Stockholm Skavsta Airport (Swedish: Stockholm Skavsta flygplats), or Nyköping Airport (IATA: NYO, ICAO: 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 fifth-largest airport in Sweden, with an ability to handle 2.5 million passengers annually. It is the least busy airport in the world to operate with 2 runways.[4]

The airport is located far outside Stockholm Municipality and Stockholm County, but uses 'Stockholm' for marketing purposes. 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.

The council of Nyköping Municipality, where the airport is located, decided in 1984 to take over its control and resume its activities. Civilian passenger air traffic started in September 1984, mainly to Arlanda which at the time had almost all air traffic in Stockholm. In 1998 (after deregulation allowing airlines and airports to compete with each other to a higher degree) 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 that 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).
