Skyways launches international route from Sweden to Berlin
Lars-Åke Bertilsson, CEO Skyways, and Sten Norinder, CEO Jönköping Airport, showed the cake baked to celebrate the new international service from the regional Swedish airport to Berlin. Together with the crew, the ribbon was then cut to launch the flight. Among the first passengers were teacher Ing-Marie Sjöbäck, who travelled with a group of students, and Malin Danckwardt, who works in Berlin, but lives in Sweden and now is able to do her weekly commute non-stop.

- Skyways, the Swedish regional airline, on 28 March began its international expansion. From Jönköping (JKG) in south-central Sweden, the airline now flies five times weekly to Berlin Tegel (TXL), a distance of 580 kilometres. Although initially operated with the airline’s Fokker 50s, 48-seat ERJ-145s are in the process of being added to the fleet and will be used on the route. Skyways’ CEO Lars-Åke Bertilsson commented: “This will be a very attractive alternative for passengers to and from Southern Sweden as it will be possible to connect to other airlines in Berlin. Skyways has a cooperation with Air Berlin which makes it possible to check in all the way to the final destination when connecting via Berlin.”
