Now Boarding: Preclearance at Arlanda

  • Hard Rock Cafe 75 Sveavägen Stockholm, Stockholms län, 113 50 Sweden (map)

The Benefits of Stockholm as the Aviation Hub of Scandinavia

On May 29, 2015, Stockholm Arlanda Airport was selected by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (US CBP) as one of ten additional airports in the world with the potential to introduce U.S. preclearance.

For passengers taking a direct flight from Arlanda to the U.S., preclearance means that U.S. border controls for passengers will be conducted before boarding a plane, rather than waiting in line to clear customs after arriving in the U.S.

For 98% of travellers, screening by preclearance only takes between 30 seconds and two minutes – a considerable savings in time compared to the current procedure.

AmCham Sweden invites you to hear from Fredrik Jaresved, CEO for Airport City Stockholm, on the progress of the preclearance approval process currently underway between Sweden and the U.S. – and how preclearance at Arlanda can provide substantial benefits for individual passengers and businesses, entire industries, as well as the economy of the Stockholm region and Sweden as a whole.

Fredrik Jaresved

During his time at Airport City Stockholm and Swedavia, which operates 32 municipal and private airports in Sweden, Fredrik has been integral in efforts to position Arlanda as the best location in Scandinavia for introducing U.S. preclearance.

Currently, Fredrik also serves as the Head of External Collaboration, and is a member of the Executive Body at Stockholm Arlanda Airport, of which he is the Deputy Airport Director. Fredrik previously served as Head of Safety Management and Sustainable Development at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.

After majoring in Aerodynamics at The Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Fredrik received a Master of Science (M.Sc.) Degree in Aeronautical Engineering.
