History

1936 Bromma Airport is inaugurated by Gustav V.

1946 Scandinavian Airline Systems (SAS) is founded.

1957 The carrier Linjeflyg is founded.

1962 SAS's international operations move to Stockholm Arlanda.

1978 Budget air travel takes off.

1983 Linjeflyg moves from Bromma to Arlanda.

1983–92 The airport is not used for scheduled service but still used regularly for general aviation and business aviation.

1992 Swedish air traffic is deregulated. Domestic air traffic returns to Bromma, provided that it meets the airport's stringent environmental requirements.

1993 A stricter Swedish Competition Act is enacted, which means the Swedish Civil Aviation Administration (LFV) must open up Swedish air traffic to competition. Nordic Aero begins providing ground handling services for Malmö Aviation. BP begins operations, along with Nordic Aero, signing an agreement with Malmö Aviation. Malmö Aviation declares bankruptcy the same year, changes owners and continues its operations except for its London route as the result of a government policy decision to ban further scheduled international service at Bromma. The same year, Skyways moves its operations to Arlanda.

1994 The ground handling agreement between the Swedish state and the City of Stockholm is extended to 2011.

1995 LFV takes back all apron services and takes over services for BP. Division Stockholm is formed.

1996 A supplementary fixed-term land lease is negotiated. Due to the increase in business aviation, someone is given the assignment of organising general aviation operations, which leads to a permanent solution.

1999 The EU questions the validity of Bromma's restrictions on international traffic after pressure from British Airways. The issue awaits a government decision. Malmö Aviation in partnership with Posten Express works to develop airmail and contract-based cargo. Bromma invests in a consolidation centre with equipment to meet future cargo handling needs.

2002 Refurbishment of departure hall is completed.

2001 Bromma becomes a fully coordinated airport under Council Regulation (EEC) No 95/93 on common rules for the allocation of slots at Community airports. Sweden enters the Schengen area.

2002 Supplementary land lease is renegotiated.

2003 Ban on international traffic lifted. Inauguration of new air traffic control tower in November.

2004 A new terminal and hangar for business aviation open.

2005 New arrival hall inaugurated.

2006 Bromma Stockholm Airport celebrates its 70th anniversary in May.

2007 LFV and the City of Stockholm reach a new agreement on land for the airport which is in effect until 2038. The number of aircraft movements is allowed to increase somewhat while opening hours remains the same although they are shifted to two hours later on Sundays. The City of Stockholm receives payment for each departing passenger.
