Stockholm Arlanda

Stockholm, Sweden

About The Airport

Sweden's largest airport has 4 terminals - Terminals 2 and 5 are used for international flights, while 3 and 4 are for domestic services. Commonly referred to as simply Arlanda, for many in the country this airport has become their main gateway for international travel. In the pre-Security section of the airport between Terminals 4 and 5, you'll find SkyCity, a shopping and dining area open to both passengers and members of the public.


Free Wi-Fi is available for up to 3 hours or 100 MB.
