In time for the summer season, Ving is launching a welcome new air link in the form of non-stop charter service to Cyprus from Umeå Airport.
Starting April 28, the tour operator Ving, in partnership with Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA), will offer departures every Friday from early to late summer to the popular holiday island of Cyprus from Umeå Airport. The route is a welcome addition to the airport’s existing range of charter options.
“We are really pleased about being able to supplement the range of options at Umeå Airport with another charter destination. The post-pandemic recovery continues, which is naturally very gratifying. There is a pent-up need to travel again, and we see strong demand from our passengers for flights to warmer places this summer”, says Bengt-Ove Lindgren, Airport Director at Umeå Airport.
The first flight takes off from Umeå Airport for Cyprus on April 28, and weekly departures will continue until June 23. After a pause in July, Ving will resume service on August 4 and fly until September 29.
“It feels really great that we can offer an exciting new destination from Umeå Airport – Cyprus, which we know people have wanted for a long time. There is a great desire to travel both in the short term and over the longer term, and right now we see good booking volumes from Umeå,” says Claes Pellvik, Head of Communications at Ving.
This winter, Ving offers non-stop service with Jettime to Gran Canaria from Umeå Airport once a week until April 7. Tickets are already on sale for next winter as well as for flights this summer to Cyprus: www.ving.se.

Swedavia’s work for net-zero aviation
Swedavia has carried out ambitious climate work for many years. All ten of its airports achieved the goal of zero fossil carbon dioxide emissions from their own operations by year-end 2020. Swedavia also works actively to promote the switch to sustainable aviation fuel and has the goal that five per cent of all fuel used for refuelling at Swedish airports shall be fossil-free by 2025. Swedavia’s climate transition work and its pioneering work to operate climate-smart airports have won international awards, and in 2021 the trade organisation Airports Council International (ACI) named Stockholm Arlanda Airport Eco-Innovation Airport of the Year.
Swedavia wants to help passengers reduce the carbon footprint from their own journey and contribute to the transition to net zero aviation and is thus working in collaboration with the Fly Green Fund. Swedavia offers all travellers flying from one of its airports the option of buyingsustainable aviation fuel for their entire journey or parts of it via flygreenfund.se/swedavia.
