About the partner

Norrköping Airport (NRK) was owned by Swedish Civil Aviation Authority until 2006. Since 1st of July 2006 it is own company, Norrköping Airport AB, owned by Norrköping municipality. Since 2006 it has worked with local business community (and the politicians) to develop NRK.

Role in the project

Airport has “business case Norrköping” that is presented to airlines, but NRK wants to further develop it and make it better with help of BALTIC BIRD. NRK has worked with RDF, so they have experience that can be shared with other project members. They have also participated in Routes Europe since they became own company, and can tell others about experiences.

NRK is close to other airports: Stockholm/ Skavsta, Linköping and Arlanda. NRK must develop traffic and have good selection of flights to attract travelers in the region.

Through BALTIC BIRD project NRK hopes to get new ideas and new contacts, both from bigger airports and from new airlines.

Type of organisation

Non-governmental and non-profit registered association

About the partner

The Mid Nordic Committee has for more than 30 years worked for better communications between the Mid Nordic Region, from Trondheim (Sör Tröndelag), through Sweden (Östersund, Sundsvall) and in to Finland (Vasa, Seinäjoki, Jyävskylä) and towards Russia. It wants to show that air transport flows from West to East and vice versa in peripheral regions are possible and that there is a market for it, not only for flights going south/ north towards the Nordic capitals.

Role in the project

Since the Committee has started the NECL II-project, developing midnordic east-west transport corridor, there will be a linkage between both projects to enable prompt knowledge transfer.

The Mid Nordic Committee will specifically benefit of BALTIC BIRD by strengthening of transnational transport flows between Nordic States in East/ West/ East and South/ North/ South direction leading to extended business possibilities etc.

About the partner

Karlstad Airport (KSD) is the most recent built airport in Sweden. Since December 2010 it is owned and managed by Karlstad Airport AB, with Karlstad municipality as main owner. Enabling regions to improve accessibility by air is of vital interest to them.

Role in the project

One strategic goal of KSD is to develop direct flights to heavy populated areas and hubs in Europe together with other regional airports with the aim to feed flight operators own flight system with PAX volumes.

They will work with alliances and partnerships to increase and ensure successful region/ airport. New flight connections between KSD and other European Cities are of great interest to them.

The experiences from a new route between KSD and Barcelona can be very useful for BALTIC BIRD to develop new routes and destinations. They have many years of experience cooperating with local, regional, national and international tourist organisations.
