Past and present
Regular traffic at Sagadal Airport (as South Lapland Airport was then called) began in the early 1970s with two flights every weekday along the Vilhelmina-Strömsund-Sundsvall route. The runway has been expanded on a few occasions and the number of flights has been increasing since then.
Today, about 16,000 passengers pass through South Lapland Airport every year, a number which will increase in the not too distant future. The airport has plans to expand within the coming years, and become equipped with a new runway. There are also plans of hosting direct flights to and from abroad.
