Getting Around in Sweden

By Air

The domestic airlines in Sweden offer quick, comfortable and safe transport from Malmö in the south to Kiruna in the north. You have a bird's eye view over the entire length of the country for around three hours. Because of the size of Sweden, it is almost like flying between the seasons.

There are a number of airlines that, taken together, cover the majority of the country. SAS is the largest domestic operator at Sweden's major airports. Most domestic flights depart from Arlanda, north of Stockholm, where you can fly directly to virtually all of Sweden's inland airports.

Travelling from Arlanda to Stockholm is possible either by the rapid transit Arlanda Express train, Airport buses, commuter train or taxi. You will also find most of the established car rental firms at Arlanda.

Other airports close to Stockholm are Bromma, Skavsta-Nyköping and Västerås. All these airports have airport buses and taxis.

You should check in at the airport in good time prior to your departure due to increased safety controls. Always check with your airline as to the time required before checking in. Times vary due to the amount of passengers at different times of the day.

The policy for most airlines is for checking in to be completed 15 minutes prior to departure, i.e. when the gate closes. Some airlines allow passengers carrying hand baggage only to go directly to the gate. Domestic tickets are purchased either directly from the relevant airline (via sales points or via the Internet) or from travel agents.

By Rail

Sweden has a highly efficient rail network spanning the entire country. Visitors travel smoothly and comfortably across the countryside on some of Europe’s most modern trains. First and second-class cars are available. On longer trips, couchettes and sleeping cars facilities are provided, such as the Nordpilen (the Northern Arrow which runs from Göteborg to Östersund/Storlien and back). Long distance trains generally have a buffet car (non-smoking).

As an extension to the railway network, buses operate on a frequent basis as a link to smaller cities and villages. These buses can be booked in connection with your railway ticket.

The Swedish rail network is operated by a few major train operators; SJ, Tågkompaniet, BK Tåg, LINX, Connex and Inlandsbanan.

The Swedish high-speed train X 2000, travels at up to 200 km/hour (125 mph) on all major routes and offers the highest standards of comfort, with radio and music channels outlets at all seats. In full-fare business class you will be served a meal at your seat, and in second class you have access to a Bistro car, where hot or cold meals are available.
