The Bern-Belp regional airfield is the airfield of the Swiss federal city of Bern. It is operated by the private-sector “Flughafen Bern AG”. The regional airfield was the basis of the former SkyWork Airlines, which was grounded at Airfield led to a loss of sales of more than a third. Currently the Charter company Helvetic Airways offers some flights during the holiday season.
The Federal Air Transport Service has two business planes, the Swiss one.mAir rescue service operates a base and two helicopter companies and two Flight schools (one for powered flight, one for gliding) operate on the airfield.
