Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all regular services and hours may be subject to change. Thus, if the idea is to spend the night in the public area, consider a plan B in case the stay inside the airport is only allowed for those who are close to boarding.
Spending the night at the airport
Arlanda airport operates with numerous international flights, so there is a lot of movement, but it is usually quieter at night. Although it is open 24 hours a day, it is possible that Terminal 3 closes for a few hours. The place can get pretty cold, so it is best to have a sleeping bag or blankets.
Where to rest: You can find numerous seats and couches throughout the enclosure (the best ones are located next to gate F33), especially in the SkyCity building, inside which the upper floors are quieter. In terminals 2, 4 and 5, there are VIP lounges with more amenities, but they close at night. Lastly, inside the SkyCity building, you will find a couple of hotels.
Baggage: There are lockers so you can forget about your bags until check-in time.
Eating and drinking: Commercial stores close at night.
Wi-Fi: Free for 3 hours.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, children's play areas, baby changing rooms.
Inside the SkyCity building are located the Clarion Hotel Arlanda Airport Terminal and the Radisson Blu Airport Terminal Hotel. There are other options in the surroundings, some with shuttle services, among them:
