Norrköping Airport (IATA: NRK, ICAO: ESSP) is an airport situated around 3 km from the city center of Norrköping, Sweden. In 2013, it had 109 160 passengers, which represented a decrease of 1.7% compared to the previous year, making Norrköping Airport the 22nd busiest airport in Sweden.

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).
