Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN)
History, Facts and Overview
Stockholm's Arlanda Airport was founded towards the end of the 1950s in the suburb of Marsta, when it was mainly used for recreational purposes. In 1962, great celebrations were afoot when the airport officially opened for business and it was immediately used for a series of international flights, which were switched from the nearby Stockholm Bromma Airport.
By the 1980s, further traffic was transferred to Arlanda Airport from Bromma Airport, only this time is was domestic flights. The recently built terminal was used to accommodate the extra passengers, and in 1990 a further two terminals were built, followed by a third runway ten years later.
There are many ATMs located around the terminal, as well as a number of useful bank branches and bureaux de change. Options for dining and refreshments are more than plentiful and include popular names such as Café Ritazza and McDonalds, with around 35 eateries in total.
Over 40 shops can be found in the SkyCity zone, while for business passengers, Stockholm Arlanda Airport boasts almost 50 different conference and meeting rooms. Also worth noting, the Stockholm Radisson SAS SkyCity Hotel is located onsite at Arlanda Airport and is well equipped to receive business visitors.
