From & To the airport

It's easy to get to and from the airport with the shuttle bus service Flygbussarna, the journey time is between 25 and 30 minutes. Buses leave outside the terminal building and the final stop is the central station Nils Ericssonterminalen.

You can buy your bus ticket online ahead of time, or from a ticket machine or the bus driver. Note that you cannot pay the driver in cash. Find here the Flygbyssarna time table and ticket information.

Alternatively, take the cheaper, but less frequent line, the Swebus Express.
