All the oneworld-alliance airlines flying to Stockholm-Arlanda Airport will move to the airport’s Terminal 5 on November 24.

Until now, the oneworld airlines have used Stockholm-Arlanda’s Terminal 2, an older and (according to oneworld carrier Finnair) less-convenient terminal to use than the much newer Terminal 5. Oneworld carriers that serve Stockholm-Arlanda are British Airways, Finnair, Iberia and Hungary’s Malév.


Finnair says Terminal 5 at Stockholm-Arlanda is more modern and more spacious than Terminal 2, and will offer passengers shorter lobby-to-departure-gate distances and better services than the older terminal.

After changing terminals, the oneworld carriers will have a joint ticket office and a number of self-service check-in kiosks in the terminal. Passengers can also check in at check-in desks 33 to 44.

Stockholm-Arlanda is Stockholm's main international airport and despite the fact it is fairly distant from the center of the Swedish capital, it can be reached in 20 minutes from the city-center Stockholm Railway Station by means of the Arlanda Express

Finnair will send all its Arlanda-departing passengers automatic SMS reminders about the terminal change for a couple of weeks around the date of the move. The carrier actively sends important flight and service information to the mobile-phone numbers passengers list in their flight reservations.

“The Baggage Drop desk will be open all day and the security control will have more service points and a separate, fast lane for Business Class passengers and Finnair Plus Platinum, Gold and Silver and oneworld top-tier customers,” says Markku Remes, Finnair’s customer experience management manager. “The terminal will also have more shops and restaurants, as well as a wider range of products, than the old terminal.”

Departing and arriving oneworld flights will use Terminal 5’s F wing, gates F26 to F39. The oneworld airlines’ new, brightly lit-and-decorated lounge facility is also located in the same wing.

Using the Arlanda Express train, the journey from central Stockholm to Arlanda Airport takes 20 minutes and passengers can check in, if they wish, using the check-in kiosks at Stockholm Railway Station while waiting for the train.
