Stockholm-Arlanda Airport Airport codes|ARN|ESSA, is an international airport located in the Sigtuna Municipality of Sweden, near the town of Märsta, about 42km north of Stockholm and nearly 40km, by road, south-east of Uppsala. By rail the distance from Uppsala is considerably shorter, while the rail distance to and from Stockholm's centre is comparable to that of the road.

The airport is located within Stockholm County and the province of Uppland. It is the largest airport in Sweden – in 2006 the third largest airport in the Nordic countries – and had 17.91 million passengers in 2007. [ [http://www.lfv.se/templates/LFV_MillerStatistik.aspx?id=48287 Trafik och statistik - LFV ] ] It is also one of three major hubs of Scandinavian Airlines System.

History

The airport was first used in 1959, but only for practice flights. In 1960, it opened for general traffic, and in 1962 the official opening ceremony took place. It was used for intercontinental traffic already in 1960 since the runway of Bromma was too short. The name "Arlanda" was decided after a competition prior to the airport opening. It is derived from Arland, an old name for the parish Ärlinghundra (now Husby-Ärlinghundra in Märsta) where the airport is situated. The '-a' was added in analogy with other Swedish place names ending with -landa, and also makes the name a pun on the Swedish verb "landa", which means "to land". Terminal 5 is the original terminal.

In 1983 the domestic traffic moved from Bromma to Arlanda, using the newly built terminal now known as Terminal 4. In 1990 two new domestic terminals called "Domestic 2 and 3" were built south of the first domestic terminal. In 1992 the terminal 2 was partly abandoned because of traffic decrease. It started to be used for international traffic the year after, and the main domestic and international terminals are renumbered into 4 and 5. The third runway was built 1998-2002. Due to low passenger figures in 2002 it wasn't used until 2003, at which time protests were raised by people living under its flight path.

Airport layout

The airport has four terminals with a total of 64 gates. Terminals 2 and 5 are used for international flights. Domestic flights are in terminal 3 and Terminal 4. The new central building, Arlanda North, opened late 2003, connecting terminal 5 with the newly built Pier F. All international flights handled by SAS and its Star Alliance partners use the new central building. An Arlanda South building, connecting terminals 2, 3 and 4, was also planned, but construction is currently suspended due to lack of funds. Between terminals 4 and 5 is the shopping centre "Sky City", which also has a main line railway station. Furthermore, the Arlanda Express trains connect two stations at the airport with Stockholm. The airport has a capacity of about 25 million passengers per year.

Arlanda has three runways: Runway 1 (01L-19R), Runway 2 (08-26), Runway 3 (01R-19L). Runway 1 is 3300 m long and can handle take-offs and landings of the heaviest aircraft in use today. Runways 2 and 3 are 2500 m long. As indicated, runways 1 and 3 are parallel runways that can be operated independently of one another. Runway 3 is equipped with CAT III for instrument landings. The airport administration claims to be world-leading at clearing snow from the runways. Arlanda has a policy to never close due to snowfall. [ [http://www.lfv.se/templates/LFV_InfoSida_70_30____41880.aspx Snow removal - LFV ] ] Heavy snowfall can however cause long delays.

Arlanda has 5 terminals for air cargo and 5 aircraft hangars. The number of aircraft parking places is approximately 100. Arlanda has been listed as one of the many emergency landing sites for NASA's Space Shuttle [ [http://www.globalsecurity.org/space/facility/sts-els.htm List of Space Shuttle emergency landing sites at GlobalSecurity.org] ] (most likely on account of its relatively long main runway).

Ground transportation

Rail

The fastest way to the airport from Stockholm Central Station is the Arlanda Express high-speed train service. The 20-minute train ride costs 220 SEK [cite web|title=Prices|publisher=Arlanda Express|url=http://www.arlandaexpress.com/|accessdate=2007-09-23] for an adult and 110 SEK for under 25 year olds (make sure you ask for this as it won't necessarily be volunteered by staff) and can be combined with a taxi or use of the SL public transport system as a time efficient method of travel to the airport.

Upptåget, operated by UL, is a commuter train service covering Upplands Väsby – Stockholm-Arlanda Airport – UppsalaGävle. The train takes about 19 minutes to Uppsala and 90 minutes to Gävle. The train departs every 30 minutes. The train costs 105 SEK to Uppsala and 180 SEK to Gävle. One can change in Upplands Väsby to commuter train to Stockholm, for a total price to Stockholm of 115 SEK, taking 35 min.

Long-distance trains called Intercity or X2000 operated by SJ go to locations north of Stockholm-Arlanda Airport. A fee (75 SEK, normally included in the ticket price) is levied on arriving or departing passengers which use the underground railroad station. It is not allowed to use long-distance trains to go to the Stockholm Central Station.

Hotel transfer

Airport Shuttle

Airport shuttle provides transportation from Arlanda airport to hotels in Stockholm city. Airport Shuttle is a cheaper alternative compared to train and taxi since you share the shuttle with other travellers.

The journey with AirportShuttle.se between Arlanda airport and Stockholm city costs 150 SEK and takes between 30-70 minutes depending on traffic. They guarantee it will not take more than 70 minutes.

Bus

Flygbussarna

Flygbussarna offer airport coaches to and from the airport which stop at several locations in northern Stockholm County as well as Stockholm City Centre. From the downtown city terminal "Flygbussarna" offers a connecting coach to Stockholm-Bromma Airport which in addition to Stockholm-Arlanda Airport caters to domestic and international travel. "Flygbussarna" also has coaches which connect to Stockholm-Skavsta Airport which caters to low-cost airlines like Ryanair.

The journey with "Flygbussarna" between Stockholm central bus terminal and Stockholm-Arlanda Airport costs 110 SEK [cite web|title=Fares|publisher=Flygbussarna Airport Coaches|url=http://www.flygbussarna.se/Priser/Arlanda.aspx|accessdate=2008-09-09] and takes about 40 minutes, longer in rush hour.

L bus and commuter rail

The cheapest way to travel to and from Stockholm-Arlanda Airport is by using SL bus lines 583 or 583X which travel between the airport and Märsta station where a commuter train connects with Stockholm Central Station. The travelling time from the airport to the Stockholm Central Station is about 60 minutes (of which about 18 minutes by bus, 6 minutes transit at Märsta station, 36 minutes by train).

Note that when travelling by SL buses the tickets must be purchased beforehand as it is not possible to purchase them on the bus. Pre-paid tickets are sold at the convenience stores operated by Pressbyrån and 7-Eleven inside the terminals and Sky City. The trip to central Stockholm requires four zone tickets, which costs 52 SEK [cite web|title=Tickets and prices|publisher=AB Storstockholms Lokaltrafik|url=http://www.sl.se/templates/Page.aspx?id=2375|accessdate=2007-05-07] with pre-paid tickets. Just the bus trip to Märsta station requires two tickets, which costs 26 SEK with pre-paid tickets. See "Public transport in Stockholm" for a description of other ticket alternatives which may be a better option if one intends to utilise the public transport more than just for this single trip.

Commuter trains operated by SJ to Stockholm Central Station and Uppsala also stop at Märsta station (Stockholm: 21 min, costs 50 SEK; Uppsala: 19 minutes, costs 50 SEK).

Uppsala

Buses operated by "Upplands Lokaltrafik" travel between Stockholm-Arlanda Airport and Uppsala (bus no. 801 and 802).

Taxi

The other quick method of transportation between Stockholm-Arlanda Airport and locations in Stockholm or Uppsala is by taxi. All taxi companies are required to offer fixed prices when going from the airport, which takes away the guess-work of how much the fare will cost (one can still request use of the taxi meter). Most companies also offer fixed prices to the airport. Approximate cost is 450 kr for the 35–50 minute journey to central Stockholm (2005) and the taxi can take four passengers (more if one orders a larger taxi).

Airport parking

Terminal parking, short-term and long-term parking is available at the airport. Parking rules are heavily enforced and parking fines constitute one source of revenue for Sigtuna municipality and the Airport Authority.

History

Terminal 4, formerly Inrikes 1 was originally designed for the Swedish domestic carrier Linjeflyg, and initiated in 1983. Linjeflyg and Scandinavian Airlines moved all operations from Stockholm-Bromma Airport to the new terminal at Arlanda in 1984. This was made to assemble the domestic and international departures between Scandinavian Airlines and Linjeflyg, but the terminal was unfortunately 25% underdimensioned from the beginning. For that reason Inrikes 2 was set up for SAS, who moved all domestic flights from Inrikes 1 to the new terminal in 1990.

Because of a recession in Swedish economy SAS wanted to move back in 1992, and again the two carriers shared the terminal. Also in 1992 the terminal got a new name, Terminal 4. Since 1999 the terminal has had its own express station for high-speed trains, connecting the terminal with Stockholm Central Station and Terminal 5.

The year 2006 marked Terminal 4:s first radical renovation program since it was completed in 1983

Cargo operators

In addition to being a busy passenger airport Stockholm-Arlanda is also a major cargo hub. Some of the operators include:

*British Airways World Cargo
*Cathay Pacific
*China Airlines
*DHL
*FedEx
*Jade Cargo International
*Korean Air Cargo
*TNT Airways
*UPS
*WOW Alliance
**SAS Cargo Group
**Lufthansa Cargo

There were 100,480 tonnes of air cargo passing Arlanda during 2007 [http://www.lfv.se/templates/LFV_InfoSida_70_30____36426.aspx Trafikstatistik från svenska flygplatser(swedish)] .

Environment

There is ongoing work to limit Arlanda's negative impact on the environment. Flying aircraft, airport facilities and traffic to and from the airport pollute all the immediate environment with emissions of noise and chemicals, and affect the global environment by emissions of greenhouse gases. In an effort to save electricity and reduce emissions of chem|CO|2, buildings on Arlanda use district heating with biofuels and district cooling using water from a nearby lake. The take-off charges for aircraft are based on the environmental performance of the aircraft and Arlanda is experimenting with Continuous Descent Approach landings, often referred to as "green landings". Fuel for the aircraft is transported by rail and pipeline. The train to the plane service Arlanda Express was built in order to reduce pollution from traffic to and from the airport.

Accidents, incidents and hijackings

*1 November 1969: A Linjeflyg Convair 440 registered as "SE-BSU" suffered an accident while being used for training purposes. After a simulated engine failure at take-off the left wing contacted the ground and the aircraft crash-landed after the nose and main landing gear collapsed. None of the four persons on board were killed, but the aircraft was written off. [ [http://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=19691101-1&lang=en ASN Aircraft accident Convair CV-440-75 SE-BSU Stockholm-Arlanda Airport (ARN) ] ]
* 5 January 1970: A Spantax Convair 990 registered as "EC-BNM" on a ferry flight from Stockholm-Arlanda Airport to Zürich Airport (ZRH) crashed while climbing after take-off. The aircraft had been scheduled for a charter flight earlier in the day, but the flight was cancelled after the no. 4 engine developed trouble. The decision was made to ferry the aircraft using three engines to Zurich for repairs and the aircraft departed at 10:54 p.m. from runway 19 (currently runway 19R). The aircraft contacted trees approximately 1,800 meters from the point of lift-off. Five of the 10 passengers and crew on board were killed and the aircraft was written off.
