About the airport

Umeå Airport's first flight took off in December 1961, but the airport was inaugurated in May 1962. Since then, the airport has continued to develop both in terms of its buildings and passenger numbers, but also due to the fact that many airlines have chosen to serve Umeå.

Umeå Airport has a unique location due its proximity to the centre of Umeå. Over the years, it has experienced a number of reconstructions and extensions, and during 2008 the airport underwent yet another comprehensive rebuild when the airport terminal was renovated.
