Douglas DC-7B of Transair Sweden at Copenhagen Airport in 1968
Transair Sweden (not to be confused with another Transair Sweden that operated between 2002–2003) began as Nordisk Aerotransport AB in 1950 with the purpose of flying newspapers from Stockholm to other locations in Sweden using Airspeed Oxford aircraft.
In 1953 passenger charters were begun using Douglas DC-3 and soon after the name was changed to Transair Sweden. In 1957 the Curtiss-Wright C-46 Commando cargo aircraft was introduced. Douglas DC-6 acquired from SAS were introduced in 1959.
Freight flights on behalf of SAS were begun to cities such as Malmo, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Amsterdam and Paris. In 1967 Boeing 727-134s were acquired but those were not kept very long. But a year later Transair was bought by the Svenska Handelsbank and financing was introduced to acquire once again jet aircraft. Shortly thereafter SAS took a majority holding in Transair Sweden and the airline was kept flying independently under its own colors taking tourists to Spain, the Canary Islands and other Mediterranean destinations. In 1981 SAS sold all the 727s and the employees were integrated into SAS.
