Bardufoss Airport (IATA: BDU, ICAO:
ENDU) (Norwegian: Bardufoss lufthavn) is situated in
the municipality of Malselv in Troms, North Norway. The airport is primarily
military, but also serves a few civilian flights. In 2005 the airport
had 155,038 passengers.
Norwegian Air Shuttle currently operates three daily flights with Boeing
737 aircraft to Oslo Airport, Gardermoen.
Norwegian Aviation College (NAC) is located at the airport. Other users
of the airport include a flying club (Bardufoss Flyklubb) and a parachute
jumping club (Troms Fallskjermklubb).
At Bardufoss Air Station, also located at the airport, the Royal Norwegian
Air Force operates Westland Lynx MK 86 helicopters (337 Squadron) for
the Norwegian Coast Guard as well as Bell 412SP helicopters (339 Squadron).
The Royal Norwegian Air Force Flight Training School is also located at
Bardufoss. These three units are all parts of the 139 Air Wing.
Bardufoss Air Station was founded in 1938. The airfield is the oldest
military airfield still operative in the country.
During World War II RAF Gloster Gladiators (of No. 263 Squadron RAF)
and Hawker Hurricanes (of No. 46 Squadron RAF) operating from Bardufoss
played a vital part in keeping the Luftwaffe at bay during the fighting
on the Narvik front in the 9 April-10 June 1940 Norwegian campaign. After
the allied withdrawal from Norway, the airbase was used by the Germans,
mostly as a base for the fighters and bombers attacking the convoys between
Great Britain and Murmansk in Northern Russia.
