Taxis are parked directly outside all terminals, and most companies offer a fixed price option. Nearly three quarters of all taxis at the airport are environmentally-friendly “eco-taxis.” You’ll find them lined up in front of regular taxis, or you can ask the taxi stand officer for an eco-taxi.
The airport’s car rental area, reached by a free transfer bus, houses Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz and Sixt car rental offices.

The tempting array of food options include the new Scandinavian restaurant Andersson Food & Akvavit offering mini-dishes created by the award-winning Swedish chef Leif Mannerström.
