Swedish-based Braarhens Regional Airlines has announced that it is suspending all of its flights from 6 April 2020 until June. Although attempting to continue operations, new government guidelines have created a significant reduction in passengers.
The airline has been gradually reducing its network, terminating several regional routes on 23 March including connections from Stockholm Bromma to Ronneby, Kristianstad and Halmstad. However, with unnecessary travel now discouraged, the Braathen decided to cut its network further.
The airline commented that “We at [Braathens Regional Airlines] have done everything we can to maintain our air traffic for Sweden and for our customers. In the past week, we have struggled with only a few flights, but due to the Government’s and the Public Health Authority’s strong call for the Swedish population not to travel inland, we do not have any customers left who fly with us and therefore need to further adapt our traffic to the new conditions”.
