New Marketplace with food and shopping opens at Arlanda
Swedavia is making a major investment in developing the commercial offering at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. This will now be especially clear when the first part of the brand-new Marketplace in Terminal 5 opens its doors. The long-term strategy behind this venture has a focus on variation, renewal and value for money.
The Marketplace now opening in Terminal 5 will be the heart of Arlanda’s commercial offering. It provides a variety of food, beverages, shopping and services concentrated in an area with 11,000 square metres of floorspace right next to the new state-of-the-art security checkpoint. The space has been carefully planned to make things easy for passengers and help create an inspiring and pleasant environment. Many of the food and beverage concepts are completely new to the airport.
There has been and continues to be great interest among businesses in setting up operations in the new Marketplace. Swedavia’s new commercial strategy gives priority to getting the right mix, with variation in the product assortment, price categories and brands. The location at Arlanda, which has about 22 million passengers a year, is very attractive for commercial operators, who are involved in creating food, beverage and shopping experiences that are out of the ordinary.
After the first part of the Marketplace opens, the commercial offering at Arlanda will gradually be developed with the addition of even more operators, and the aim is to be completely finished by late 2024–early 2025. In late 2023–early 2024, the next big phase of the project awaits, when the major investment in food and beverages – The Veranda, with its 4,000 square metres of floorspace – will open. The area will house a brand-new fine dining concept and a new Food Hall, among other things.
