When the decision was made to form Swedavia, there were 16 nationally owned airports, but it was a part of the decision to transfer six of them to local owners and keep ten large airports. Region Värmland took over the operations of Karlstad Airport in 2010.[6] In 2011, the operations for Ängelholm-Helsingborg Airport was transferred to Region Skåne Nordväst[7] and Örnsköldsvik Airport was transferred to Örnsköldsvik Municipality.[8] In 2013 Sundsvall Airport was transferred to local owners.
