The number of passengers flying to and from Luleå Airport continues to rise. To meet this increase, the airport is undergoing an extensive refurbishment.
Phase 1 is complete. This involved a facelift for Gate 5, a new location for the airport’s information desk and the relocation of the existing café, which changed its name to Mat och Fika, in the arrival hall.
Phase 2 is now underway. This involves the most challenging and extensive change. The new entrance is beginning to take shape, the ceiling in the check-in area is being raised 15 metres, the security checkpoint is being moved one level up, and the floor replacement project on the upper level is in full swing.
All this is taking place alongside the day-to-day operations.
“The growth in traffic clearly shows that air travel plays a vital role in the region, and the refurbishment is necessary so that the airport can contribute to this growth. We hope our passengers understand that during some periods there may be longer queue times and changes in logistics. Even though we have only had positive responses, we would appreciate people getting to the airport a bit earlier than usual,” says Ann-Christin Viklund, airport director.
