Flyglinjen launches its 15 per week service from Kristianstad to Stockholm on 11 August, a short 474-kilometre route flown using a bmi regional aircraft in a deal between the two carriers.
- Flyglinjen, the Swedish regional carrier, now markets Kristianstad (KID) to Stockholm Arlanda (ARN) using bmi regional as the operating airline. The new hop from Southern Sweden, which was added on 11 August, is a 474-kilometre sector to the Swedish capital. Travellers using the 15 per week service should expect to board an ERJ-145. Cathal O’Connell, bmi regional CEO, said: “The success of this deal with Flyglinjen paves the way for similar airline relationships elsewhere.” Philip Lofgren, CEO of Flyglinjen added: “Flyglinjen is delighted that bmi regional will operate our route from Kristianstad to Arlanda. The change from a Fokker 50 to an Embraer ERJ-145 brings many advantages to our customers such as a reduced flight time as well as a more comfortable and quiet experience.”
