As Sweden’s busiest airport, Stockholm Arlanda Airport serves as the headquarters for Scandinavian Airlines. What’s interesting about this airline is that it is based in Stockholm and carriers the flag of Sweden but also acts as a national airline for Denmark and Norway. Scandinavian Airlines connects Sweden’s capital city with other European capitals such as Berlin, Brussels, Amsterdam, Dublin, Istanbul, London, and Paris. Additionally, the Swedish flag carrier is also an excellent option for getting to other large metropolitan areas such as Frankfurt, Birmingham, Manchester, Milan, and Zurich.
Having the busiest status in the Scandinavian region, it’s quite natural for Scandinavian Airlines to connect Stockholm Arlanda Airport to the company’s other major hubs. Sweden’s national airline takes passengers to Copenhagen and Oslo on a daily basis. Bergen, Trondheim and Stavanger are other major Scandinavian destinations (all in Norway) that are listed on the year round schedule operated by Scandinavian Airlines. The Terminal 5 building hosts the busiest airline at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.
As Scandinavia’s second biggest airline company, Norwegian Air Shuttle takes the second spot when it comes to the busiest schedule at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. This Norwegian company offers daily flights to European cities like Barcelona, Belgrade, Budapest, Helsinki, Krakow, Munich, Prague, and Paris. Of course, Norwegian Air Shuttle also invites Stockholm’s passengers to the carrier’s home base at the Gardermoen Airport in Oslo. Bangkok in Thailand, New York City in the United States and Tel-Aviv in Israel make up the list of long haul operations provided by Norwegian Air Shuttle. The seasonal lineup by this major Norwegian airline includes trips to Mediterranean islands and southern European resorts. Norwegian Air Shuttle welcomes its customers at the gates in Terminal 5 at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. From Terminal 4, this company connects Stockholm with other cities in Sweden such as Malmo and Visby.
Sweden’s busiest airport is also served by over a dozen European airline companies. Flag carriers such as Air France, Belavia, British Airways, Estonian Airlines, Finnair, Icelandair, KLM, LOT Polish Airlines, and Turkish Airlines connect Stockholm with other major European capital cities.
Being an important city in the Scandinavian region, Stockholm also attracts the presence of other airlines from outside of Europe. Aeroflot offers trips to Moscow and Rossiya takes customers to St. Petersburg. Arkia Israel Airlines offers flights to Tel Aviv and Iran Air is the only option for getting to Tehran. Delta Air Lines and United Airlines both connect Stockholm Arlanda Airport with New York City.
