SpottersWiki icon.png Many airlines have modified their schedules as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, please consult a flight tracking site such as FlightAware or FlightRadar24 or airline web sites for current flight information.
Some areas are restricting non-essential activities in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Please ensure that spotting is not temporarily prohibited by a local public health order before heading to the airport.

Arlanda is the largest and busiest airport in Sweden with around 20 million passengers in 2012 where you can spot mostly nordic airlines (SAS, Norwegian,...), but also Ethiopian or Thai. What is most striking about spotting at this location is that it is set in beautiful natural area surrounded by forests and lakes which make it a blast just to walk around and enjoy the scenery.

Arland aiport has three active runways: two of them are 2500 m long and one 3300 m long. The longest one (01L/19R) is most often used for both landings and take offs, but unfortunately that one is the furtherst from the terminal and most difficult to get to. Shots of aircraft on this runway is possible from the within the terminals (at the gates), but you have to have at least a 300mm lens and it is through glass so the quality is not overwhelming. All of the spots described bellow relate to the other two runways (01R/19L and 08/26) and most photos you see taken at Arlanda are from these two.

Very easy to find is another spot and it is not far from the official pavillion. Both are in sight of each other. This one is basically anywhere along the eastern side of RWY 19L/01R where there is good light till noon. Shots of both lining up and landing aircraft, onto 19L, can be had. To ge there, walk down from the shelter and make a left, head towards the IBIS airport hotel. Do not walk all the way to the hotel, but continue along the fence and pick your spot.
