The Swedish Transport Agency may decide on restrictions or bans on aviation, by establishing restricted areas (R areas). This may be done for military or safety reasons, in view of law and order, or for reasons to do with nature conservation and environmental protection. The Swedish Transport Agency may also draw up regulations applying to these areas.
If aviation safety is at hazard, but the hazard is not serious enough to give cause for the establishment of a restricted area, the Swedish Transport Agency may decide that an area should be established as a danger area (D-area) instead.
You can read more about restricted and danger areas and how to aplly for them at the following two links.
The complete application must be submitted to the Swedish Transport Agency at least seven weeks before the R- or D-area is intended to be established.
Applications from the Swedish Armed Forces
Applications from the Swedish Armed Forces must always be submitted via their flight tactical staff’s aviation section, where their requirements are put together before the application is submitted to the Swedish Transport Agency.
Applications for airspace restrictions or danger areas to:
Swedish Transport Agency

or preferably by email to email@example.com.
When there is a need for a swift establishment of a restricted area during regular working hours (MON trough FRI 08:00-16:30), for example following a major accident, the matter will be dealt with at the Section for Airspace and Aerodromes in Norrköping.
At all other times, urgent matters will be handled by LFV’s (the Swedish Civil Aviation Administration) airspace management cell (AMC), and decided by the Section for Airspace and Aerodromes in Norrköping, which is manned 24/7. Contact AMC by telephone on +46 (0)40 613 2701, by fax on +46 (0)40 50 02 54 or by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org.
A decision on the establishment of an R- or D-area also involves MIL NOTAM, NOTAM or AIP SUP being issued to inform air traffic services and pilots about bans or restrictions of the right to fly through the area.
If you have any questions about airspace restrictions, please contact email@example.com.
