Runway use

The aerodrome has three runways, which are used in various configurations depending on wind and time of day. When runway 08 is used for departure, the direction of turn and SID identifier will depend on which runway is being used for landing. The current recommended runway configuration is shown in the box to the left.

IFR clearance

The IFR clearance is issued by DEL. Traffic should be instructed to follow a standard departure (SID), based on the current runway in use. Coordination is required with Stockholm Control for traffic unable to follow SID. When the IFR clearance has been issued, DEL should instruct traffic of the next frequency to use for pushback/taxi.

Taxiing

Ground movements should follow the published taxi routes in the AIP. Deviation from these routes should be coordinated with fellow ground controllers. Aircraft should be instructed to taxi to an intermediate holding position before the next ground controller's area of responsibility, for example taxi Z, hold short ZH. Hand off to next ground controller should be made sufficiently early to avoid having the aircraft stop.

Parking positions

Terminal 2 is used by OneWorld, SkyTeam and low-cost carriers such as easyJet and Vueling.

Terminals 3 and 4 are dedicated to domestic prop and jet traffic respectively.

Terminal 5 is used by Star Alliance carries, Norwegian Air shuttle, all long haul flights and charter flights.

The below table can be used as a general guideline for assigning parking positions at the airport.

Gate Usage Example airlines and types
1-10, 11-16 Medium jets, Schengen AUA, DLH, NAX, SAS, VKG, BLX
17-20 Medium jets, non-Schengen NAX, VKG, BLX
31-44 Medium jets, domestic NAX, SAS
52-61 Medium/light props, domestic NTJ, PHX
62-66 Medium jets, Schengen, non-Star Alliance AFR, BER, FIN, KLM, NTJ, NLY, VLG
67-69 Medium jets, non-Schengen, non-Star Alliance BAW, 
F gates Medium/heavy, Schengen and non-Schengen SAS, THA, UAE, 
G gates Props WIF, SAS
H, J, K gates Hangar/maintanence area  
L gates Helicopters  
M gates De-Icing. Can be used for remote stands if required  
R gates Cargo - Jet aircraft  
S gates Cargo - prop aircraft  

Currently, traffic coming from the following airports should be considered Schengen traffic:

BI**, EB**, ED**, EE**, EF**, EH**, EK**, EN**, EP**, ES**, EV**, EY**, LE**, LF**, LG**, LH**, LI**, LJ**, LO'**, LP**, LS**, LZ**

Takeoff

Reduced departure separation is in effect at Arlanda. An aircraft may be cleared for takeoff as soon as the preceding departure is airborne. The preceding departure does not need to cross the opposite runway threshold or reach a certain altitude before the next takeoff can be commenced - it just has to be airborne. Reduced departure separation does not apply to departures where wake turbulence separation minima apply, or to subsequent departures following the same departure route. In addition, at least 120 seconds of separation should be provided behind a slow moving departure (prop/turbo prop), if the succeeding departure is a jet.

Airspace

Arlanda Control Zone (CTR) has an upper limit of 1200FT/2000FT and is class C airspace. Service to traffic in the CTR should be provided in accordance with the airspace classification. Coordination is required between the two tower for traffic wishing to transit from East to West and vice versa.

Approach

ATS Positions

ID Frequency Callsign Area of responsibility
ARR-W 123.750 Stockholm Control Approach west sector, SFC-FL195 except S-APP airspace
DEP-W 124.1 Stockholm Control Departure west sector, normally combined with APP-W
ARR-E 126.650 Stockholm Control East sector, SFC-FL195 except S-APP airspace
APP-S 120.150 Stockholm Control South sector, variable levels. Responsible for Bromma arrivals and departures
DIR-E 120.5 Stockholm Control Arlanda final sector

The five approach sectors in combinations are responsible for the Stockholm TMA, which is class C airspace. Service should be provided in accordance with the airspace classification and according to the standard agreements, as outlined below. The minimum separation within Stockholm TMA is 3 NM / 1000 FT. Traffic flows in the TMA are shown on the below illustration.

ESSA


In addition to the below agreements, it should normally be coordinated with ACC to route arriving traffic direct to appropriate arrival fixes (LNA, NAK, TEB, ERK), depending on runway in use.

Arlanda Director (DIR-E)

Vectoring traffic to final approach to runway in use. Normally, ILS approaches should be used. Visual approach are also available except to runways 01L/R for noise abatement; Arlanda Tower must be notified of traffic flying a visual approach.

Traffic will be transferred to final descending to 4000 FT. When vectoring for runway 01L / 01R, traffic will pass through APP-S airspace and must not be descended below 4000FT until north of the Bromma extended centreline, unless coordinated.

The minimum separation on final approach, within 10 NM from the runway, is 2,5 NM. However, it is recommended to use at least 3,5 NM, to give the preceding aircraft sufficient time to vacate the runway.

Transfer of control and transfer of communication to tower shall take place when an aircraft is 4 NM from touchdown.

When runway 01L/R is in use for landing at Arlanda, traffic to Bromma must remain south of the airfield at all times. Early descent is encouraged to remain clear of Arlanda inbounds.
