Transwede Airways AB was a charter airline based at Göteborg Landvetter Airport in Landvetter, Härryda Municipality, near Gothenburg.[1] Transwede operated flights on wet lease agreements from London City Airport, as well as charter flights. The company was owned by Braathens Aviation. Transwede Airways had appointed a new CEO, Trygve Gjertsen, who started on 1 January 2007, taking over from Jimmie Bergqvist.

The inaugural flight from Stockholm-Arlanda Airport to London City Airport, numbered SK517, took place on 13 February 2006 under Scandinavian Airlines colors. This gave way to two daily flights, numbered SK517/518 and SK529/530, with the new Transwede livery, which is a variation of Malmö's.[2]

As of 31 March 2010 the airline has decided that all activities in the company will end as Transwede has not been operating during 2010.
