NextJet (Swedish airline)
 
From press reports, their finances seem to be less than ideal. Anyone have thoughts about what will happen to them and the tiny airports in Sweden / Finland that they serve (usually as sole airline) ?

Yes - I can use Google as well, so would be particularly nice to hear from those with some personal knowledge of Nordic aviation

I am resisting the temptation to tell you it's your stop next, but am only thinking it!

Sarcastic postings will get you nowhere.

You should be thankful for what you get and people giving your requests the time of day.

Do you want the directions to Coventry?

Nextjet's auditor has cast doubt on the airline's capacity to continue as a going concern - the Swedish press as well as some aviation websites not based in the Nordics have reported this widely as can be seen by searching on Google for news. I'm not trying to be sarcastic - I was hoping to encourage those who have familiarity with either Nextjet or aviation in the Nordic countries to give an opinion or make further informed comment beyond what's reported in the press

For what purpose?

Are you a journo trying to get information on the cheap?

It looks that way.

Not a journalist at all - if I was, it is unlikely that I would have been on this website for almost 9 years with 3,000 posts to my name - please see my back history of my posts if you have any doubt.

While many people on this website are (to some extent) cheerleaders for their local airport, I have a personal interest in commercial passenger aviation at the smaller airports throughout Europe - I just find the smaller airlines and airports rather more interesting than the Heathrows, CDGs and Frankfurts of the world. Given your presumed location in Spain, I would be particularly interested in hearing your thoughts on whether Burgos and Ciudad Real will regain commercial passenger flights or if the new Murcia airport will open

I am very aware that some of the airports Nextjet flies to in Sweden and Finland have just one airline - I'm genuinely interested for non-commercial purposes in what will happen given Nextjet's financial situation and the possibility that the Swedish Govt introduces a departure tax on flights from Swedish airports, particularly around the small airports in Sweden

I have used the Arlanda-Vilhelmina flight quite a lot, first with Skways and then Nextjet when they took over. Without such flights Vilhelmina and similar places in the north would feel even more isolated, I can only assume that the government does and will continue to subsidise whoever operates this and other similar services.

I hope so - otherwise it could be fly to Umea and then drive for three hours in the future!

Canberra + Harry - thank you for your comments

All - I really would like this to be a thread about Nextjet and regional airports in Sweden and Finland; it is why I posted after all. Could we possibly return to the main topic please ?

Nextjet operates many routes that are tenderd by the swedish goverment. The airline that ticks all boxes operational and legal etc. And who requests the less contribution in costs will win the routes for 4 years.. so.. he/she who takes the most commercial risk on very minimal and thin routes will win it... many many airlines have bitten the dust on this, one of the bigger was Skyways. List here.. and if you click on links you can reed some sad stories https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_defunct_airlines_in_Sweden
