Norrköping Airport (IATA: NRKICAO: ESSP) is an airport situated around 3 km from the city center of Norrköping, Sweden. In 2010, it had 115 660 passengers, which represented an increase of 16% compared to the previous year.

History[edit]

The airport was founded in 1934. It had the highest number of passengers in the 1980s, and has declined since. The connection to Stockholm was closed down in 2001 because of improvements in highway connections to Stockholm, and train connection to Arlanda (so passengers planning to fly from Arlanda could use the train instead of an expensive air connection).

Airlines and destinations[edit]

As of May 2012, Flybe Nordic was the only airline to fly scheduled services from the airport. There are also several charter airlines flying from Norrköping Airport to different destinations in collaboration with charter operators. There are also cargo flights.
