Sweden’s BRA Braathens Regional Airlines has recruited Lars Resare as its new head of sustainability.

Resare has extensive experience and solid knowledge of driving aviation’s sustainability development. He has worked for many years at SAS and most recently comes from OKQ8. Resare takes up his post on 19 June.

In his role as head of sustainability, Resare will be part of the company’s efforts to transform its aviation activities to net-zero.

“For many years, BRA has been at the forefront and has had a great focus on changing aviation. After the pandemic, the ambition has been raised further both in terms of target image, strategy and rate of change. Domestic flights must become fossil-free by 2030 and international flights by 2045 at the latest,” said Ulrika Matsgård, CEO at BRA.

“Lars is a dream recruit for us. He is one of the Nordic countries’ most experienced in aviation’s sustainability development, with both breadth and depth in his approach and in his competence. I am very happy that he has chosen to accept to lead our sustainability work into the next phase.”

Resare said it was exciting to return to the aviation industry to once again contribute to the business-critical transformation required to continue aviation’s journey towards a lower climate impact.

“The goals have been set and now the full focus is on continuing to implement existing solutions and actively working on the development of solutions that have not yet been commercialized. The latter could, for example, involve using electricity stored in batteries or hydrogen as energy sources in the long term, ” said Resare.

BRA Braathens Regional Airlines, is based at Stockholm Bromma Airport and is Sweden’s largest domestic airline with 25 flight routes. BRA is owned by the Swedish investment company Braganza and AMF.
