After a regional airline went bust this week, the Swedish state is going to make sure there will be ways to travel between Stockholm and the small towns of the far north once serviced by Nextjet.
But only three of those cities will be seeing actual emergency replacement flights. Two other towns will have to make do with extra trains, busses and even taxis.
Regional airline Nextjet filed for bankruptcy on Wednesday and canceled all scheduled flights from May 16 onward. The company said customers who booked tickets should contact their travel agency who issued the tickets or bank.
