Stockholm Skavsta Airport (Swedish: Stockholm Skavsta flygplats), or Nyköping Airport (IATA: NYOICAO: ESKN) is an international airport near Nyköping, Sweden, 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) northwest of its urban area and approximately 100 kilometres (62 mi) southwest of Stockholm. It is served by low-cost airlines and cargo operators and is the third largest airport in Sweden, with an ability to handle 2.5 million passengers annually.[4]

The airport is located far outside the Stockholm Municipality and Stockholm County, but uses Stockholm for marketing purposes anyway. Locally the airport is referred to simply as Skavsta.


An airbase during World War II, the airport was used as a military airport until 1980, when it was taken out of service.

In 1984, the council of Nyköping Municipality, where the airport is located, decided to take over its control and resume its activities. Therefore, in 1998, the Nyköping municipal council put 90% of the capital of the airport up for sale with the objective of strengthening its commercial management and enabling investments for its expansion. They acquired this parcel of shares and began the transformation of Skavsta, which has become the second airport of Stockholm and the favoured option for inhabitants who live in the area south of the Swedish capital.[5]

The airport has a capacity of 2.5 million passengers per annum and is designed for expansion in the future.[4] It is owned by ADC & HAS, the same company which owns Belfast International Airport, Orlando Sanford International Airport, Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (Liberia, Costa Rica), Mariscal Sucre International Airport (Quito, Ecuador), and Juan Santamaría International Airport (San José, Costa Rica).


Facilities available to passengers include: Exchange office, cash machines (ATM), lost property office, post office. Baby changing facilities are present at WCs. Paid Internet access is available throughout the terminal.[6]
