Air Sweden ‐ fly the Scandinavian way

2001
Air Sweden's history begins in 2001 when Gunnar Olsson launches his airline Nordic Airlink to operate scheduled services. The airline's launch route was Lulea to Stockholm.
2003
The scheduled services operation is sold to Finnair, leaving the company to continue charter and leasing activities under the Nordic Leisure brand.
2006
The airline is rebranded Nordic Airways and now operates a mixed fleet of McDonnell Douglas MD-83 aircraft and Saab 340.
2009
Nordic Airways is acquired by our current management team and gets a new name and livery, Air Sweden.
2010
Major funding from Middle East based investors allows the company to modernise its fleet with the addition of two Airbus A320-200 aircraft. Both aircraft are immediately placed into service on wetlease and charter contracts.
2012
Air Sweden is re-launched as a “Swedish” Scheduled and Charter airline by its new owner and the headquarters are moved back to the North of Sweden. The company is now named Nordic Air Sweden AB to reflect its geographical roots and the operational base is once again in Umeå, as it was in 2001 when it all started.
