Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 16 June 2009

Sweden is now allowing SAS passengers from overseas to clear customs and immigration at 10 upcountry airports for flights connecting via Stockholm. The new service follows successful trials in April and May.

Thanks to the new service, SAS passengers no longer have to pick up their luggage in the international terminal at Stockholm-Arlanda airport and transfer it to the domestic terminal for upcountry flights.

The 10 airports that now offer customs and immigration clearance are Gothenburg, Kalmar, Kiruna, Lulea, Malmo, Ronneby, Sundsvall / Harnosand, Umea, Are / Ostersund, Angelholm / Helsingborg.

"SAS has worked very closely with the Swedish authorities to make the travel experience easier for our transiting passengers," said Mr Hakan Olsson, Director and General Manager for SAS in Southeast Asia.

Only Skelleftea in the north of Sweden is exempt from the new service due to a lack of customs facilities at the airport.
