Arlanda Airport - Stockholm

Arlanda Airport (IATA: ARN; ICAO: ESSA) is the main international airport (served by SAS, BA and many others) and is situated 40 km (25 mi) north of the city.

There are several methods for travelling between Stockholm and Arlanda.

* By taxi: Major taxi companies operate on a fixed price basis between Arlanda and central Stockholm. Prices at the taxi stands currently range from 450SEK (Transfer Taxi) to 520SEK. Generally, you can freely choose among the waiting taxis or ask the operator for a specific company. A taxi ride to central Stockholm takes approximately 40 minutes. With some companies, you can get a lower price if you pre-book your ride. With Airport Cab (+46 8 25 25 23) the cost is 430SEK from Arlanda to Stockholm, 390SEK from Stockholm to Arlanda. With Taxi Solna (+46 8 280 280) the cost is 445SEK from Arlanda to Stockholm, 350SEK from Stockholm to Arlanda. See the Taxi section below for some general advice on taxi travel in Stockholm.
* By dedicated rail: The Arlanda Express Train, which leaves from the lower level (basement) of each terminal (Arlanda South/Södra and Arlanda North/Norra), costs 240SEK one-way (children, youth up to the age of 25, and ISIC card holders 120SEK, two adults 250SEK during weekends and holidays), but gets you to the Central Station in 20 minutes and departs every 15 minutes during the day. Tickets can be bought from kiosks at the platform and online (50SEK extra is charged when buying a ticket on board.

* By regular rail: Regular trains serve the airport through a third station, Arlanda Central, located under Sky City between terminal 4 and 5. Services include the Uppsala commuter rail (Upptåget) which goes northwards to Uppsala and Tierp and sometimes Gävle, but also Upplands Väsby, which is a connection point to Stockholm suburban trains to central Stockholm. This option takes 35 minutes and local transport tickets can be used and bought at the entrance to the station, though you have to pay a station access fee of 60 SEK (or 40 SEK for people under the age of 20). There are also regional trains on the Linköping - Stockholm - Gävle route, which costs 95 SEK (2nd class) to central Stockholm and takes 20 minutes, like the Arlanda Express. This service operates only once every other hour, but frankly, if you are on time there is no reason whatsoever to take Arlanda Express, as the regional train is much cheaper, though not as cheap as local transport. Finally, long-distance trains from Stockholm operate to points in central Sweden, like Sundsvall, mora or Östersund. It is not, however, permitted to use these trains to travel from the airport to central Stockholm.
