Göteborg Landvetter Airport (IATA: GOT, ICAO: ESGG) is an international airport serving the Gothenburg (Swedish: Göteborg) region in Sweden. With just over 6.8 million passengers in 2018 it is Sweden's second-largest airport after StockholmArlanda.[2] Landvetter is also an important freight airport. During 2007, 60.1 thousand tonnes of air cargo passed through Landvetter,[3] about 60% of the capacity of Arlanda.

The airport is named after Landvetter locality, which is in Härryda municipality. It is 11 NM (20 km; 13 mi) east-southeast[1] of Gothenburg and 40 km (25 mi) west of Borås. It is operated by Swedavia, the national airport company. Since the closure of Göteborg City Airport for commercial operations, it's the city's only commercial passenger airport.

History

The airport was opened by king Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden on 3 October in 1977.[4] Passenger services, previously at Torslanda Airport[5], north of Gothenburg, were moved to Landvetter in 1977.[6] In 2001, some budget airlines began serving the former military base in Säve, which was renamed from Säve Flygplats to Gothenburg City Airport. That airport was closed down in winter 20142015 because of large reconstruction needs, meaning an increase of traffic on Landvetter of almost a million annual passengers. There has been a tendency that international air travel has increased, especially on tourists, while domestic has declined somewhat (mostly business travel).[citation needed]

In 2013 the international terminal was extended significantly with new shops, and in 2014 the domestic and international terminals were joined into a single terminal.

On 14 April 2015 Swedavia announced a 10-year long contract with DHL Express to build a new 7500 m² large cargo terminal, replacing the old 1700 m². The construction will begin in spring 2015 and is underway for one year. This was a step included in plans for Airport City.[7] In 2018-2020 the terminal building will be enlarged, with three new air bridges.[8] There are also plans to build a shortcut on the railway GothenburgBorås with a tunnel and a railway station under the airport. Construction start is planned to be 2020 and operation estimated by 2023.[9]

Terminals

Landvetter Airport has traditionally had two terminals, domestic and international, but they have merged into one common terminal. In 2009 all baggage drop was moved to in the international terminal, since all baggage had to be screened with new regulations. In 2014 the two terminals joined into one with all baggage collected at the arrivals hall in the previous international terminal. The transfer area, which has several shops, cafés and a restaurant, is accessible for all passengers since that year.

There are eight air bridges, at gates 1217, 19, and 20.[10] Gates 1011, 18A18H and 21C21D transport passengers to the aircraft via an airside bus transfer. Gate 21A/B is an aircraft stand without an air bridge, with a short walk to the aircraft instead. The eight air bridges are not enough, so airside bus transfer is regularly used. Traditionally gates 1015, which are accessed without clearing immigration, used to be limited to intra-Nordic flights but nowadays cater to all flights within the Schengen Area, which are treated as domestic flights. Gates 21A21D are located in the international transit area, used for flights outside the Schengen Area, and access is only possible after clearing immigration. Gate 19 and 20 are positionable so that, depending on upcoming flights, reaching them may (signed 19B-20B) or may not (signed 19A-20A) require clearing immigration. The freight terminal uses gate numbers below 10.

The airport has a VIP area, where travellers for a fee can go through a dedicated security check, wait in the VIP lounge and be transported by car to the aeroplane, avoiding mix with other, non paying passengers. The VIP area can also hold wedding ceremonies.[11]
