Abstract [en]

In northern Sweden the distances are great, which make the air transportation a major key for the accessability since there are lack of alternative means of transportation. In 2007 the government established an investigation on how the airport system in Sweden could be updated. The investigation concluded that there should be three categories of airport: national strategic airport, regional strategic airport and other airports. This study focuses on two different airports in Northern Sweden that has two different types of ownerships, Luleå airport that owned by the state and was considered to be a national strategic airport and Skellefteå airport that is owned by the municipality and was considered to be aregional strategic airport. The study aims to examine the condition of possible differences regarding regional development in the Skellefteå region and Luleå region based on the two different types of ownerships.

The scientific approach has been qualitative, 4 semi-structured interviews was performed with 2 representatives from each region. One airport representive from each region, one from the business industry in the Skellefteå region and one from the tourism industry in the Luleå region.

This study examines three different themes that were discovered from the interviews. Regional development, accessability and flight tax. Based on these themes the both airports are major keys for the accessability and the regional development in the regions. The flight tax has had an impact on the both airports, but if it is directly because of the flight tax cannot be ensured.
