Flybe Nordic finalised; CPH-Bromma closed

Flybe Nordic to fly 12 Embraer E190s from October 28

Flybe has finalised its joint venture with Finnair. It will begin flying 12 Embraer E190 regional jets from October 28 on a number of European short haul routes. The planes will carry the Finnair livery but operate under the Flybe Finland (Flybe Nordic) operating certificate, crewed by Flybe Nordic staff.
The agreement will take the number of aircraft flown by Flybe Nordic to 28 – double the number flown when the business commenced operations in October 2011. Flybe is due to announce its interim results on November 8. Jim French, chairman and chief executive of Flybe Group, said: “This extension of our existing contract flying operations for Finnair is a key part of Flybe Nordic’s strategy, adding substantial scale while balancing Flybe Group’s overall risk.”
He added: “With this deal, 25% of the fleet under Flybe Group’s management will be deployed under contract flying arrangements. We believe there are many more similar opportunities to develop this side of the business.”
In related news, Flybe will close its route between Copenhagen and Stockholm’s Bromma airport, with the final flight due on November 2.
