Traveling (planes)

• Option 1. Plane to Göteborg (Landvetter). This is the nearest Swedish international airport. From the airport you need to take a bus (Flygbussarna: Airport coaches) to Göteborg bus and train station (Nils Ericson Terminalen, last stop). Then a train to Skövde. There are buses every 15 minutes and trip (Airport-Göteborg-Landvetter to Göteborg central station) takes 30 minutes. The train from Göteborg central station to Skövde takes between 1 hour and 1:30 hours. There are trains every hour (approx.). Prices depend on the train, and change according to demand. Regional trains can be found for about 200 SEK.
• Option 2. Plane to Stockholm (Arlanda). This is not so near, but it may be convenient. From the airport you need to take either the Arlanda express (train) or a bus (Flygbussarna: Airport coaches) to Stockholm bus and train station. Then a train to Skövde. The train is faster and the bus is cheaper. If you look for a train in you can get tickets from Arlanda to Skövde. The train from Stockholm central station to Skövde takes between 2:00 hours and 3:30, according to speed. Prices depend on the train, and change according to demand.
• Option 3. Plane to Copenhagen Airport. This is not so near, but also not so far and may also be convenient. Note that Copenhaguen is just in front of Malmö (Sweden). Trains connect these two cities, as well as other cities in Sweden, crossing the Öresund bridge. This combination may be competitive with respect to time and to flight combinations to the other two.
