Braathens Leasing has placed a firm order for 10 Bombardier CSeries airplanes taken options on an additional 10, raising the Canadian airframer's backlog to 100 CSeries firm orders and giving it a much-needed boost since inking its last CSeries order some 15 months ago.
The $665 million deal with Braathens Leasing, a member of Braathens Aviation of Sweden, covers the acquisition of 5 Bombardier CS100 and 5 CS300 mainline jetliners. Options for 10 additional CSeries airplanes, if converted to firm orders, would raise the amount to about $1.37 billion.
The twinjets will be operated by Braathens Aviation member, Malmo Aviation (TSW) from the regional airline's base at the Bromma-Stockholm City airport outside of downtown Stockholm.
Malmo Aviation (TSW), which operates a fleet of BAE Systems Avro RJs, intends to renew its fleet and explore new business opportunities with its CSeries airplanes starting in 2014, said Bombardier.
"Bromma, being a city airport, has very strict noise regulations, as well as a short runway," noted Braathens Aviation (CEO) Knut Solberg.
"We have been very focused on noise, emissions, fuel consumption and runway performance in our decision for a new airplane type. With the CSeries airplane, we found exactly what we were looking for. The CSeries airplane promise excellent runway performance, noise levels which are less than half those of any similarly-sized airplane currently in production, as well as unsurpassed environmental credentials."
The transaction increases firm orders for the CSeries family of airplanes to 100, including 38 CS100 and 62 CS300 airplanes, and raises the number of CSeries airplane customers to four.
Other customers that have ordered the CSeries include Frontier Airlines (FRO) parent, Republic Airways, which ordered 40 CS300 airplanes some 15 months ago; Lufthansa (DLH), which holds a firm order for 30 CS100 airplanes that are destined for its Swiss International Air Lines (CSR) subsidiary; and Lease Corporation International Group, which ordered 17 CS300 and three CS100 airplanes.
Additionally, the CSeries airplane program includes options for 100 airplanes.
The 110-seat CS100 airplane is scheduled to enter revenue service in 2013, followed by the 130-seat CS300 airplane in 2014.
January 2012: Finnair (FIN) has started code sharing on Malmö Aviation (TSW) services from Stockholm Bromma to Malmö.
November 2012: To avoid bankruptcy, (SAS) is selling its Norwegian regional operator, Wideroe ((IATA) Code: WF, based at Bodo airport (BOO)). Wideroe is of interest to Malmö Sturup (MMX) based Braathens Aviation. This aviation holding group has declared its interest in Wideroe as a third potential buyer after Flybe (BEE) and a group of Wideroe pilots (FC). Braathens Aviation already owns Golden Air (Sweden) (DC, Trollhättan Vänersborg (THN)), Malmö Aviation (TSW) and Sverigeflyg, a holding company that operates six virtual regional carriers in Sweden.
April 2013: Malmö Aviation (TSW) commenced operations on the 1,700 km route from Umeå (UME) in northern Sweden, to Prague (PRG) on 26 April. The airline operates twice-weekly services on the route, which is currently its only international service. Avro RJ100s with 112 seats are deployed on the route. Last year, Umea airport reported traffic growth of +3% to 983,500 passengers. This summer, the airport’s only other scheduled international service will be a weekly Norwegian (NWG) flight to Alicante.
September 2013: Malmö Aviation (TSW) began marketing year-round services between Malmo (MMX) and Visby (VBY) on August 27th. The short 387 km sector, which was originally seasonal, is now operated by NextJet, 3x-weekly, using Saab 340s. Malmö Aviation (TSW) also offers services to Stockholm-Bromma from its Malmö base. The regional airline also added flights from Stockholm Bromma (BMA) to Östersund (OSD) on September 2nd. The 466 km sector is being offered up to four times daily (though no flights on Saturday), and is operated by Braathens (BRT) Regional and its Saab 2000s.

September 2014: Swedish company, Braathens (BRT) Aviation has told Bombardier (BMB) it no longer wants to be the launch operator of the CSeries 110 to 169-seat airliner.
Braathens (BRT)’s domestic unit, Malmo Aviation (TSW), said it was the planned launch operator. But in its 2nd-quarter/1st-half financial results statement, Braathens (BRT) said “increased uncertainty” about the CSeries program and the possibility of a further delay of entry into service (EIS) has prompted it to reconsider.
“An engine-related incident on one of the CSeries test airplanes was reported by Bombardier (BMB) in late May. It has subsequently emerged that this may cause another delay to the CSeries introduction. We have informed (BMB) that we will not assume the role of formal launch operator of the airplane type. Due to increased uncertainty, we are discussing other possible changes to the airplane delivery schedule with (BMB),” Braathens (BRT) said.
Although (BMB) had not made public that Braathens (BRT) was the CSeries launch operator, this announcement by a customer is another setback for the program, which has seen delays, weak customer demand, and a failure of the Pratt & Whitney (PRW) geared turbofan engine on one of its flight test airplanes during ground maintenance tests.
