Malmö Airport – a hub in a growing region
Skåne is the most densely populated part of Sweden. It is a part of the Öresund region, which together with Copenhagen, constitutes the largest growth area in Scandinavia. Malmö Airport is an important part of the infrastructure of the Öresund region.
The Öresund region is an attractive region for international companies. Reasons behind this are the many universities and the fact that the region is leading within medicine, biotechnology (Medicon Valley), IT and food products.
Malmö Airport is located in the heart of this region – a large workplace employing a total of some 1,200 people spread between fifty companies.
The well-developed infrastructure makes it easy to reach Malmö Airport from both Sweden and Denmark, regardless of whether you drive a car or use public transport. The motorway to Malmö Airport connects Sweden with Denmark via the Öresund bridge.
There are also plans to build a railway between the airport and Copenhagen Airport.
