To strengthen Sweden's socially important air transport, the Swedish Transport Administration proposes that Örebro Airport should become an emergency airport. Due to this, Örebro Airport invited to a press conference on Tuesday, attended by Governor Maria Larsson, Regional Councilor Irén Lejegren and Airport CEO, Mikael Smedberg.
- Getting the legitimacy and designation as an emergency airport would be very good for the county, it would serve crisis preparedness in a positive way. We think it is a matter of course that Örebro Airport should be a contingency airport because we can, among other things, receive all kinds of planes, we are a logistics and a demographic center in Sweden. So we hope that this proposal will be received positively, says Maria Larsson.
