Braathens will fly larger planes to Split next year

Swedish air carrier Braathens International Airways (TT/BIX) will take over 3 Airbus A320 planes in the near future, which will join the current fleet of 4 Airbus A319. This air carrier started with flight operations in the early Spring of this year as a daughter company of Swedish regional air carrier Braathens Regional Airlines (TF/SCW). The core business of this company is regional routes in Scandinavia with 14 ATR-72-600 planes. However, they founded a new daughter company that will operate charter flights from Scandinavia to tourist destinations around the Mediterranean.

This year Braathens has already operated charter flights to Split with its Airbus A319 planes, from Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Jönköping, Kalmar, Malmö, Norrköping, Örebro, Oslo, and Växjö for the Apollo tourist agency. For the next year new charter flights from Stockholm with Airbus A320 are already visible in their booking reservations.

This business deal for the Apollo tourist agency already exists for several years. However, these charter flights were prevouisly oprerated by smaller British Aerospace ARJ-100 planes under the old name of this company, Malmö Aviation (TF/SCW).
