Arlanda Airport

Terminal 5 Arlanda Airport. Flights bound to the outside of Scandinavia. Enter lightly dressed swedes going on holiday mixed with your typical businessmen and foreign tourists and voilá; you have yourself a typical airport = )

Based 40 kilometres from Stockholm this airport opened in 1962 replacing the Bromma Airport that was built in 1936. Bromma was the main airport before Arlanda but due to a ever expanding city and a big increase in commercial flights it was deemed not suitable for further expandation.

Cue Arlanda which, being built quite far from Stockholm, was considered a safe bet for further expansions due to the distance. Ironically though it has encountered the same dilemma as Bromma did in the fifties. Suburbs as Upplands-Väsby and Märsta have objected to the airport building a fourth runway.
In any case, now you´ve seen a typical Terminal in Europes 15th largest airport =)
