History of this Location

Bardufoss Lufthavn is a largely civilian airport in the north of Norway, within the Arctic Circle just southwest of Tromso. It is owned by Avinor (the Norwegian Airports Authority). It is also shared by the air squadron of the Kystvakt (Norwegian Coastguard).

On 15 Feb 2019, the UK MoD presented the Norwegian Government with Sea King HC.4 ZE427/K as a Gate Guardian, to mark 50 years since the commencement of the annual UK Exercise Clockwork, where British Forces deploy to Norway, as part of its commitment to the NATO Northern Flank.
