Gothenburg Landvetter Airport is Sweden’s second largest airport and an important hub for southwestern Sweden. The airport consists of an older terminal from 1977 that has been extended several times. Nordic was initially engaged by Swedavia in 2015 to develop a plan to increase the airport’s capacity from 6 to 10 million passengers per year.

Expansion of capacity

The ongoing master plan for Landvetter reflects the entire terminal complex, including the reconfiguration of the airside and landside areas, following the initial studies from the development program. The master plan study will eventually extend to 2070 with the goal to increase capacity up to 18 million passengers per year. The plan proposes a phased development, focusing on the imminent requirement to increase capacity to 10 and then 15 million passengers per year by 2040.

An international example for sustainability

The first phases are critical, as they lay the foundation for a sustainable development of the airport; re-using existing buildings and then gradually extending based on need, as well as supporting new technology, such as the electrification of aircrafts.

The aspiration for the new Landvetter master plan is that it will set an international example for sustainability and offer a seamless and inspiring travel experience, becoming an engine for growth in Sweden.
