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.

Next to the threshold of Runway 19L there is a small wooden shelter on a hill provided by the Swedish Airport Authority. This weather protected spot gives you a good view over runway 19L/01R, taxiway W and the de-icing area. There is no glass and you are well above any fences, so you get unobstructed views. However, in terms of photography, this spot is only good for taking pictures of aircraft passing around on the taxiway W or skyshots as the runway 19L/01R is too far to allow quality landing or take off shots.

Getting there is easy if you have a bike or a car and there is also plenty of space to park. You can also walk to the spot from the terminal 5 but this is around a 30 min walk. A better option is to take a bus - do not take the three digit buses (i.e.583 etc) as those you have to pay for and the system is complicated and expensive. Instead, take the airport yellow transfer buses (two digit) because these are free and run often (except weekends, check schedule). To get to the shelter, the best option is to take bus number 10 and get off at the SAS-Hangaren stop. From there walk back to the main road and follow the sidewalks to the east (walk under the taxiway W) to the shelter (10 minute walk). Also, if you ask at the Information booth at the terminals, they will give you a map of the airport and explain how to get to the shelter.

===Aprons by RWY 26===
 
If you walk further out behind the shelter, you get good views of the aprons by the RWY 08/26. Shots of aircraft on the runway are possible from here, but the quality is again not overwhelming because of the angle and distance. However, you can try your luck to see what is happening at the aprons.

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 get 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.

From the airport cafeteria most activities can be observed. Some photos can also be obtained from here. The cafeteria seems to tolerate spotters as long as they buy something and prices are reasonable. Good place in the winter when it's freezing outside. It is also possible to wonder from one terminal to the other (connected by walkways) and take pictures, although obviously through glass.
