“Naturally, we are delighted and proud that we can now offer non-stop service to the wonderful capital of Russia. This shows that there is great interest in our region outside Sweden,” says Olle Sundin, airport director at Göteborg Landvetter Airport.
Swedavia - Göteborg Landvetter Airport, Göteborg & Co, Visit Sweden, the West Sweden Tourist Board and Business Region Göteborg are collaborating in the regional network Göteborg Access to develop route offerings and opportunities for travel to Gothenburg and western Sweden. Non-stop service to Moscow is another example of how this partnership has been productive.
