Strongly economic growth and flourishing tourism

Sweden is Scandinavia's largest country with about 10.2 million inhabitants.

Sweden is the most populous country in Scandinavia, with 10,171,524 inhabitants, and has strong economic growth. Sweden is also the main Scandinavian market for multinational companies. For instance, H&M, Ericsson, Volvo and SKF developed their operations here. Foreign companies like Bosch, Mercedes Benz and IBM also have major operations in Sweden.

The number of tourists has increased by 13,4% over the past 10 years

Sweden has many visitors. Over the past ten years, the number of tourists has increased by over 100 percent, and today the country has 16,2 million foreign overnight stays a year. Sweden attracts visitors with its centuries of history, its cities with a modern pulse and Scandinavian flair, and its unique nature, offering mountains and open landscape, sandy beaches and cliffs, and lakes and waterways for both activities and pleasure.

By starting up passenger service and air cargo routes, you have access to all of Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea region, with its more than 100 million inhabitants. 

The largest air cargo market in Scandinavia

Sweden is the largest air cargo market in Scandinavia, with some 300,000 tonnes in annual air cargo tonnage. Sweden is such a large air cargo market because of the country’s strong export industry. About 50 percent of Sweden’s GDP today is linked to exports, almost twice the global average. Three of Swedavia’s ten airports today have extensive air cargo operations and heavy cargo air service: Stockholm Arlanda Airport, Göteborg Landvetter Airport and Malmö Airport.
