ESMS Malmö

Note: Essential information is written in bold face.

Overview

Malmö Airport (Sturup) was opened in 1972 when Malmö’s old airport Bulltofta was closed. Since the Öresund bridge opened connecting Malmö and the south of Sweden with Copenhagen and Kastrup Airport, Sturup has lost most of its international destinations. Today the airport is dominated by domestic traffic to Stockholm (Arlanda and Bromma), low-cost airlines such as Wizz Air serving many destinations around mainly eastern Europe, as well as cargo traffic. In 2013 the airport served just over 2 million passengers.

The Malmö Air Traffic Control Centre (ATCC) is also located at the airport, providing area control over the south of Sweden and the Baltic Sea in Malmö AoR (ESMM), as well as approach control for Malmö Airport.
