One of Sweden, Europe’s and the World’s first fossil- free airports
Skellefteå Airport is one of Sweden’s largest regional airports. The airport is owned by Skellefteå Municipality and before the pandemic, the airport had about 300,000 passengers per year. 2017 and 2018 were record years for the airport with more than 400,000 passengers.
The airport offers domestic scheduled flights with several daily departures to Stockholm, seasonal flights to Gothenburg as well as charter flights to Thailand, Rhodes, Crete, Turkey, Croatia, Spain and Andorra. In April 2022, scheduled flights to Poland will begin.
Green Flight Academy
Partly thanks to the investment in the 1MW power supply for electric
aviation, Green Flight Academy decided to establish in Skellefteå. The flight academy will be the worlds most sustainable flight school. It already has two electric aircrafts on site in Skellefteå with an option for eight more during 2022.
Fossil- free airports
Skellefteå Airport is one of Sweden, Europe’s and the World’s first fossil- free airports. In 2020, the airport had for the first time zero emissions of fossil carbon dioxide, according to the Airport Carbon and Emissions Reporting Tool (ACERT).
The strategic and operational work of becoming a fossil-free airport has in recent years been carried out purposefully through a transition to:
● Fossil-free heating with biofuel
● Fossil-free electricity consumption through certified green electricity
● Fossil-free fuels for vehicles through electricity and the biofuel HVO-100
