Service

The airport is served by Widerøe with Dash 8 aircraft connecting the community to Bodø, Trondheim, and other communities in Nordland and Nord-Trøndelag counties. The routes are operated on public service obligation with the Norwegian Ministry of Transport and Communications. The runway is too short for flights with enough fuel to reach Oslo.
