Stockholm Arlanda builds for more passengers

Swedavia to make “major investments” in two projects
Airport operator Swedavia says it will make “major investments” in two construction projects at Stockholm Arlanda over the next few years to meet the sharp increase in passenger volumes.
The two projects are being launched to make room for more aircraft and create smoother flows for passengers, the operator explains. Passenger numbers at Arlanda have risen by about 40% since 2010.
“The major investments that we have long been planning are now starting up in earnest in several areas at Stockholm Arlanda,” says Kjell-Åke Westin, Arlanda airport director. “There is a great need to handle the growing traffic volume and develop the airport in order to continue ensuring access by air for Stockholm and all of Sweden.”
Soon to be built is Apron E, a 100,000 sq m parking stand for planes that do not need to park at a gate. It will accommodate 11 “normal-sized” aircraft, Swedavia says, or five larger planes.
The new apron will provide “a high degree of services”, for instance easy access to air, electricity and fuel direct from the apron, staff facilities, a technical facilities building and parking area for vehicles.
Meanwhile, for smoother arrivals, the border control and security checkpoint for transfer passengers in the area for Gates 11-24 in Terminal 5 will be refurbished with two new passageways. More escalators and lifts will also be built between levels 3 and 4 and the ceiling will be raised for “a brighter, airier feel”.
