Örebro cargo accelerates

ÖREBRO Airport in central Sweden, which handled 25,411 tons of freight during 2007, has already surpassed that amount by the end of October 2008.

“Despite the fact that we lost scheduled freight routes during both 2007 and 2008, our freight operation has actually increased during that time in terms of both road and air. This shows that Örebro Airport is an important part of the overall transport solution for the region’s industry,” said Kjell-Ake Westin, managing director of the airport.

“Local industry knows about our freight capacity. We can deal with the very largest freight planes here and we have all the skills and resources needed for the loading and handling of cargo,” he said.
