Scandinavian Air Express

*

The Scandinavian Air Express started in the late 1920s as a co-operation between KLM - Royal Dutch Airlines and ABA - AB Aerotransport for the service between Scandinavia-France and Scandinavia-UK, routed via the Netherlands. Through a co-operation between ABA and Aero O/Y the Scandinavian Air Express was later operated between Sweden and Finland as an extension. Over the years other airlines participated in the joint operations, but the service was discontinued when WW2 started.
