Arrival

By Plane:

There are 3 possible airports fairly convenient to get to Stockholm:
  • Arlanda Airport - The main airport, from here you can take the commuter train directly to Älvsjö or a Bus coach (flygbussarna.se) to the central station. There is also both normal trains and express trains going to the central station.
  • Bromma Airport - The secondary airport, easiest from here would be a Bus coach (flygbussarna.se) to the central station, and then take the commuter train to Älvsjö. If you are fine with walking about 15 minutes then you can take local transport. (Easiest would be tvärbanan från Karlsbodavägen to Årstaberg and there swap to Commuter train).
  • Skavsta Airport - Located in Nyköping but still marked as Stockholm according to Ryanair. Has some cheap flights. To get from here the Bus coach (flygbussarna.se) to Stockholm central station is practically the only option.
