“Returning to the skies again allows us to do what we do best and take our customers on much-needed holidays,” said boss Johan Lundgren.
“I am really encouraged that we have seen higher than expected levels of demand with load factor of 84% in July with destinations like Faro and Nice remaining popular with customers. This increased flying will allow us to connect even more customers to family or friends and to take the breaks they have worked hard for.”
