Flying to Denmark might seem like a silly idea if you want to get to Sweden, but the border here is so porous that it really makes no difference. Kastrup handles far more international flights than Malmö’s airport (including transatlantic services), and is just a 20-minute train ride from Malmö city centre.
As long as you have a valid visa for the Schengen area, you can pass freely between Denmark and Sweden. (If you have a passport issued in another European Union country, you don’t need to worry about this).
Direct trains for Malmö leave from Terminal Three every 20 minutes, arriving at Malmö Arena (Malmö Hyllie Station) less than 20 minutes later. Tickets costs around 110 SEK and can be bought from the office above the railway station. If you want to save time you can book online via the ACP Rail website.
A slower but cheaper alternative is to take a bus from outside terminal two to Malmö’s Central Station. Swebus runs two or three services per day across the bridge to Sweden, with tickets priced at around 49 SEK.
Rival company Nettbuss covers the same route, with up to nine services a day and identical prices. Journeys with both bus companies take around 40 minutes.
The final option is to take a taxi. Cabs for Sweden leave from outside Terminal Three and you can expect to pay around 750 SEK .
Malmö Airport is around 30 minutes from the Arena.
The cheapest way to get from Malmö airport into the city is by bus. Frequent Flygbussarna buses leave from outside the airport once or twice per hour throughout the day (there’s a less frequent service on Saturdays).
The journey to Malmö’s Central Station takes around 40 minutes. Tickets cost 109 SEK one-way, or 199 SEK for an open return that’s valid for three months. You’ll get a small discount if you buy online. Otherwise you can buy tickets from the information desk inside the airport, or on the bus (card payments only).
A one-way journey will cost you around 450 SEK.
High-speed trains from around Sweden stop at Malmö Central Station. These trains come equipped with wide seats, plenty of leg room, and even free 4G WiFi. For exact timetable, prices, and ticket purchase, go to SJ‘s site.
By car you can use the major entry points to Hyllie from Annetorpsvägen in the North, from Pildammsvägen in the East and from Lorensborgsgatan in the West. These take you to the main streets, Hyllie Boulevard, Hyllie Allé and Hyllie Stationsgata.
There is a drop-off/pick-up place on Arenagatan 17. There is also a parking area alongside Point Hyllie’s northern building.
