Travel information related to the coronavirus

The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs advises against all non-essential travel outside Sweden. As a result, a number of airlines have temporarily suspended or reduced the number of flights to a large number of destinations and countries.

Information about which departing flights are affected is updated on a continuous basis and can be seen on Swedavia’s website under Arrivals and Departures. Before the airlines themselves have updated their information, Swedavia’s customer service is unable to provide any information and we regret any inconvenience this may involve.

For information about your flight, contact your airline

Travel information

A number of countries have introduced entry restrictions and stopped air traffic with very short notice. The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs advises against all non-essential travel outside Sweden until April 14, 2020, at which time a new assessment will be made.

Handling Covid-19 at the airport

Swedavia is monitoring developments regarding the new coronavirus and is working in close collaboration with the authorities in charge.

The safety and security of passengers, employees and partners always have top priority at Swedavia’s airports. 
In consultation with the authorities in charge of infectious disease control, Swedavia has ensured that the procedures being carried out at the security control are done so in a safe manner. In addition, other measures being taken include more intensive cleaning of trays and surfaces. Swedavia is monitoring developments and is in continuous contact with infectious disease physicians and the Public Health Agency of Sweden

The Public Health Agency of Sweden has overall national responsibility for protecting the population against infectious diseases. The regions, formerly the county councils, have regional responsibility for infectious disease control.

Swedavia is in continuous contact with the authorities in charge and is taking the measures that are considered necessary. We are following developments day by day at our airports and have established procedures for working together and managing cases of illness.
