Höga Kusten Flyg launches new route to Jönköping from Stockholm Arlanda

Initially, Höga Kusten Flyg’s flights between Stockholm Arlanda and Jönköping in south-central Sweden will be operated with Denim Air’s Fokker 50s, but these are planned to be replaced with Saab 2000 aircraft. Behind the new arrival in Jönköping is one of the competitor Flyglinjen’s two Jetstream 31s.

  • The Swedish regional airline Höga Kusten Flyg launched a domestic route on 20 August that previously was operated by now bankrupt Skyways. The virtual airline, which normally flies between Örnsköldsvik in northern Sweden and the country capital’s main airport Stockholm Arlanda (ARN), now also flies from the capital 15 times weekly to Jönköping (JKG) in south-central Sweden. Initially, flights are operated with F50s by the Dutch airline Denim Air, but the intention is for Golden Air’s Saab 2000s, also with 50 seats, to operate the route. Competition comes from 13 flights a week on Flyglinjen, which was quicker to move in to take up the route after Skyways. Flyglinjen also provides further indirect competition between Jönköping and Stockholm’s city airport Bromma with 10 weekly flights.
