Infrastructure and transport modes
Swedavia’s task from the Swedish State includes running the company based on solid business principles and helping to meet the Parliament’s transport policy objectives. Air travel is part of mass transit and plays a critical role in longer trips.
Swedavia works to link together transport modes in Sweden and thus enable passengers to choose the mix of transport modes that is most efficient for each trip.
Mass transit to and from Stockholm Arlanda Airport has been enhanced. Today over fifty per cent of passengers take mass transit to and from the airport. However, as passenger volume rises, rail-bound traffic capacity must be ensured and Stockholm Arlanda Airport must be included in any investment in high-speed rail in order to create effective transfers between transport modes.
Swedavia welcomes the investment being made in rail-bound mass transit between Gothenburg, via Göteborg Landvetter Airport, and Borås. Similarly, it is very important that rail service in the southern province of Scania be enhanced by linking Malmö Airport, with more than two million passengers, with Ystad and Malmö. The Tvärbanan Stockholm region rail service to Bromma Stockholm Airport will lead to significant improvement in access to and from the Swedish capital.
