Braathens Regional changed its name to Braathens Regional Airways in March 2016 and together with Braathens Regional Aviation started operating all flights for the virtual airline BRA Braathens Regional Airlines uniting the previously separated brands of Malmö Aviation and Sverigeflyg.
Braathens Regional took delivery of its maiden ATR72-600 on Friday, November 6. SE-MKA (cn 1276) was originally destined for MASwings (MY, Kota Kinabalu) where it was to have become 9M-MYE on the Malaysian registry.
The turboprop is the first of five ATR72-600s the Swedish operator committed to as part of an order with Avions de Transport Régional (Toulouse Blagnac) which includes ten options. The new ATR72s will enable Braathens Aviation to replace its ageing fleet of twelve Saab 2000s while adding to its existing fleet of five ATR72-500s (all leased out to fellow BRA - Braathens Regional Airlinesaffiliates Kullaflyg and Gotlandsflyg.)

From 2018 the Swedish government is introducing an environment tax for aviation, each passenger has to pay an additional 80 SEK (8,30 €) for each flight to and from Sweden (and domestic flights), a return flight will cost 160 SEK (16,60 €). Long-haul flights will cost the passenger 280 SEK (29 €).
The tax will have a major effect on Swedish domestic flights, specialists expect 4% less air travel. Because these domestic flights are an important market for BRA, the airline has decided to freeze the 3,5 billion order for 5 CS100 and 5 CS300 jets from the Canadian manufacturer Bombardier.
The environmental tax has been fiercely criticized as the new C Series aircraft have a 35-40 percent lower emission per passenger kilometer than the older Avro RJ’s. The board of directors will extend the lease of the much noisier Avro RJ’s, and that will affect the people living near Stockholm Bromma airport.
The decision is a serious blow for Bombardier, which had huge costs to bring out the new C Series.
