A safe start to the flight
The health and safety of our passengers is our top priority –
together we help each other to reduce the spread of infection.
Skellefteå Airport monitors developments on a daily basis and is in continuous contact with the Public Health Agency of Sweden and other relevant authorities. At Skellefteå Airport we follow the European Aviation Safety Agency’s guidelines, which were developed to reduce the spread of infection in conjunction with the Covid-19 pandemic. You may therefore see that we have different recommendations at the airport than those in effect in Sweden otherwise.
We want you to wear a facemask in the terminal, and we remind everyone through signs and to maintain social distances.
We encourage passengers to check in at home and use self-service machines for baggage, security screening and boarding.
To avoid crowding, we recommend that you see off or greet passengers outside the terminal.
Weight, dimensions and allowance of hand baggage always vary between airlines. Always check with your airline.
Lost or delayed baggage
Report lost, delayed or damaged baggage to Airline representative at the information desk in the terminal. When your baggage has arrived, they will contact you to arrange a time of delivery or pickup.
You can track your lost baggage when you have received a refrence number/PIR recipt (e.g SFTSK12345).
Weight and dimension
What is the charge for excess baggage? Contact your airline or tour operator. Weight, dimension and price for excess baggage is depending on airline, destination and ticket category.
Whom do I contact if the damage is not discovered until I get home? Contact your airline or tour operator.
From April 29, 2010 there are new rules according to the EU Regulation 300/2008.
You no longer need to show ID card when you check in your baggage. You must have a boarding pass to go through security. The airlines can make an exception to parent/guardian of unaccompanied children and persons with reduced mobility.
Note: Please be aware that other EU countries may have stricter rules than these.
Check of personal identity
If you are traveling to an EU country you can use the national identity card (you can also use the passport). The national ID card is also valid for travel to Norway, Switzerland, Iceland and Lichtenstein.

Security check point
All passengers must pass a security check point before flying. The purpose of the security check point is to make flying as safe as possible. Some items are banned in the so-called restricted areas at the airport and onboard the aircraft, these items are not allow through the security check point.
Fly through security
Have your boarding pass ready to show when you reach the security check point. Your passport is not needed at this point.
- If you have any liquids in your carry on baggage, please take them out of the baggage and place them in a small plastic bag. Bottles containing more than 100 ml are not allowed in your carry-on baggage.
- You also need to show any liquid medication, baby food or special dietary products.
- You need to remove coats or jackets.
- Remove laptops and other electronic equipment of similar size from your bags.
Are you unsure what you are allow to bring in your baggage, please visit Transportstyrelsens.
Do not carry mobile phones, keys, coins and other small metal objects on you. Put them in your hand luggage before you reach security check point. That way the detector in the security arch will not go off when you pass through, and it will be smoother for all passengers.
Place your carry-on baggage on the conveyor belt to the X-ray machine and then proceed through the metal detector.
Any prohibited items in your possession will be taken from you.
Restriction of liquids in hand luggage
New EU regulations for airport security were introduced on 6 November 2006, for all flights from Swedish airports, i.e. both domestic and international and to destinations outside the EU. The new regulations restrict the amount of liquid that is allowed in the hand luggage on the aircraft. Baggage that is checked in is not affected by these new regulations. It will still be possible to purchase tax free goods after security control.
The airport opens 1 hour before the first flight and closes 45 minutes after the last arrival.
On days with no flights the airport is closed. During closing hours the gate to the airport is also locked and it is not possible to access parking areas.
If you feel hungry or just want to grab something to drink before your trip, we recommend a visit to the airport restaurant Take Off.
The restaurant is located in the departure hall and offers hot food from an a la cart menu. Why not try souvas, a classic dish from Swedish Lapland made from smoked reindeer meat. You can also buy candy, snacks and drinks here. Perhaps you will find something to bring along and read on the flight from their wide range of newspapers and magazins.
During the time SAS’s timetable is affected by the Covid-19 pandemi and the restaurant at the airport will be closed. For more information please contact Take Off.
