Arlanda international airport at Stockholm received its first jet aircraft in 1960; other principal airports are Sturup at Malmö and Landvetter at Göteborg. The Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) is operated jointly by Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, each of which owns a 50% share of the company operating in its own territory; the other half in Sweden is owned by private investors. Linjeflyg, a subsidiary of SAS, operates a domestic service to most of the larger cities and resorts. In 2003, about 11.586 million passengers were carried on scheduled domestic and international flights.
The busiest airport in Sweden is by far Stockholm-Arlanda Airport which has great connection with the rest of Swedish airports and it has regular domestic and international flights. Stockholm Arlanda as its mentioned in airports in Sweden map is the most suitable airport if you are traveling to Stockholm region. If you are traveling to southern parts of Sweden, better choice would be Gothenburg or Malmö Airport (or even Copenhagen since it is a larger airport and it has a great connection with Sweden). The second largest airport in Sweden serves the city of Gothenburg and it is located in the municipality of Härryda, 20 kilometres southeast of Gothenburg city centre. The airport has two terminals, one for domestic flights and the other for international flights.
Another important Stockholm airport, but with a lot less passengers is Stockholm-Skavsta Airport. Also known as Nyköping Airport, Stockholm-Skavsta Airport is located 100 kilometres southwest of Stockholm as you can see in airports in Sweden map and it serves as a hub for low-cost airline companies, more precisely Ryanair and Wizz Air. Stockholm-Bromma Airport is the closest of all the airports serving the city of Stockholm since it is located 7.4 kilometres northwest of Stockholm. Formerly known as Sturup Airport, Malmö Airport is the fourth busiest airport in Sweden. Though it serves the city Malmö and the rest of the county, the people travelling to Malmö prefer using Copenhagen Airport because it is closer to Malmö and more convenient. Luleå Airport is situated in Kallax, about 7 kilometres southeast of Luleå city centre.
