Braathens (Sweden) applies for restructuring

Braathens in Sweden has folded, apparently. I don't know if this really is permanent and I can't recall which news outlet I read this in.

I wasn't sure if it deserved its own thread, but given that Norwegian is a Scandinavian airline I though a side mention would be ok.
I reckon it will be hard to bounce out of restructuring.

Before the announcement Braathens stored quite a large number of AvroJet aircraft at Norwich, where they're parked in a line along one of the perimeter fences, albeit it not in an area that would be accessible to the general public to view.

As of today, they are still there, stretching beyond the eyeline so it's actually quite difficult to tell how many there are - although it's at least nine.

On the Swedish language version of their webpage, Braathens last week announced that Amapola Flyg will operate the former BRA routes from Bromma to Malmö, Göteborg, Visby, Ängelholm, and Halmstad between June 15th and August 9th.

I would have liked that better if they could let me use my existing ticket but no such luck yet.
