Fritidsresor (Transpool) consisted of three businesses - a loss-making scheduled airline, a charter airline and the number two tour operator in Scandinavia, mainly selling overseas holidays to Scandinavians. The investment rationale was based on being able to turnaround the losses on the schedule airline and capitalise on the synergies between the tour operator and the charter airline.
