We are an international city airport centrally located which means that we are accessible wherever you are in the region and regardless of whether you travel by car, train or bus. We offer a fast and efficient route to other destinations in Europe and the world via Amsterdam and Copenhagen.
Linköping City Airport aims at being an efficient and accessible airport with personal service and an open atmosphere. Most of our flights are occupied by business travellers and we are aware of the demands and expectations put upon us.
At Linköping City Airport, aircraft lift off and land only minutes from the city centre. Our location next door to the E4 motorway and a main line rail track makes us a natural communications hub.
Linköping City Airport is situated in the heart of the county of Östergötland but also half way between Gothenburg and Malmö in the south and Stockholm on the east coast. If one takes a step back it is clear that Linköping City Airport is also right in the middle of the Nordic Triangle between the capital cities. This makes us a communication hub from many different perspectives.

As Sweden’s number one aviation city, Linköping has a long tradition within the aviation industry and air traffic. The first field was established at the beginning of the 1930’s.
Initially this field was used for testing and controlled flights by aircraft manufactured by Saab.
Since 1977 the Airport has held civilian status for scheduled air traffic with the first civilian air services starting in 1979. The Aviation Club now uses the original terminal building as a club house.
At the beginning of the 1980’s a new terminal building was constructed to cope with a capacity of 20,000 passengers per year.
In 1987 a new and larger terminal was built to cope with 100,000 passengers annually. Further work was later carried out on the terminal in 2003 to include reconstruction as well as some ground work, installation of new approach lights as well as approach aids.
2007 the airport terminal building was expanded with 600 sqm including arrival and departure areas.
Today Linköping City Airport is a modern and efficient international city airport with a capacity for 200,000 passengers per year and has in addition some very exciting future plans.
