Arlanda Airport Stockholm

Yesterday was such a different day to the norm. I got to relive my inner aviation geek and explore Arlanda Stockholm Airport in Sweden.

After a smooth flight with Norwegian, I arrived in Stockholm just in time for fika and tea and then it was time for our first tour of the day.

The first visit was to a now disused ramp tower. The ramp tower was used to control the traffic going into and out of a concourse and gates. It now exists as a backup. Seriously a pretty good office view!

What the ramp tower looked before it was revamped. Lots of screens!

Our next stop was a full bus tour of Arlanda Stockholm Airport; first stopping at the VIP section, where VIP’s, royalty and CIP’s (commercially important passengers) can wait for their flight. You can even get married there! A completely different world away from the madding crowd in the main terminal.

Our bus journey then took us to an SAS aircraft hangar, where we could get up and close with a couple of aircraft.

After a short refreshment stop with RC chocolates ( available in the terminal) and some sparkling juice, we were finally allowed to see the revamped ramp tower!

Airport Facilities For Families

The airport has a kids’ play area in Terminals 4 and 5. (A big renovation for kids facilities is on the cards- so watch this space!) and complimentary strollers are provided should you need.

You can find these in terminals 2,4 and 5. Arlanda also has a facility called Kids track– a security screening entrance for families with children.

This is in terminal 5 by gates F26-F69. Baby change facilities are available throughout the airport, and a toy store too.

Fika is not a cake :) It is a meal concept, that includes coffee (or tea if you are not swedish...) and something sweet to eat (also SOMETIMES might be a small sandwich). This is not a specific set meal or danish or cake or drink. Great article tho!
