Are you flying from Stockholm Arlanda August 24-25? Please allow a little extra time!

Updated 8/23/2016 at. 6:53 PM
The Stockholm visit by the Vice President of the United States may affect other travel at the airport. There are no official times specified, but this will probably involve the late afternoon/evening of Wednesday and the afternoon of Thursday. The presence of Air Force Two is expected to have very little impact on other air traffic at Stockholm Arlanda. But there will be temporary stops in road traffic – on Route 273, at the entrance to the airport and on Highway E4 between the airport and Stockholm – in conjunction with the vice president’s arrival and departure. This means you should allow a little extra time if you are planning to travel on those days. The temporary stops in road traffic will also affect bus traffic within the airport; between longterm parkings, car rental center, hotels and the terminals.


All passengers must check in in order to receive a boarding card which gives you access to the aircraft – even if you are only taking hand baggage on board with you. Check in at the self-service check-in machines, or at the check-in desks.


Different check-in regulations depending on the airline

Different airlines have different regulations regarding latest check-in times. Check with your airline before travellling. You must be prepared to show identification so take your ID card or passport with you, depending on where you are travelling.

Self-service check-in machines

Certain airlines offer self-service check-in machines at Swedavia's airports – you check-in yourself and then take care of baggage labelling and check-in. There are also machines for electronic tickets. Tickets and boarding cards are printed when you swipe your credit/debit card. These options are especially convenient when queues are long at the traditional check-in desks.
