The airport is a secondary airport with only short regional flights, while the primary Harstad/Narvik Airport, Evenes has long-distance jet services.

The flights from Framnes are supported by the government of Norway (Public Service Obligation), mainly for the reason to connect the cities of northern Norway to each other for the benefit of business people. The driving time by car is relatively long, about 5 hours to Bodo, 3? hours to Tromso and 4? hours to Andenes. Travel to Oslo is usually done via the Evenes Airport.

History

Narvik Airport was built as part of the regional airport network in Northern Norway in the 1970, being originally served by Wideroe. In 2003 Kato Air won the contract on the Bodo - Narvik - Tromso route. The small size of the airport, combined with the proximity to Evenes (79 km road), made NVK a candidate for closure from March 31, 2006. However, the airport remained open and Wideroe acquired over the Narvik routes from Kato Air. When Wideroe took over the route with slightly larger aircraft (Dash 8 rather than Dornier 228), the traffic almost doubled to 2,000 passengers per month.
