SWEDEN is home to a third regional airline to be established by local entrepreneurs to maintain and enhance links to the country”s capital Stockholm. Local entrepreneurs in Umea, the largest city in northern Sweden, have joined forces with Falcon Air to establish a twice-daily service to Stockholm's Arlanda Airport. The flights will be launched from May 3, using a Boeing 737-300s, and the service will operate under the name Umeaflyg. This is the third time that local Swedish investors have joined forces to create their own airline and force down prices. The previous start-ups, Gotlandsflyg from the Baltic Island of Gotland, and Kullaflug, from the southern city of ”ngelholm, have proved successful and the Umeaflyg backers are confident that the new venture will be equally so, despite competition on the route from SAS Scandinavian Airlines (nine times daily) and Malm” Aviation (five times daily).
