New and better aircraft There has been a lot of uncertainty around the flights between Arvidsjaur and Stockholm, both on the operator that would fly the route and the type of aircraft that would be used. A permanent solution eventually became a contract with ’ Nextjet ’ , the company who previously operated the route. The line is now served by a completely different type of aircraft, a Fokker F100, a jet-propelled, twin-engine passenger plane. So far so good. The airport staff has received a lot of positive feedback from its passengers that were especially pleased that there is no longer an extra stop in Lycksele, which means the flight time is reduced by one hour. - Many also think that the new jet is less noisy and that the comfort has improved, says Åsa Lidström , Arvidsjaur Airport . Availability has improved aswell as the flight now land at Arlanda’s Terminal four. - It is especially appreciated by those who have a connecting flight, says Åsa Lidström. The airline Flylapland, responsible for traf-
fic on the route, is pleased with the reactions they have received from their travelers. -The Staff at the Airport has been involved from the start and it is partially their credit that travelers are satisfied. Moreover, we see the value of the line for the region and try to provide the best possible conditions, says Sören Roos, consultant for Flylapland. The bigger size of the plane has increased loading capacity and better baggage handling than before. - A large part of our airline customers have connections to the automotive testing industry in the area, and often have important and sensitive baggage that they need to carry out their work. Nowadays we have much less problems with the handling of luggage, which feels extremely positive, concludes Sören.
