Stokmarknes Skagen Airport

Stokmarknes Airport, Skagen (IATA: SKN, ICAO: ENSK) (Norwegian: Stokmarknes lufthavn, Skagen) is an airport in Hadsel municipality in Norway, 3 nautical miles (5.6 km) east northeast of Stokmarknes. The airport opened 1. july 1972 as part of a government program of building a series of small airports along the coast. This was a major success and an important step for the population in the area (Vesterålen archipelago), who now could travel to the bigger cities of Norway and the rest of the world in one day, not weeks.

There is work in progress for extending RESA and improving the strip around the runway, for completion in the fall of 2006. At the moment Widerøe is the only approved scheduled air carrier to operate from the airport, using Canadian built De Havilland Canada Dash 8 STOL (short take-off and landing) aircraft. Other traffic include the Norwegian Coast Guards Dornier Do 228 and ambulance flights (MEDEVAC) using Beechcraft Super King Airs. Currently owned and operated by Avinor, the airport was managed by the Hadsel municipality for the first 20 years.
