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.

TUI invests heavily in travel from Skellefteå

The charter company TUI is significantly increasing its departures from Skellefteå Airport to the Greek island of Rhodes in 2023. During the period 19/5 – 16/6 and 4/8 – 22/9 2023, 13 departures will be available from Skellefteå Airport.

Travel to and from Skellefteå is growing. This is primarily due to the region’s expansive growth but also to increased travel demand following the pandemic. Growth combined with strong demand means different conditions for travel. Therefore, the charter operator TUI has decided to increase its departures from Skellefteå Airport by adding 13 new departures with 2,500 seats.

– We are very pleased that TUI has chosen to invest heavily in Skellefteå, where our geographical location combined with our growth makes us the perfect charter airport in northern Sweden. In addition, Rhodes is a very popular destination that we now give more people the opportunity to visit, says Skellefteå Airport’s CEO Robert Lindberg.

Next month, TUI will launch its winter season of direct flights to Gran Canaria and is now looking forward to offering travel options to the Mediterranean during the summer.

– Naturally, we want to be part of the exciting development that Skellefteå is undergoing and therefore we are incredibly pleased that we now have the opportunity to expand our offer from Skellefteå Airport with trips to Rhodes, says Ronja Jakobsson, Communications Officer at TUI.
