The new Stockholm Arlanda Airport continues to take shape, and when the new security checkpoint and the Marketplace are completed, many new restaurants and bars will open. Among other changes, Stockholm Arlanda Airport’s first food hall will open its doors. Passengers will be able to enjoy food from a number of different restaurants here – including everything from hamburgers to dishes with flavours from the Middle East.

A large security checkpoint with state-of-the-art technology is being built in Terminal 5, which will make screening easier for passengers. Right next door, the new Marketplace – the biggest investment ever in commercial operations at Arlanda – is being built. The Marketplace will feature Nordic design and have a total of 11,000 square metres of commercial space. The first of three phases will open in the summer of 2023, and the entire Marketplace will be completed in late 2024/early 2025.

Since “eating is the new shopping,” more premises for restaurants and bars will be available in the Marketplace and be adapted to the passengers of the future. The focus will be on a wide range of options and healthier food. A price cap will also be in place, which means prices cannot be more than 10% higher compared to similar offerings “in town”.

“It will be easy for passengers to choose from a varied range of options, with flavours from different parts of the world, and the offering will meet all the different kinds of needs that passengers can conceivably have no matter the time of day. All in all, the offering and experience should contribute to a memorable experience that people will want to share with others and experience again soon,” says Charlotte Ljunggren, Chief Marketing Officer, at Swedavia.

HMSHost is a leading provider in food and beverage services for travellers. They already run numerous restaurants and bars at Arlanda today, and in the summer of 2024 HMSHost will open Arlanda’s first food hall in the Marketplace, a venue that brings together a variety of different restaurants. The restaurants La Neta, Bun Meat Bun and Baba Grill will be located here along with two smaller pop-up restaurants that will change on a regular basis to make way for new exciting food concepts. In addition to the restaurants, the food hall will also include a new bar with a wonderful view of the runway for take-offs and landings. HMSHost will also open other outlets in the Marketplace, including 60 Degrees – Bar and Brewery, a pub with local beers and classic pub food, and Fresh Forward, a grab´n go concept where passengers on the move can easily get their food.

“The development of Stockholm Arlanda Airport’s food and beverage offering gave us an opportunity to expand our concepts. Our extensive brand portfolio and strong local relationships created the perfect platform from which we could create a beautiful, genuine Swedish experience for guests. We are so pleased to work together with Swedavia as a long-term business partner and continue to create places where people want to be, and we look forward to opening our new restaurants next year,” says Sytze van der Aa, HMSHost International’s Regional Managing Director for Europe.
