Scadinavian Mountains Airport

New airport being built on the Norway/Sweden border to host ski-centric leisure flights, and due to open in December 2019
Has anyone heard of who might fly to this airport ? From the website it looks like the major building works are substantially complete and it's now well into the fitting-out stages so being ready to handle passengers in December 2019 certainly seems possible. I'm guessing that one or more of the TUI airlines is a strong candidate but nothing appears to be on sale via the usual travel agencies. Was thinking that either now or fairly soon, ski holidays for winter 2019/2020 will start to go on sale.

Must admit, it's the first I've heard of this. First impressions:
The website looks short on detail and a bit amateurish. Should have run the English language bit past a native speaker.
This is just a pet hate of mine, but I don't like the name 'Scandinavian Mountains Airport' as it's in English.
It'll be interesting to see how flights will be marketed. While probably nobody outside Dalarna knows where Salen is, 'Scandinavian Mountains Airport could be anywhere between Stavanger and the Finnish / Russian border!

As a Brit in Sweden Ive had an interest in this airport. Salen is well known in Sweden. Id expect BRA will operate there. I heard that EasyJet were considered too. They operated a Are-Gatwick route this winter so could be possible.

Interesting, I am UK based but go to Sweden twice a month. I guess this airport is mainly geared around attracting the weekend ski break market from the Nordic cities (and I guess this will give BRA some usage for their planes during the winter weekends).

Not sure it is going to be the next big destination in terms of ski traffic from the UK or Holland. Sweden is generally a lot colder and more expensive than the Alps during the ski season.
