You’re soon going on a trip – but you're not alone!

Did you know that we've set a passenger record six summers in a row here at Stockholm Arlanda Airport? If you look around at your fellow passengers, you can certainly sense that there are more of you than ever.

To make sure you won't need to be crowded, we're expanding. We've decided to invest more than 16.5 billion Swedish kronor in Swedavia's airports through 2020. Good, right? So in the wait for a bigger, better Stockholm Arlanda, you'll notice it's a bit crowded. We kindly ask for your patience. While the work is under way, we'd like to give you some tips and advice so your time at the airport will be as smooth as possible.

Some good tips for your journey

Before your journey

  • Have a valid passport.
  • Check which terminal you're flying from.
  • Check in at home on your computer or mobile phone. You can print your boarding card or have it sent to your mobile.
  • Find out what your airline's size and weight restrictions are for hand baggage.
  • Check with your airline what the earliest time is that you can check in via the self-automated service machines.
  • Be at the airport well in advance. Find out what your airline recommends and add a little margin.

For smoother check-in

  • Check in using the automated self-service machines.
  • You will get your boarding card and baggage tag from the automated self-service machine.
  • Fasten the baggage tag to your bag and drop it off at the bag drop counter. Don't forget to take your baggage receipt.
  • If you are flying with SAS, Norwegian, KLM or Air France, you can drop your baggage off at the self-service bag drop counter. Don't forget to take your baggage receipt.
  • Scan the baggage tag and follow the instructions on the screen.
  • Your baggage is transported by the conveyor belt when check-in is completed.

Security checkpoint

  • Empty your pockets and place the contents in a plastic tray.
  • Remove any liquids from your hand baggage and place them in a transparent one-litre plastic bag.
  • Liquid containers may hold a maximum of 100 ml each.
  • Place outer garments, computers, large electronic items, keys, coins, belts, large jewellery and mobile phone in plastic trays.
  • Show liquid medicine, special diet food and baby food at the security checkpoint.

Self-service step by step

Is there a queue at the check-in counter? Or is it closed? Then choose an automated self-service machine instead to check in. Consult your airline to see what the earliest time is you can check in. Do you have specially sized baggage such as golf equipment or a stroller? Then you need to check in at a check-in counter that is staffed.

Enter your booking reference on the touch screen and follow the instructions.

Your boarding card and baggage tag(s) are printed once you’re done.

Tips before security screening

Come well-prepared so that security screening goes
quickly and smoothly. Have your boarding card ready
so you can show it.

Remove your outer garments, suit jacket, headwear
and metal items like belts that have a large buckle
or jewellery.

Place your plastic bag with liquids in the tray so
it is can be seen. Empty your pockets of mobile
phones, keys and coins.

Place large electronic items in the tray so they
can be seen. Remove any liquid medicine, special
diet food and baby food and show them at the security
checkpoint. Sometimes you may be asked to take
off your shoes.

Finding your way at the airport

The airport has four terminals: 2, 3, 4 and 5. Domestic air traffic departs from Terminals 3 and 4, and international traffic departs from Terminals 2 and 5.

SkyCity, between Terminals 4 and 5, is not a terminal with arriving and departing aircraft but instead part of the airport that is open to both passengers and the general public.
