Skyways launches second Stockholm route to Gotland
- Skyways launched two routes in the last week; one Swedish domestic and one intra-Scandinavian to cover for the bankruptcy of its Danish sister airline Cimber Sterling. Both are operated with F50 aircraft. On 2 May, the Swedish regional carrier began operating 15 times weekly, thrice-daily on weekdays, between Stockholm Bromma (BMA) and Visby (VBY) on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea, complementing its 24 weekly operations to the island from Stockholm Arlanda. Flights compete with Gotlandsflyg’s 46 weekly operations as well as indirectly with NextJet’s 10 flights a week from Arlanda. On 7 May, the airline launched 10 weekly flights between Norrköping (NRK) in eastern Sweden and the Danish capital Copenhagen (CPH), a route previously operated by Cimber Sterling. Through its partnership with SAS, passengers can connect onto the Scandinavian flag carrier at its Copenhagen hub.
Please note that Skyways filed for bankruptcy on 22 May and that operations now have been suspended.
