Terror attacks could delay flight launch

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.


Police raid law firm linked to Fly Me

Lawyer Staffan Edh has resigned from law firm Hamilton in Gothenburg following speculation about his role on the Fly Me affair.

Police raided the offices of the law firm on Friday. One of the reasons for the raid was a client account not included in Fly Me’s accounts, which was controlled by Edh and Chairman of the Board, Björn Olegård.

No other board members had access to the account at the law firm, SVT reports.

Staffan Edh is a board member of Fly Me Sweden, which recently went bankrupt, and parent company Fly Me Europe. On Wednesday Hamilton announced that it was to look into Edh’s role in the bankruptcy.

“I think it is the right decision on his part,” said Hamilton’s CEO Mikael Wahledow.
