Arvidsjaur Airport (IATA: AJR, ICAO: ESNX) is situated 13 km (8.1 mi) from Arvidsjaur town in Sweden and had 42,664 passengers in 2009.

The runway is longer than most in the northern interior of Sweden, and this allows international charter jet planes. This was a major reason winter car testing was established in the region around Arvidsjaur, now an important part of the local economy.

Airlines and destinations[edit]

Eurowings Seasonal: Hannover[3]
Regional Jet Stockholm–Arlanda (PSO) (begins 15 September 2018)[4]

Daily flights have been operated to Stockholm, but all flights were cancelled as the Nextjet operator got bankrupt on 16 May 2018. A new operator is expected to be operating around August or September 2018. Until then the main alternative airports are Luleå or Skelefteå airports.

During the winter months, FlyCar GmbH in cooperation with TUIfly and other airlines offers direct flights from the German airports Hannover, Frankfurt-Hahn, Stuttgart and Munich as well as from Birmingham to Arvidsjaur in Swedish Lapland.
