Arena Arctica

6500 square meters of hangar space above the Arctic Circle
Do you need a large hangar building at an airport with a high level of service close to a modern city, surrounded by wilderness country side with a winter climate most of the year? Airbus Industries, Boeing, Eurocopter and NASA are just a few examples of those that have found that the answer to this question is 'Yes'.

Arena Arctica, situated nine kilometers from Kiruna, meets most of the expectations one can demand of a hangar building. The 5,000 square meters of hangar area can accommodate an aircraft up to the size of a Boeing 747.

Even if the temperature outside is 20 degrees below zero centigrade, the inside hangar temperature is a comfortable 18 degrees above, or warmer if the client prefers.

In addition to the hangar space there are also offices, conference rooms, laboratories, a lunchroom and four basic hotel rooms, all with a combined area of 700 square meters.

Naturally you will also have access to telephones, fax, modem and broadband connections to the Internet. Moreover, there is a wide range of different types of electrical outlets, both in the office spaces and in the hangar.

All of these are factors that have contributed to that, for example, Airbus and Eurocopter have winter tested their latest models in Kiruna. Arena Arctica is, as a matter of fact, not solely a large hanger, but also in many ways a very suitable structure for testing businesses working with aviation, helicopters and component manufacturing.

The hangar is also used as a garage during winter testing of cars and trucks. And if you wish to invite clients or the general public to a larger event, neither is this any problem.

Arena Arctica can easily be transformed into a trade fair and exhibition hall and can accommodate up to 5,000 people.
