Flights to Gothenburg 

Gothenburg has one main airport (Goteborg Landvetter Airport) about 12 miles east of the city, near the town of Landvetter.  

There are plenty of transport links between the airport and Gothenburg city centre and other places like Landvetter, Boras, Kungsportsplatsen and Stockholm.  


There are taxis that can transport you to and from the airport to your destination, but it’s always best to pre-book your airport transfers, to get a fixed price and guarantee your transport.

Ticket class 

If you want to fly to Gothenburg on a budget, then getting an economy ticket might be the best option, if you aren’t bothered about the frills.  

You’ll get standard seats and the standard food and drink selection. Pretty standard. For a bit more legroom, you could always upgrade to premium economy. 

For those of you who want to travel in the lap of luxury, business and first-class seats are also available with most airlines. You’ll get roomier seats, more legroom and a wider choice of food and drink and a few other perks, depending on the airline.  

When considering whether to get first or business-class tickets for your flights to Gothenburg, check to see what benefits are included, as you might find business class is significantly cheaper than first class, but the perks are similar.
