Sweden plane tickets & flights
Has very modern airports and reputable airlines.
We are checking out the possibilities to get to Sweden by air and we are also unveiling the domestic air travel possibilities. It is a big country, so this section will be interesting!
Good service between the big cities, but due to the fact that most of them are located in southern Sweden pretty close to each other, these are better approached by car or rail (cheaper).
Except Stockholm there are several international airports in Sweden that receive carriers from much of Europe. There are multiple small airlines in Sweden that serve the local demand for flights to popular vacation and business destinations.
