Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA) has continued its fleet expansion with the takeover of a new Airbus A320. The airline's 21st aircraft, equipped with CFM engines, was received in Malmö on Tuesday and will be used primarily for charter flights between Scandinavia and southern Europe, particularly for Apollo customers.

In spring 2023, BRA launched a new segment for charter flights. The first flight for Ving took place in April 2023, and flights for Apollo began in October of the same year. In addition to domestic and charter flights, BRA also offers ACMI services and flies on behalf of other airlines. Two ATR 72-600s have been stationed in Vienna since April and fly for Austrian Airlines.

This strategic expansion is an important step in BRA's growth plans as a charter service provider. Passengers can look forward to modern cabin amenities and increased comfort. The aircraft, registered as SE-RGF, was extensively modernized before delivery and leased from DAE Capital.

“We are very pleased to welcome our seventh Airbus aircraft,” said Fredrik Matseng, Chief Operating Officer at BRA. “With this addition we can further expand our range of charter flights and ACMI services.” BRA’s fleet now includes three Airbus A320s, four Airbus A319s and 14 ATR 72-600s.
