In line with several other capital cities around Europe, flyers on certain airlines will be able to check in long before reaching the airport itself, P4 Radio Stockholm reports.
At the moment the service will only be available to those flying with certain airlines, including SAS, Norwegian, Finnair, Höga Kusten and Iceland Air, although it is expected that Air France and KLM will join the scheme soon.
“By checking in right at the Cityterminalen bus station and getting your boarding card and baggage tags, it is simply a matter of leaving your bag at the drop-off counter at Stockholm Arlanda and going through the security checkpoint.
Since both passengers and the airport are prepared, the process is faster and the waiting time shorter,” says Thomas Cassel, Head of Commercial and Terminal Business at Stockholm Arlanda Airport, Swedavia.
Passengers arriving at the Central station will be able to sort out all ticketing formalities before boarding their bus and simply drop their luggage on arrival at the airport.
There are similar check-in machines available at the Arlanda Express train terminal and long term car parks at the airport.
