There are a few exceptions where SJ is still waiting to find out from the Transport Administration where planned railway maintenance work may affect their routes.

Tickets that are yet to be released will be indicated in the booking system as banarbete planeras (“rail maintenance being planned”) but won’t be possible to book just yet.

Otherwise, most domestic trains between September 4th and December 9th, including both daytime and sleeper trains, are now open for booking via SJ’s website or app.

At the time of writing, it is only possible to book tickets with the SJ Euronight train to Hamburg and Berlin until September 30th. Stockholm-Hamburg tickets from October 1st onwards will however be released “shortly”, according to SJ.

Travellers complained earlier this year after SJ’s ticket release for Christmas and Easter travel was significantly delayed due to a lack of information on maintenance work.

Evacuation called off at Gothenburg’s Landvetter airport

The northern part of Landvetter airport in Gothenburg was closed and evacuated after a suspicious object, later deemed to be safe, was found at security.

According to police, the object in question was an abandoned bag.

The alarm was raised just after 1.30pm on Friday.

The closed off area of the airport included the check-in hall, and all outgoing flights were paused until around 3pm.

“The incident is now over and the airport is no longer closed,” press officer Ellen Laurin from Swedavia said. “Outgoing flights will soon be able to depart, while arriving flights have been able to land as usual.”

The owner of the bag has been found, police said.
