About the airport
Stockholm Skavsta Airport is located 100 km south of Stockholm – right next to the main E4-highway. The airport is the forth largest airport in Sweden and the third largest when it comes to international traffic. We offer an effective and efficient airport; the bright modern facilities are capable of dealing with large volumes of passengers.
The terminal building at Stockholm Skavsta Airport is capable of handling 3 million passengers a year, and is designed for further expansion. The terminal provides retail shops, restaurants, currency exchange, rental cars, business lounge etc to our passengers and visitors.
Both long term and short term parking and the indoor parking together with drop-off zones are located close to the main terminal. Regular airport coach services operate to and from Stockholm, Linköping and Norrköping. A new rail link (Ostlänken) is planned and will incorporate a station within the airport area.
Stockholm Skavsta Airport provides a unique opportunity for expansion whilst considering the environment. The airport already has land reserves that could accommodate all future development without reaching the environmentally approved ceiling.
More than 40 companies operate within in our business park, offering great opportunities and expansion possibilities. The airport hotel, owned and runned by Connect Hotels, is situated just 100 m from the terminal building.
