Ryanair is celebrating its one-year anniversary of setting up operations and opening a base at Stockholm Arlanda Airport for the 2021 winter season. Ryanair initially based two aircraft at the airport and launched 23 direct routes. Since opening its base, the carrier has placed four aircraft in Stockholm and until now flown some 1,5 million passengers to and from Arlanda. All in all, the airline has now launched 44 new European routes, five of which are domestic – to Gothenburg Landvetter, Malmö, Luleå, Visby and Skellefteå. Twenty destinations are new for the airport and complement Arlanda’s other destinations on offer.
The company will offer its customers in Sweden affordable fares for their travel this winter with promotional fares starting from USD 25 each way for flights between October 22, 2022, to January 23, 2023, already found for booking from the company’s website.

“It is with great joy that we welcome Ryanair’s continued expansion in the Swedish market. During its first year of operation at Stockholm Arlanda Airport, it launched 38 new routes, five of them domestic, and has become one of Swedavia’s biggest and fastest-growing airlines. The new routes from Arlanda to exciting destinations in Europe to be launched this winter are an important addition and complement the airport’s existing range of routes.
Nearly half of the destinations launched by the carrier are new to Arlanda, which enables people to meet and visit loved ones in even more places around Europe. Its network contributes to improved access both in Sweden and abroad, and direct routes are crucial for regional growth and the tourism industry throughout Sweden. We have had a good partnership with Ryanair for many years, and we look forward to further developing it going forward,” says Charlotte Ljunggren, Chief Commercial Officer at Swedavia.
