On October 1, Air Leap launches its first international route from Stockholm Bromma Airport when it starts flying to Oslo. However, there is no traffic to any great extent with only one departure per week in each direction.
Air Leap’s focus on Bromma Airport increases slightly when the airline on October 1 adds a foreign route to Oslo from Stockholm’s city airport. There will be departures from Oslo on Fridays and from Stockholm Bromma on Sundays with a Saab 340. Departure times are on Fridays from Oslo at 18.20 and from Bromma on Sundays at 12.25.
“We have heard requests from travelers to be able to get between the capitals during a weekend quickly, efficiently and affordably, and now it fits into our other program we run in Norway,” says Lars Hjorth Johansen, sales manager in Norway.
Air Leap already operates Oslo-Ørland and Oslo-Røros in Norway and currently has a route between Oslo and Stockholm Arlanda which is also operated with one departure per week in each direction and flies with a Saab 340. The main purpose of the route to Arlanda is probably to fly a Saab 340 to Arlanda on Friday night for technical maintenance during the weekend and then fly back to Oslo on Sunday and into the company’s Norwegian route network again.
Stockholm-Oslo is already flown today by SAS and Norwegian, which offer passengers several departures daily. However, both the companies fly from Arlanda and Air Leap’s Brommalinje to the Norwegian capital means a resumption of the connection to the Norwegian capital from Bromma since Flybe Nordic flew Bromma-Oslo for a period in 2012.
