Stockholm Arlanda Airport in Sweden has opened its refurbished Terminal 2, which will aim to improve passenger processing and the overall airport experience.

As part of the project, the terminal has been expanded by 2,000m² and will be further developed in 2015 with the addition of a new baggage sorting facility, bringing the total investment up to SEK400m ($60m).

Stockholm Arlanda Airport director Kjell-Åke Westin said that the improved Terminal 2 will mean that passengers have a better all-round experience and help enhance the impression of the airport.

"It takes no more than 15 minutes to get from the train, bus or car to the gate," Westin said. "Along with this smooth flow, passengers will get the feeling of being at a cosy little airport contained in a big one."

"The improved Terminal 2 will mean that passengers have a better all-round experience and help enhance the impression of the airport."

The airport operator, Swedavia, believes that the terminal's new lounge on the upper level will allow passengers to work or relax.

The refurbished terminal, which will be a home for several airlines, including British Airways, KLM, Air France and Finnair, also features new duty-free shops and restaurants.

Stockholm Arlanda Airport has four passenger terminals, of which two are international and two domestic, as well as five cargo terminals, along with 50 terminal gates and 54 remote gates.

The airport has three runways including the 3,300m-long and 45m-wide Runway One, 2,500m-long and 45m-wide Runway Two, and Runway Three, which is 2,500m long and 63m wide.

The airport is set to construct a fourth runway between 2025-2030.
