First phase of Stockholm Arlanda’s new Marketplace to open next summer


Swedavia today announced that a number of new shops will open at Stockholm Arlanda Airport next summer when the first phase of its biggest ever commercial investment at the gateway is completed.

Located in the planned new Marketplace development, the new retail outlets will include a number of well-known Swedish brands, and there will also be a brand-new gift concept, with a focus on Nordic products.

The openings will coincide with unveiling of a modern new security checkpoint in Terminal 5.

“Shops for outdoor life, electronics and much more will open”, according to Swedavia, which adds says that the airport’s tax-free shop will also have brand-new larger premises.

It notes that the new security checkpoint being built in Terminal 5 will boast state-of-the-art technology to make things easier for passengers.

The new 11,000 square metre Marketplace, which is being created next door to the security checkpoint, represents Swedavia’s largest ever commercial investment at Stockholm Arlanda.

Being built in three phases, the first will open in the summer of 2023, and the whole Marketplace will be completed by the end of 2024/beginning of 2025.

“Part of our commercial strategy for the public tendering of new shops for the Marketplace has been to create good opportunities for shopping, whether it is planned or more spontaneous in nature,” explains Charlotte Ljunggren, chief marketing officer at Swedavia and acting airport director at Stockholm Arlanda.

“A varied offering and a broad range of prices that appeal to different customer groups have been important aspects.”

Among the newcomers are many Swedish brands such as GANT and J. Lindeberg. The Sweshop concept is also a new feature, with its exciting shops for gifts and an assortment that pays tribute to Nordic handcrafts, culture and heritage.

”People have expressed a desire for more Nordic, Swedish and local goods to buy as gifts, and that is one of many things we are pleased that we will now be able to offer,” notes Ljunggren.
