BRA has a strong position at Visby Airport with routes to Stockholm Bromma, Malmö and Gothenburg, and in December they will further increase their offer when they start flying from Visby to Arlanda.
BRA is now launching its first regular flight to Stockholm Arlanda Airport when it will start flying to Sweden’s largest airport from Visby. From 13 December, BRA will fly twice every weekday from Gotland to Arlanda’s terminal 5 and on Sundays, there will be a departure in each direction. The new line for BRA will be shared, making it easier for travelers going to the Uppsala area, and partly for travelers traveling further out into the world from Arlanda.
“Our customers have requested the opportunity to also be able to fly with us to Stockholm-Arlanda. Partly it is customers who travel to and from the Uppsala area and partly it is customers who must travel further from Arlanda. It, therefore, feels really good that we now have the opportunity to satisfy this wish from our Gotland travelers “, says Sakarias Ronquist who is Product and Revenue Manager at BRA.
Departure time from Visby to Arlanda will be every weekday at 06.35 and 16.00 while the flights leave Arlanda at 08.30 and 18.00. On Sundays, the departure time is at 17.20 from Visby and at 18.45 from Arlanda. The flight time is estimated at 45 minutes and all flights will be performed with BRA’s ATR 72-600.
At present, SAS flies between Visby and Stockholm Arlanda all year round, while Norwegian flies on the route during the summer. In addition, Air Gotland flies through Air Leap from Visby to Bromma and with BRA’s decision to also start flying to Arlanda, competition increases further on the flights between Visby and Stockholm.
BRA, on the other hand, is doing well in the competition and the company states that it sees a strong development for the Visby market and states that it currently flies almost two-thirds of all passengers flying to and from Gotland. In September alone, BRA’s market share increased by 12 percent compared to August, according to Sakarias Ronquist at BRA.
