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.

Strong growth for Skellefteå Airport

The number of passengers travelling to or from Skellefteå Airport has recovered quickly after the corona pandemic. The traffic statistics for August 2022 show a growth in the number of domestic passengers of +16.7% compared to the same month in 2019.

In August 2022, 22,005 domestic passengers flew to or from Skellefteå Airport, which is an increase of 3,152 passengers or 16.7 percent compared to the same month in 2019. This means that Skellefteå Airport has had more domestic travellers than in 2019 since April.

  • Skellefteå’s growth is of course the biggest factor in our rapid recovery, but the statistics are also a testament to Skellefteå Airport’s importance for passenger transport to and from the region,” says the airport’s CEO Robert Lindberg.

Compared to 2019, there are more operators and more destinations. SAS continues to operate daily flights to and from Stockholm-Arlanda, but in addition, both BRA and Ryanair have established themselves at the airport and a new route to Karleby-Jakobstad in Finland started in August.

  • There is a great interest in Skellefteå and due to the regional growth the need for good air connections is increasing.
    We are actively working to develop the airport for the future with a wider range of departures and destinations,” says Robert Lindberg.
