Irish low-cost airline Ryanair has previously flown from Skavsta Airport, which is located approximately 80 minutes south of Stockholm by bus.

But now it will open routes from Arlanda Airport (approximately 47 minutes from Stockholm’s city centre by bus, or 18 minutes by the pricier express train) for the first time.

A Ryanair spokesperson spoke of “optimism for the future” as he announced the plans at a press conference on Thursday, saying that the airline would initially have two aircraft servicing Arlanda, and that it hoped to increase its fleet in the future.

Ryanair said that it would continue to operate from Skavsta despite the new Arlanda routes.

Scandinavian airline SAS plans to launch electric planes in 2028 

Despite a number of economic challenges, airline SAS has announced an agreement with a Swedish company that will enable it to purchase electric aircraft and add them to its fleet. 

Scandinavian airline SAS plans to launch electric planes in 2028 

SAS has signed an agreement with Swedish company Heart Aerospace that could see it operating electric planes from 2028, the airline said in a press statement.

The model of plane that SAS would purchase from Heart Aerospace seats 30 passengers and has a range of 200 kilometers, SAS wrote.

“Along with the entire industry, we are responsible for making air travel more sustainable,” CEO of SAS Anko van der Werff said in the statement.

“SAS is dedicated to transforming air travel so future generations can continue to connect the world and enjoy the benefits of travel – but with a more sustainable footprint,” he said.

The aircraft will be installed with a hybrid system enabling them to double their range, SAS wrote.

“This has the potential to be a significant step on SAS’ sustainability journey, enabling zero-emission flights on routes within Scandinavia,” the press release stated. 

SAS has previously been involved in the development of another electric aircraft, the ES-30, which it partnered with Heart Aerospace on in 2019.

“The electric airplane will be a good supplement to our existing fleet, serving shorter routes in Denmark, Norway and Sweden in a more sustainable way,” van der Werff said.
