SAS LINK is getting closer to start there operations.
In all silence, the new SAS LINK airline is starting to get ready for traffic. During the weekend, we were able to get a first look at an Embraer E195 painted in SAS colors at Norwich Airport.
The aircraft has previously flown for Flybe in England and has been stationed now for two years since Flybe went bankrupt at the start of the pandemic.
The aircraft is 14 years old with registration training SE-RSK, which is a “long-range performance aircraft” in that class, which means an almost completely flexible route network within Europe from its base at Copenhagen Airport. According to rumors, several similar aircraft from Flybe are expected to receive SAS colors and get ready for takeoff during the first half of 2022.
We know very little about SAS Link, what we do know is that the company will have Swedish-registered aircraft but with a stationing at Kastrup, Copenhagen Airport. However, it has previously been stated that they will replace the outgoing fleet of Boeing 737-700s, but the Boeing 737-700s that are still active within SAS have Oslo Gardermoen as a base.
So where we will see these planes operate is unclear for now, as the mystique continues.
