About Air Sweden

Air Sweden was a Swedish airline that offered scheduled and charter passenger flights. The airline was based at several airports within Sweden but used Stockholm-Arlanda Airport (ARN) as its main hub. Air Sweden launched in 2009, stopped flying in 2012 and re-launched in 2021. With the re-launch, the airline flew to several destinations across Europe, as well as to destinations in the Middle East and Africa. The airline offered flights on its own schedule but also flies on behalf of tour operators and other airlines.

Air Sweden was a rebrand from an old Swedish airline, Nordic Airlink/Nordic Airways. Nordic Airlink/Nordic Airways was a charter airline that flew from 2001–2009 under the 'Nordic Leisure' brand and flew for various tour operators and airlines, including SASGermanwings and others. In 2009, the airline rebranded as Air Sweden and upgraded its fleet to offer charter flights both long-haul and short-haul. The airline stopped flying in 2012 due to lack of demand.

The airline was a full-service carrier, which meant extras such as in-flight entertainment and complimentary food and drink were included in its service.
