HistoryEdit

The airline was originally formed in 1985 as Transwede Airways operating both charter and scheduled flights to destinations around Europe. In 1996 the charter part of the airline was taken over by the Swedish tour operator Fritidsresor and was renamed Blue Scandinavia. Following the acquisition of Fritidsresor by Thomson in 1998 the airline was rebranded as Britannia Airways. After Preussag (TUI) acquired the Thomson Group in 2000 the airline was rebranded as TUI fly Nordic in 2005.

In 2015 the TUI Group announced that all five of its airline subsidiaries would be rebranded as TUI Airlines, whilst keeping their separate Air Operators Certificate, taking about three years to complete. As of 2017, most aircraft has been repainted and rebranded with the new “Dynamic Wave” livery and name.
