There are two international airports in Stockholm – Arlanda (ARN) and Bromma (BMA). Arlanda is the most likely airport that you will fly into, Bromma being mainly domestic plus a few European/Scandinavian flights. Arlanda is situated 37 kilometres (23 mi) north of Stockholm, but has good connections to the city. Bromma is 7.4km west-northwest of downtown Stockholm and is the closest airport to the city.

Travel to/from Airports

Arlanda Express train runs every 10 minutes during peak times and every 15 minutes at other times. It takes 20 minutes to get to the Stockholm Central Station and costs around 300 SEK for a single ticket.

Flygbussarna the cheapest option for travel to Stockholm, there are two routes and many stops within the city, costs are 99 SEK online and 119 SEK at the ticket desk for a single ticket.

SL Stockholms local public transport service has a local train from Sky City in Arlanda, cheaper than the Arlanda Express but not as fast, although it is connected to the local train service (pendeltåg) if you wish to travel to the outskirts of Stockholm. SL also has busses, trams and subway trains which cover the whole of Stockholm and the suburbs, which can all be accessed through a prepaid ticket loaded onto the SL card. You need an extra ticket to travel to or from Arlanda on top of your regular ticket for Stockholm. SL is completely cash free and all fares must be paid for prior to boarding.


Stockholm has a number of reliable taxi companies and some that are not so reliable. There have been many cases of taxis at Arlanda over-charging for trips into the city. If you already use Uber, it works quite well in Stockholm. Otherwise if you intend to take a taxi, book it beforehand with Taxi Stockholm and they will meet you in arrivals. If you don’t do either of the above, all the reputable taxi companies will give you a ‘fixed rate’ for your trip. Ask for a fixed rate to your destination before you get in the taxi, then check how much it will be and refuse to pay more than that. You can tip taxi drivers if you want to or you feel they have given good service, although fares in Stockholm are generally expensive, so it is not necessary.
