Umeå Airport is the seventh largest airport in Sweden, and is an important hub in the Norrland region. The airport’s first flight took place in December 1961, but it was inaugurated in May 1962. Since then, the airport has continued to develop in terms of both buildings and increases in passenger numbers, but also due to many airlines choosing to traffic Umeå.
