1993 & 1994 - Two important years for the development

Did you know that Örebro Airport celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2018?

The beginning of the 1990s was an important period for the airport. To start with, the runway was expanded and reached 2000 meters in 1993. A rebuilding of the terminal was also made in the same year, and a taxfree shop was installed. Before the end of the year we saw a takeover by SAS for the line to Copenhagen. They start to operate with four departures every day, flying with the FK50 aircrafts. This generated a major increase of passengers on this line.

In 1994 was the name of the airport changed to Örebro-Bofors. This was presented in a re-opening of the airport where the new business with SAS for the Copenhagen line was highly recognized. Jan Stenberg, former CEO of SAS, flew in and took part in the event (Picture above).

Today we have Star Alliance including SAS/LOT/BMI operating the flights to Copenhagen with two departures on all weekdays. For the weekend flights you can now book it at the special price of 998 SEK return. Departure on Friday afternoon and return to Örebro either Sunday night or Monday morning.
