Finnish regional carrier Finncomm Airlines has begun a major expansion effort with the delivery of its first jet, an ex-Swiss International Air Lines Embraer ERJ-145. The aircraft is the first of a planned fleet of five ERJ-145s, and will be operated between Helsinki and Stuttgart in Germany in co-operation with Finnair and Golden Air of Sweden. Until now, Finncomm has mainly operated Saab 340s and 2000s for Golden Air on domestic services in southern Finland from Helsinki. In addition, it operates two Mitsubishi Mu-2s under the West Bird Aviation brand for charter flights.
