In addition, a large number of figures took part in acting as crew and passengers on board the aircraft that "crashed".

"The crisis exercise that took place today is extensive, across borders. Where we also collaborate with authorities, SOS Alarm and so on, says Jesper Fredmark, CEO of Skavsta Airport.

During the implementation, which lasted just over an hour, all traffic to and from the airport was closed.
