Blue1 Ltd is a Finnish airline owned by SAS Group, with its hub at Copenhagen Airport. Blue1 flies to around 28 destinations in Finland, Scandinavia and the rest of Europe. It carried over 1.7 millions de passagers en 2011. The airline is a member of Star Alliance and has its head office in Vantaa.
La compagnie a été créée en 1987 et a commencé des opérations en 1988 as Air Botnia, flying Embraer EMB-110 Bandeirantes on night cargo flights and on passenger services from Helsinki to Kauhajoki and Seinäjoki. It started to supplement its unpressurised Bandeirantes with leased British Aerospace Jetstream 31s in 1993, but cash flow problems in the summer of 1995 caused British Aerospace to repossess the Jetstreams and brought Air Botnia to the point of bankruptcy, with last minute negotiations needed to save the airline, which continued operations in a reduced scale. The airline was purchased by SAS Group in January 1998, with the new owners re-equipping the airline, replacing its Jetstreams with Saab 340s later that year, and receiving its first jets, Fokker F28 Fellowships in 1999. The elderly F28s were soon replaced as their high noise levels restricted operations, with Avro RJ85s being received in 2001, with its Saab 340s being replaced by larger Saab 2000s at the same time. Blue1 offers two service classes, Economy and Economy Extra (previously Blue1 Premium). Economy Class: Coffee and tea are included on all Blue1 operated flights. Sandwiches and other drinks are available for purchase from “Cafe1”. Flights with very short flight time may have reduced service. Economy Extra: Fast Track security and Business Class check-in is included where available.
Blue1 was the first network airline in Northern Europe to be granted ISO 14001 environmental certificate.
