Irish low-cost airline Ryanair has previously flown from Skavsta Airport, which is located approximately 80 minutes south of Stockholm by bus.
But now it will open routes from Arlanda Airport (approximately 47 minutes from Stockholm’s city centre by bus, or 18 minutes by the pricier express train) for the first time.
A Ryanair spokesperson spoke of “optimism for the future” as he announced the plans at a press conference on Thursday, saying that the airline would initially have two aircraft servicing Arlanda, and that it hoped to increase its fleet in the future.
Ryanair said that it would continue to operate from Skavsta despite the new Arlanda routes.
These are the new routes:
From Stockholm Arlanda: Departing flights per week
Banja Luka: 2
London Stansted: 7
Milan Bergamo: 3
Warsaw Modlin: 5
