Stockholm Airport Busses- Flygbussarna

Bus departing from terminal 4 at Arlanda.
I have already blogged about several ways to get from Arlanda airport to Stockholm and the Rival Hotel... taxi, commuter train and express train. There is another way to travel between Arlanda and the city and that is by bus! There are quite a few things to consider when choosing which mode of transport you want to use, like budget, time constraints, size of your party, convenience, amount of luggage, etc; Busses are a bit slower, though cheaper, than most of the other options... great for travelers with a budget and not in a rush.

The bus company is called Flygbussarna. Not only do they service Arlanda (the main international airport), but they also service the smaller airports in Stockholm... Bromma, Skavsta and Västerås. For Arlanda, they have busses going to City Terminal in downtown Stockholm (the main bus station, adjacent to the Central Train Station), to Stockholmsmässan (international congress center) as well as a new line that goes to Fridhemsplan on Kungsholmen and Hornstull on Södermalm, with the final destination in Liljeholmen (southern suburb). The trip between Arlanda and the City Terminal takes approximately 45 minutes and a ticket costs 119 SEK for adults, 99 SEK for youths and senior citizens. Tickets do cost less if you purchase them online ahead of time (105 SEK for adults and 89 SEK for youths and senior citizens). Tickets can be pre-purchased on their website! Otherwise you can buy the tickets at the airport, City Terminal or on board the bus (credit card only). You will find bus stops at Arlanda in front of terminals 2, 4 and 5 and the busses depart quite often... every 10-15 minutes (every 20 minutes to Liljeholmen).

While they are inexpensive, comfortable, environmentally friendly and convenient when it comes to departure frequency, keep in mind that you will have to then make your way to the Rival Hotel from the City Terminal or Hornstull (by taxi or subway). This raises the price and lessens the convenience factor... which is why I often recommend the commuter trains and taxis for our guests as both get you directly to the hotel (or at least within 4 blocks).
