  • ESNX - Arvidsjaur

  • Note: Essential information is written in bold face.


    Only about 5,000 people live in Arvidsjaur, but yet there is an international airport here. The main reason for this is that Arvidsjaur and nearby Arjeplog are important locations for the automotive industry – this is where new cars, buses and lorries are tested in a sub-polar winter climate. All the year round there are daily scheduled flights to Stockholm/Arlanda, but in the winter the airport comes alive with business jets and charter flights mainly to Germany.

    Until 2013, Arvidsjaur airport was also a base for the largest commercial flight school in Sweden, Scandinavian Aviation Academy, which had a large fleet of C172 aircraft based here. Finally, as Arvidsjaur is an important military location, military transport flights are common here, with aircraft both from the Swedish and international armed forces.

    The runway was extended from 2000 m to 2500 m in 2005. The runway has ILS in both directions. Note that depending on your simulator, default scenery has the old 2000 m runway, lacks TWY B, and only has ILS for RWY 30.
