BRA's reorganisation plan complete.....

Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA) Airbus A319 takes off from Bromma
The reorganisation plan that Swedish regional carrier, Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA) has been working on since 19th October last year was approved by the creditors and decided in Solna District Court on 16th February this year. The judgment has now gained legal force. The purpose of the reconstruction has thus been achieved and the company has created long-term sustainable financial conditions to secure the business. This good news means that BRA is now putting the reconstruction behind it and returning to normal operations.

Ulrika Matsgård, CEO of BRA said "The fact that we have reached the goal of the company reorganisation is very gratifying news for customers, employees and partners who have been both supportive and patient throughout this process. We now look forward to continuing our important work to offer more sustainable, punctual travel opportunities with a high level of service, both domestically in Sweden and throughout Europe together with tour operators and other partners." 

During the reconstruction process, BRA has had a strong focus on developing and improving its operations and strengthening its long-term financial conditions. Both customer and supplier agreements have been renegotiated, while measures to strengthen profitability have been initiated. In addition, the owners contribute a new share capital of SEK 114 million.

Per G. Braathen, Chairman and owner of BRA, said: "We are proud to have flown passengers and contributed to keeping the whole of Sweden alive for over 25 years – the ambition is to continue to do so for at least another 25 years. Braathens Regional Airlines now has very good opportunities to continue to preserve the aviation infrastructure and accessibility in Sweden, while at the same time actively driving our important sustainability work forward. I would like to extend a warm thank you to everyone who has supported us in this process."
