Road work!

The Swedish Transport Administration will reinforce road 774 from the intersection with road 364 (Burträskvägen) to approx. 100 m south of the entrance to the airport. The work begins in June and takes a winter break on 9/30. Traffic will be diverted to E4. Read more on the Trafikverket’s website here:–ygplats-orrbacken-forstarkning-av-vag/#om_projektet

Between August 7 and August 18, the Swedish Transport Administration will work on changing the asphalt on the E4 south of Bureå. It will be between 06:00 and 20:00 in the evening and it will also mean that it will be more difficult to get to the place. The traffic will be regulated with either pilots or traffic lights. Lanes will be closed while the work is in progress. So you have to count on waiting times. We would like to encourage travelers to plan their journey and start in good time for the airport. It is also important to take into account those who work on the roads and keep the speed down.

Direct flights from Skellefteå to Gran Canaria

The charter companies TUI and Ving have decided to re-establish charter flights from Skellefteå Airport to the popular holiday resort of Gran Canaria. The trips that are in high demand will start on 19/12 2022 and last until 3/4 2023.

During the corona pandemic, charter trips have been difficult to implement, this has led to a large pent-up need for travel to popular destinations. During the spring, travel to and from Skellefteå increased, which is also reflected in the demand for charter travel.
Due to this, the tour operators TUI and Ving have decided to jointly offer charter trips to the Spanish tourist destination Gran Canaria.

The flights will start on 19 December -2022 and run every week until 3 April -2023

– This is very good news, we know that charter trips to Gran Canaria are incredibly popular and in demand, so I am completely convinced that this charter series will be a great success, says Robert Lindberg, CEO of Skellefteå Airport

– Skellefteå is growing and we obviously want to be part of that development. It feels incredibly fun to now be able to expand our winter program, which we already have to Thailand, with direct flights to Gran Canaria. Gran Canaria is a very popular winter destination so it is of course gratifying that we can now offer the people of Skellefteå this opportunity. Says Ronja Jakobsson, Communicator at TUI

– Ving will for the first time offer charter flights from Skellefteå to Gran Canaria for the coming winter. The local market in the Skellefteå region is growing strongly and Ving obviously wants to contribute to an increased range of travel alternatives from Skellefteå and Norrland, says Christine Tötterman at Ving.
