Malmö Aviation is a regional airline based in Malmö, Sweden.[2] It operates scheduled services within Sweden from Stockholm Its main base is Malmö Airport, with a hub at Stockholm-Bromma Airport.[3]

History[edit]

Malmö Aviation was sold to CityAir Scandinavia on 11 February 1992. A new company Malmö Aviation Schedule was formed on 16 April 1993 under the ownership of Wiklund Inter Trade. Braathens of Norway acquired full control in August 1998 and in early 1999 integrated Braathens Sweden (formerly Transwede) into Malmö Aviation. In December 2001 it became an independent airline owned by Braganza AS/Bramora. This was the result of the Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) acquisition of Braathens in which Malmö Aviation, for legal reasons, was not included. It is wholly owned by Braathens Aviation and has 500 employees (at March 2007).[3] At the end of 2015, Malmö Aviation flew under the ICAO code of its owner airline, Braathens Aviation, ending the use of the Scanwing callsign.
