I have used the Arlanda-Vilhelmina flight quite a lot, first with Skways and then Nextjet when they took over. Without such flights Vilhelmina and similar places in the north would feel even more isolated, I can only assume that the government does and will continue to subsidise whoever operates this and other similar services.

I hope so - otherwise it could be fly to Umea and then drive for three hours in the future!

While many people on this website are (to some extent) cheerleaders for their local airport, I have a personal interest in commercial passenger aviation at the smaller airports throughout Europe - I just find the smaller airlines and airports rather more interesting than the Heathrows, CDGs and Frankfurts of the world. Given your presumed location in Spain, I would be particularly interested in hearing your thoughts on whether Burgos and Ciudad Real will regain commercial passenger flights or if the new Murcia airport will open

I am very aware that some of the airports Nextjet flies to in Sweden and Finland have just one airline - I'm genuinely interested for non-commercial purposes in what will happen given Nextjet's financial situation and the possibility that the Swedish Govt introduces a departure tax on flights from Swedish airports, particularly around the small airports in Sweden
