Sweden’s first new airport in twenty years has been given a boost with the confirmation from Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) that they will operate direct flights from Denmark and the United Kingdom. Set to open in December 2019, Scandinavian Mountains Airport sits close to the Norwegian border between some of the region's best alpine ski resorts. Privately built by a consortium of 33 companies on the site of a former recreational airfield, the airport is set to generate significant interest in skiing breaks from outside the two countries. The closest slopes at Hundfjället are just 10 minutes away by bus, while shuttles will also operate to slopes at Tandådalen, Högfjället, Lindvallen, Trysil, Stöten and Kläppen. Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA) had previously announced five direct routes within Sweden to/from Stockholm Bromma, Göteborg, Malmö, Ängelholm, Växjö. Now, SAS has announced a total of four new return flights a week to and from the new airport.
