Incident involving a SAAB 340 at Skellefteå airport

A SAAB 340, operated by Nextjet and headed to Vilhelmina airport from Stockholm Arlanda, experienced problems with the pitch trim system which made the handling of the aircraft difficult. The crew contacted Umeå airport to get permission to land there instead of at Vilhelmina airport. Umeå could not however accept the aircraft. They then got permission to land at Skelleftea airport instead. The landing went smoothly and no injuries occurred.
