ABOUT THE AIRPORT
Stockholm-Västerås Airport (VST) is situated close to the E18 motorway, around 5 km south of Västerås town centre with regular flights to Helsinki, London, Alicante and Malaga. The airport has a restaurant, bars and a shop.
It takes around 80 minutes from Stockholm Central Station to the airport by Airport Coaches (Flygbussar). If travelling by train from Stockholm Central Station, via Sundbyberg, Bålsta and Enköping, the journey time is around 60 minutes. From Västerås Central Station, shuttle bus No. 3 (included in the price of your train ticket) will take you to the airport.
You can also travel by train from the district of Bergslagen to Västerås Central Station from where you catch shuttle bus No. 3. This departs for the airport every ten minutes throughout the day.
For those of you who prefer to travel by car, there are a number of reasonably priced short and long stay car parks within a short walking distance of the airport terminal.
Welcome to Stockholm-Västerås Airport!
Environmentally certified airport
Stockholm-Västerås Airport has long been working for a sound and healthy environment. Airport operations are certified according to ISO 1400 which means that in addition to compliance, the airport defines environmental objectives. For example, by using oil separators and so-called bunded tanks, the risk of fuel spills is prevented. We no longer use nitrogen-based deicing chemicals and collect all deicing fluids. Noise complaints are followed up and using a noise monitoring system, we are able to show the exact position of our aircrafts. We have also looked into the possibility of building a solar farm within the airport area. We have an environmental monitoring programme and report our environmental activities in an annual environmental report.
Flying came in earnest to Västerås shortly after the First World War. At first, the airstrip was used for a military pilot scheme that eventually turned into W1 or Wing 1 of the Swedish Air Force. This was based at the airport for another 50 years, until 1983. Hence, the field of aviation has been part of Västerås since the 1920’s in the form of a potential future industry and public service. Flight operations at Västerås have grown extensively since the 1970’s and now includes general aviation, charter and scheduled flights. Our tradition in education lives on with the possibility of studying aviation at Västerås Upper Secondary School and continuing with a higher education in aviation at the SAA (Scandinavian Aviation Academy) - a unique concept for Sweden. The tradition of flying is maintained and nurtured by a number of flying clubs in and around Västerås and not least, by Västerås Aviation Museum.
