Earlier in 2017 the EU announced that they would help fund a new airport at the heart of Sweden's and Norway's biggest ski resorts.
Serving the already popular resorts of Sälenfjällen and Trysil, as well as Idre and Engerdal, the new airport will further boost inward investment and development in the region.
Even without the airport, the region already boasts 6,400,000 guest nights, 100,000 beds and 3,300,000 ski days, with Scandinavia's biggest ski resort operator, SkiStar, announcing year-on-year bookings growth of 14 percent.
The new airport will be built as an expansion to the existing airfield at Mobergskölen, close to Rörbäcksnäs, 9 km from Hundfjället in Dalarna, close to the Norwegian border.
Naturally the development will include a shopping centre next door, with other entertainment and sports facilities.
The region's ski resorts will continue to particularly target UK families with young children who are increasingly appreciating the Scandinavian mix of inclusive ski areas, English-speaking ski schools and children/beginner ski areas on unintimidating mountains.
Scandinavian Mountains Airport is also hoping to be the first airport in the world with no control tower, employing a 'virtual tower' to safely direct incoming and outgoing aircraft.
Flights are expected to start in time for the 2018-2019 ski season.
