Sälen Trysil Airport, a facility that is under construction along the border between Sweden's largest alpine ski area Sälen and Norway's largest ski resort Trysil, is set to open to commercial traffic during the final quarter of the year.

The airport's operator, Scandinavian Mountains AB, said in a statement BRA - Braathens Regional Airlines (TF, Stockholm Bromma) will be the first commercial carrier to serve the airfield with flights to Malmö set to commence on December 22, 2019.

Besides Malmö, the Swedish regional carrier will also connect Sälen Trysil with Stockholm Bromma, Gothenburg Landvetter, Angelholm/Helsingborg, and Växjö at least until the end of March, depending on demand. Operations are onboard ATR72 equipment.

The airport, which is also known as the Scandinavian Mountains Airport, is located in Dalarna County, Sweden, close to the Norwegian border. Once completed, it will feature a 2,500 metre-long, ILS CAT III runway.

The Sälen Trysil region is described as "Scandinavia's largest ski area" with four major resorts and over 250 slopes reachable within 45 minutes by bus or rental car.
