The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

Transair Sweden logo.

Transair Sweden AB was a charter airline from Sweden that operated until 1981. It began as Nordisk Aerotransport AB in 1950 with the purpose of flying newspapers from Stockholm to other locations in Sweden using Airspeed Oxford aircraft. In 1953 passenger charters were begun using Douglas DC-3 and soon after the name was changed to Transair Sweden. In 1957 the Curtiss-Wright C-46 Commando cargo aircraft was introduced. Douglas DC-6 acquired from SAS were introduced in 1959.

From 1965 nine Douglas DC-7B were bought from Eastern Airlines and were added to the fleet for charter use and for flights during the civil war in Congo on behalf of the United Nations. Freight flights on behalf of SAS were begun to cities such as Malmo, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Amsterdam and Paris. In 1967 Boeing 727-134s were acquired but were not kept very long. But a year later Transair was bought by the Svenska Handelsbank and financing was introduced to acquire once again jet aircraft. Shortly thereafter SAS took a majority holding in Transair Sweden and the airline was kept flying independently under its own colors taking tourists to Spain, the Canary Islands and other Mediterranean destinations. In 1981 SAS sold all the 727s and the employees were integrated into SAS
