Facts about Mehamn Airport (MEH):

  • Both the villages of Gamvik and Kjøllefjord were considered as alternative locations for the airport, and both received smaller airfields before Mehamn Airport opened in 1974.
  • Initially the CAA supported Gamvik as a location for a regional airport, in part because of the lower investment costs.
  • In addition to being known as "Mehamn Airport", another name for MEH is "Mehamn lufthavn".
