In April, Ryanair will launch a flight route between Skellefteå and Gdansk.

The airline Ryanair has now decided to open the long-awaited direct route between Skellefteå and the Polish city of Gdansk. The service will start on April 2, 2024 and operate twice a week all year round. The line will be an important transport link for a growing Skellefteå.

– This is very positive news for residents, tourism and our growing business community. We are incredibly happy that Ryanair chooses to fly international traffic to and from Skellefteå, which provides increased accessibility and creates new opportunities for our communication with the outside world, which is important for our growth and development, says Skellefteå Airport’s CEO Robert Lindberg.

– The new route creates the long-awaited opportunity to present Poland as a perfect destination for all inhabitants of the northern part of Sweden. We are looking forward to being more present in the Västerbotten and Norrbotten regions with our marketing activities but we are also sure that more and more Polish tourists will come to explore this beautiful part of Sweden says Małgorzata Hudyma Director, Nordic Coutries Polish Tourism

The establishment in Skellefteå is Ryanair’s only direct international route in northern Sweden and involves two departures per week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, to and from the Polish city.

– This is further proof of the attractiveness of Skellefteå. In addition to new opportunities for tourist and business travel for our region, the establishment means that Polish individuals and companies can easily get to Skellefteå, which is positive, continues Robert Lindberg.

Gdansk is one of Poland’s largest and oldest cities and a popular tourist destination with its rich history and beautiful architecture. There is a broad cultural life, an impressive range of restaurants, various shopping centers and several nice beaches thanks to the proximity of the Baltic Sea.

– Gdansk has something for everyone. And thanks to the frequent traffic to and from Skellefteå and the fact that Lech Walesas is an international airport, there are also opportunities to easily move on to other destinations, says Robert Lindberg.

Traffic starts on Tuesday, April 2, 2024.

The route is operated on Tuesdays and Saturdays all year round.
