Swedish low-cost airline FlyMe could postpone the launch of its new line from Stockholm to London as a result of Thursday's terror attacks.

The company, which had planned to operate its first flight from Stockholm Arlanda to London Gatwick on October 3rd, says that the start date is now uncertain.

FlyMe said in a press release on Monday that earlier estimates of passenger volumes were now uncertain.

"The events in London are terrible and could potentially have an effect on people's travel," said FlyMe managing director Fredrik Skanselid.

"For a small start-up company like FlyMe it is extremely important to have as much up-to-date information as possible, before we start new routes. At the moment we consider that our previous calculations of this market could change," he said.

The company's statement also said that passengers who have already booked trips to London would be contacted by FlyMe.
