The airline Ryanair has decided to establish domestic traffic between Skellefteå Airport and Stockholm Arlanda two days a week. The airline means new alternatives for travel while improving accessibility to and from Skellefteå.
The airline Ryanair has previously been based at Skavsta Airport in Nyköping, but in May the airline decided to move its base to Stockholm Arlanda.
The decision involved 22 new routes to and from Stockholm Arlanda and among these also two domestic routes to Gothenburg and Malmö.
Ryanair now chooses to continue to expand by starting to operate the Skellefteå – Stockholm Arlanda route, thereby re-establishing its presence at Skellefteå Airport after a few years’ absence.
- The development that is now taking place in the Skellefteå region is unparalleled throughout Europe, and for us to be able to cope with the strong growth that is taking place, good communications to the outside world are required. The flight infrastructure is absolutely crucial for our region’s continued expansion as the distances to Stockholm or other cities are long. Ryanair’s establishment provides expanded opportunities for private individuals and businesses to travel to or from Skellefteå, which is of course gratifying, says Robert Lindberg, CEO of Skellefteå Airport.
From 3 December, Ryanair will operate the Stockholm Arlanda – Skellefteå – Stockholm Arlanda route twice a week on Mondays and Fridays. The flights are adapted to both weekly commuting business trips such as weekend tourism to or from Skellefteå.
- Over the years, the Skellefteå region has lost large passenger volumes to other airports due to the competitive conditions that have existed there, which has been very sad. We most recently showed in 2017 and 2018 that the market exists for over 400,000 annual travelers and we hope through this establishment that companies and private individuals will again choose Skellefteå, says Robert Lindberg.

Aalborg, Alicante, Banja Luka, Barcelona, Bologna, Brussels
