Orbx’s Stockholm-Bromma and Malmo Airports reviewed

A tale of two airports

Today is very much a tale of two cities. Sweden is an oft-forgotten part of the flight sim world, despite having some fantastic airports and locations to visit. Forget Arlanda and let's look at two airports that offer an interesting location or a challenging approach. Both airports are very different. One is very much a city dweller, nestled in the heart of downtown. The other is very much a country lover, with the beauty of a gorgeous coastline on the shores of the Øresund straight. Let’s check out Malmö and Stockholm Bromma.

Malmö, the city by the sea

Malmö is the third-largest city in Sweden and is located in the far southwest, just across the water from Copenhagen. The airport, Malmö-Sturup is some 17 miles to the east. First opening in 1972, the airport lives in the shadow of the much larger Copenhagen-Kastrup. Nonetheless, over 50 years the airport has grown and today it sees around two million passengers, making the airport Sweden's fourth busiest. Malmö-Sturup is mostly home these days to various domestic operators alongside low-cost carriers including Wizz Air.
