Narvik Airport, Framnes (IATA: NVK, ICAO: ENNK) (Norwegian: Narvik lufthavn, Framnes is a regional airport serving the city of Narvik in Nordland, Norway. The airport is a secondary airport with only short regional flights, while the primary Harstad/Narvik Airport, Evenes has long-distance jet services. Framnes is significantly closer to Narvik than Evenes, being located at the tip of the Framnes peninsula, immediately west of the city. In 2005 the airport had 13,772 passengers. The airport has a single 800 m long runway numbered 01/19.
Framnes Airport is served by Wideroe with daily flights to Bodo, Andenes and Tromso. From Bodo there is connecting flights with Scandinavian Airlines and Wideroe to destinations like Oslo, Trondheim, Bergen and Mo i Rana.
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.
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.
