Transwede Airways AB, trading as Transwede, was a charter airline based at Göteborg Landvetter Airport in Landvetter, Härryda Municipality, near Gothenburg.[1] Transwede operated flights on wet lease agreements from London City Airport, as well as charter flights. The company was owned by Braathens Aviation. Transwede Airways had appointed a new CEO, Trygve Gjertsen, who started January 1, 2007, taking over Jimmie Bergqvist.

The inaugural flight from Stockholm-Arlanda Airport to London City Airport, numbered SK517, took place on February 13, 2006, under Scandinavian Airlines colors. This has given place to two daily flights, numbered SK517/518 and SK529/530, with the new Transwede livery, which is a variation of Malmö's.[2]

As per 31 March 2010 the airline has decided that all activities in the company will end as Transwede has not been operating during 2010.
