Flying Tips (38)


Stockholm is one of the Ryanair destinations where they use a smaller airport rather far from the city centre (roughly 1 1/2 hours). Nevertheless there is a quick and cheap shuttle bus service connecting the airport to Stockholm.

Skavsta Airport

By far the most airplanes towards Stockholm arrive at Arlanda Airport, just a bit the north of the city. But in the modern low-budget-airline era, the airlines are searching for cheaper airports to land. Stavsta Airport, near Nykoping, is an airport like that. The arrival hall is very simple, don't expect high class tax-free shopping malls, you have to walk to the planes and climb stairs to get in and the most important: the trip towards Stockholm still takes about one and a half hours.

If you don't mind less luxury and a bustrip of 90 minutes and you want to safe some money to spend in Stockholm, you should search for this airport. Airlines that fly to here are Ryan Air, Wizz Air and Fritidsresor.

The busservice that goes to the city is provided by Flygbus Sarna:

To Stockholm with Ryanair

We booked our trip with Ryanair from Brussels-Charleroi.

You will not exactly land in Stockholm but in Skvasta which is 100 km from Stockholm. I suggest that you bay tickets for the coach from the automat inside the arrival hall WHILE waiting for your luggage because you will end up in an interminable queue and miss the first buses. The next ones will be 1 hour later only.

Bus shuttle from Skvasta

When flying to Stockholm with a budget airline like Ryanair, you won't land at the actual Stockholm airport, but at Skvasta airport.

Don't let this deter you from taking a cheap flight, as the connection to central Stockholm is fine. It'll cost you about 220KR for a round trip, and it takes about 75 minutes each way. The bus drops you off at the central station, so you're right in the middle of town.

We flew to Arlanda, Stockhlolm from Heathrow with SAS (Scandinavian Airlines). The flight was on time and they served standard airline food - what more can you ask really?
Oh there was a really cute baby in front of us who amused us for a while - like babies do. He was sweet and happy and didn't whinge and whine the whole way there - and he was being looked after soley by his dad who made a fantastic job of amusing him! This sort of service probably isn't available on every flight though :)

SAS provided the best fare when it came to choosing which airline to fly with - I think they had an offer on at the time.

Vasteras Airport

I flew to Vasteras on Ryanair from Stansted and overall I'd have to recommend it within reason.

I've heard it getting bad press for the distance and cost of the airport transfer. And yes, it's not great that you land an hour and a half away from the city and have to hand over a pile of money to get from the airport into Stockholm. BUT

I got a very cheap flight (ý35.22 return including taxes) so even once I add on the SEK199 for the airport transfer coach, I'm nowhere near the cost of a direct flight from the UK to Arlanda.. My time is precious (I only had a weekend) and the transfer did eat into it a little, but for me it was a price worth paying for a dirt cheap flight, and I'd do it again next weekend if I could.

One thing I'm not sure about though. When the flight landed two coaches took us into Stockholm. For the transfer back I got onto the first coach as I'd been at Cityterminalen for ages. But the coach was full and there were people left at the bus station. I don't know whether a second coach came or whether they had to get an expensive taxi, and I'd rather never be in the position to find out!

And the price of my flight went up considerably after I booked it. If I'd had to pay ý150 for the flight then put up with the transfer I probably wouldn't be so complimentary.

From the UK Stockholm is served by the budget airline RyanAir flying from "London" Stansted. The flights can be excellent value for money but note that this carrier flies into 2 airports (Skavsta and Vasteras) that are over an hour outside of Stockholm. The cost of a return ticket via the airport bus to the central station in Stockholm is around £15.

Be warned, Ryanair fly into 2 different airports advertised as Stockholm, neither is anywhere near the city. Both are about an hour and a half by bus. One way tickets are around 130KR!

From Malmo to Stockholm, its just over 4 hours by train and costs a staggering 600KR!

There are two main airports in Stockholm. The biggest and the main international airport is called Arlanda by the small town it where it actually resides. Most major airlines have Arlanda as their destinations. There 5 terminals in Arlanda, as well as SkyCity - shopping paradise with restaurants and even a Systembolaget (state-run alcohol store).

Bromma, which is just in outskirts of the Stockholm, and not even in the last zone of local traffic, is mainly the domestic airport (though there are rumours that it will soon become international again)

Skavsta is situated about 100 km to the south of Stockholm, and you will find yourself there if you fly with RyanAir. Cheapness of flight tickets has its drawbacks. You will get to central station with almost two hours on bus from Skavsta.

There are shuttle busses between all three airports and central station in Stockholm. You can recognize those buses by big caption saying "Flygbussarna".
