The VuoggatjÃ¥lme based family company Arctic Air has acquired Lapplandsflyg‘s operations in Kvikkjokk, including the hangar at the base. Starting this summer, Arctic Air will inherit the shuttle route between Kvikkjokk-Staloluokta-Ritsem and the local ad-hoc operations. The company, which employs a Jet Ranger and a recently acquired Long Ranger, is expected to grow significantly through the deal.

Arctic Air has its roots in the company HB Fjällfrakt, which was established back in 1977. It has maintained its profile as a local company over the years, with its heart and soul in Vuoggatjålme – an idyllic tourism station in the deep mountain world west of Arjeplog, right on the arctic circle. The company partnered up with Norrhelikopter last year, which expanded the (separated) fleet by several helicopters, including two MD500s, a Long Ranger and two Schweizer 300s.

Lapplandsflyg, Sweden’s oldest active helicopter company, announced its retirement in April this year. The flight operations is being terminated this summer, and its business will be permanently closed.
