Your Private Jet to Umea Airport

Umea is the largest city in northern Sweden’s Norrland region and home to its second largest airport after Luleå. Umea has a major university, numerous museums, a well-developed music scene, and is an important port on the Gulf of Bothnia, representing only a few of the reasons why private jet charter to Umea Airport is attractive to both business and leisure travellers.

Umea Airport History

Umea Airport was built in 1961 in the city’s Alvik district with its official inauguration in May 1962. Prior to this, aircraft took off and landed on a grass runway near Nordmaling, about 50 kilometres from the current location. At a mere 5 kilometres, no other airport in Sweden is as close to its city centre as Umea Airport. Since its opening, restructuring and modernisation work has kept the airport up to date. Today Umea Airport welcomes over a million passengers on more than 24,500 flights.

A charter jet to Umeå is the most enjoyable and convenient means of arriving in Sweden’s beautiful "City of Birches." When fire devastated the town in 1888, birch trees were planted along wide avenues to prevent future fires from spreading. There are now about 3,000 birches in Umeå, giving the city its unique character and nickname. In addition to these beautiful white barked trees, the city’s many parks offer the opportunity to reflect while enjoying the sights and sounds of nature.

In the case of Umedalen Sculpture Park, it also serves as a museum, joining Gammlia Open Air Museum, Bildmuseet (a museum of contemporary art), and "Guitars – the Museum" as the city’s most visited attractions.
