Airport Facts

Stockholm-Arlanda Airport (IATA: ARN, ICAO: ESSA), or simply Arlanda, is an international airport located in Sigtuna Municipality, 42 km north of Stockholm and 31 km south of Uppsala. It is the largest airport in Sweden, one of two major hubs of Scandinavian Airlines System, and one of Europe's largest airports.
The airport was first used in 1959, but only for practice flights. In 1960, it opened for general traffic, and in 1962 the official opening ceremony took place.

Arlanda International Airport has four terminals. Terminals 5 and 2 are used for international flights. Domestic flights are in terminals 3 and 4. The new central building, Arlanda North, opened late 2003, connecting terminal 5 with the newly built Pier F. All international flights handled by SAS and its Star Alliance partners use the new central building. An Arlanda South building, connecting terminals 2, 3 and 4, was also planned, but construction is currently suspended due to lack of funds. Between terminals 4 and 5 is the shopping centre Sky City, which also has a main line railway station. Furthermore, the Arlanda Express trains connect two stations at the airport with Stockholm. The airport has a capacity of about 25 million passengers per year.

The name Arlanda was decided after a competition prior to the airport opening. It is derived from Arland, an old name for the parish Ärlinghundra (now Husby-Ärlinghundra) where the airport is situated. The a was added in analogy with other Swedish place names ending with -landa, and also makes the name a pun on the Swedish verb "landa", which means "to land".

In 2004, 348 couples exchanged vows and were married at the airport in 2004, representing a 30% increase on 2003.
