Flybe Nordic to take over many AY routes

Flybe Nordic, the joint venture between UK regional carrier Flybe (BE) and Finnair (AY), will take on about one-third of the Finnish flag-carrier’s European services to cut costs and improve its financial position.

From Oct. 28, Flybe Nordic will operate AY’s 12 Embraer E-190 regional jets on a range of AY’s short-haul sectors, taking advantage of the joint venture company’s lower cost base.

This would affect a fairly large number of current AY destinations such as WAW, MAN, GVA... Of course it will remain to be seen how this affects Oneworld products such as RTWs.

Bad news unless Flybe will join oneworld.

Good news if Finnair could be saved from invissible bankruptcy..

There's a thread on this over at Finnair Plus forum:


At least until now the Finnair AY3??? flights operated by Flybe have been treated like Finnair's own flights e.g. re: points. I guess this would mean that they will be exactly like Finnair flights in other aspects as well?
