The new Terminal 2 meets the need of today’s passengers for an efficient, attractive travel solution. The terminal has short distances from the entrance to the gate, and passengers can also enjoy an environment that is suitable for both work and relaxation. The new Terminal 2 gives a feeling of everyday luxury in a small but modern format.
“The new Terminal 2 has all the potential to be a favourite for many passengers. It takes no more than 15 minutes to get from the train, bus or car to the gate. Along with this smooth flow, passengers will get the feeling of being at a cosy little airport contained in a big one. We are pleased that Terminal 2 now helps to enhance the overall impression of the airport,” says Kjell-Åke Westin, airport director at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.
A brand-new lounge on the upper level gives a luxurious feeling of home and is suitable for passengers who want to work or relax. There is also a new brasserie, Himmel och Hav, as well as Lavazza, an Italian café and restaurant concept on two levels. There is likewise a wide range of shopping options in the new Terminal 2. Among the shops are Capi The Travellers Electronics Company, World of Toys, New Deli with Swedish specialities, and a bigger brand-new duty-free shop which also sells Swedish design.
"The Stockholm region is growing, as is the number of passengers. The airlines are expanding, and with the new Terminal 2, we are strengthening Stockholm Arlanda’s capacity. As a result, we contribute to access to Sweden and the entire region, which is crucial for the country’s competitiveness and growth. We have high ambitions when it comes to meeting our customers’ needs and aspirations, and it can be noted that Stockholm Arlanda’s new Terminal 2 is a clear demonstration of this ambition," says Torborg Chetkovich, chief executive of Swedavia.
Stockholm Arlanda’s Terminal 2 was inaugurated in 1990 and was used at that time as the domestic terminal. Since then, there have been a number of modifications, and over time the terminal has been in growing need of a total makeover. The refurbished terminal will be used by a number of airlines, including British Airways, KLM, Air France and Finnair.
In 2015, a new baggage sorting facility will also be inaugurated. Once it is placed in service, Swedavia will have invested a total of 400 million Swedish kronor in the refurbishment of Terminal 2.
