The world’s largest aircraft will be able to land at Stockholm Arlanda
In 2017, Stockholm Arlanda will be able to handle larger aircraft, so-called Code F aircraft. These include the world’s largest plane, the A-380, which can carry 800 passengers.
Two gates are being prepared in the first phase. After this, the new pier will also be able to handle these aircraft. Read more about the new pier here.
So far, Runway 1 was reinforced in 2015 in order to accommodate the new, heavier planes.
Three-armed passenger bridges planned
To increase efficiency during boarding and disembarking, terminal renovations and a larger number of bridge extensions are needed. A solution with three-armed passenger bridges will result in an efficient, smooth flow inside the airport.
Baggage and check-in will also be modified – all in order to produce as efficient and smooth an experience as possible.
