and operated until 2016. At one point SAS operated LCY-CPH (with Q400), LCY-ARN with RJ70 and LCY-OSL with RJ70.

The BA route wasn't unprofitable and even went up to three times daily but was axed to launch Dublin five times daily with the same plane. BA also dropped CPH.

I have an early schedule from LCY's younger years and Malmo Aviation use to fly to Malmo and on to Bromma!

I am sure BMA-LCY would be a hit. However, with both SK and BA operating from ARN it is unlikely any of them will try that route.

Nextjet announced it was leasing an RJ85 for a BMA-LCY service but it never started. http://www.flygtorget.se/Forum/Detaljer ... tOrder=ASC
https://www.skyscanner.se/nyheter/londo ... olm-bromma

I fly LHR-ARN every week and would switch to a LCY-BMA service instantly. Even LCY-ARN would make me very happy. I'm surprised Sun Air don't give it a go.

I too wondered about that.Sure it would make £££.
SunAir are a quality operation, but I suspect the BA grown ups wouldn’t like that.
LCY-BLL , slightly different as was started long before BA jumped on the bandwagon with direct LHR flights.

Does anyone have additional information on this?

Norwegian Group renews plans for Asian growth

(behind the paywall)


Seemingly it has something to do with Norwegian Air Sweden. Weird is that they complain about the aviation tax in Sweden and cut routes from ARN but they're still planning to launch a number of Asian flights from Sweden (which they cannot do because of Russia).

With a little trick it's possible to read the first few paragraphs but those don't reveal too much. Kjos just repeated the story about ARN having the potential to become a major hub for flights between Asia and North America, but added that it's only possible with "more air-friendly policies and competition on an equal footing".

He also mentioned that Norwegian Air Sweden will soon apply for traffic rights, including an application to the DOT for flights to the US.

The SK LCY flight was around 2006 I believe. The BA flight came later around 2011 and operated until 2016. At one point SAS operated LCY-CPH (with Q400), LCY-ARN with RJ70 and LCY-OSL with RJ70.

The BA route wasn't unprofitable and even went up to three times daily but was axed to launch Dublin five times daily with the same plane. BA also dropped CPH.

I have an early schedule from LCY's younger years and Malmo Aviation use to fly to Malmo and on to Bromma!


I recall being on a Cimber ATR-42 CPH-LCY around 2008. Not much room, but we got there...

It diverted to CWL, and then later flew on to DGX, which is only a 6 km(!) flight!

Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia (DK) have leased a rather famous A330-200 from Air Transat to use as a spare for the W19 season. The aircraft, C-GITS aka the "Azores Glider", arrived in CPH a few days ago, and will become OY-VKK.

And SAS will replace the A340-300 with an A330-300 on the same route from 27 October 2019, according to the same source and SAS' booking system


It seems to be their new A330E that will first be used on SK901/902 CPH-EWR during the summer but then moved to SK995/996 CPH-PEK in October, replacing an A340.
