Mosjoen Airport, Kjaerstad (IATA: MJF, ICAO: ENMS) (Norwegian: Mosjoen lufthavn, Kjaerstad) is a regional airport serving Mosjoen in Nordland, Norway. In 2007 Mosjoen Airport had 76,294 passengers. It is owned and operated by the state owned Avinor.

Service

The airport is served by Wideroe with Dash 8 aircraft connecting the community to Bodo and Trondheim. The routes are operated on public service obligation with the Norwegian Ministry of Transport and Communications.

History

The airport was opened in 1987 as part of the last group of regional airports to be built in Norway.

In 2002 the Ministry of Transport launched an idea of merging the three airports serving Northern Helgeland, Mosjoen Airport, Sandnessjoen Airport and Mo i Rana Airport into a new airport at Drevjadalen in Vefsn, 15 km north of Mosjoen city (55 km from Sandnessjoen, 70 from Mo i Rana). But meteorological tests performed by Avinor showed that the area had too much fog to serve as an airport. The idea was to build one new airport with a large enough runway to take down Airbus A320/Boeing 737 aircraft directly from Oslo, and make it unnecessary to operate subsidied regional aircraft to Helgeland. The road tunnel Korgfjelltunnelen opened in 2005 created a reliable and fast road between Mosjoen and Mo i Rana (it's not nice to have an often blocked road between an airport and the largest city it serves). A better road to Sandnessjoen is planned and is needed. As of 2007 the idea of a new airport is abandoned by both Avinor and the Ministry of Transport.
