About

Barents AirLink was a Swedish airline that flew between 1974–2016. The airline was based at Luleá Airport and — at the time that it stopped flying — offered flights to destinations within Scandinavia and to Russia.

Barents Airlink launched as Norkalottflyg in 1974. The airline flew a small number of scheduled flights for more than 40 years. However, in 2012, the airline was forced to suspend all operations due to financial difficulty. In 2016, the airline merged into Babock Scandinavian AirAmbulance, which is a helicopter airline that offers air ambulance flights for the Swedish, Finnish and Norwegian governments.
