Visby airport. Direct connections with Gotland Island. How to get

Visby airport

Visby International Airport is the reference point for connections with Gotland, the large Swedish island in the Baltic Sea.

It is located about 4 km north of the beautiful Visby, the main town on the island.

Like the city, Visby Airport also comes alive in the summer, concentrating, precisely in this period, the largest volume of passenger traffic, for a total of about 500,000 per year (before the Pandemic!).

Visby Airport has only one small Terminal where there is a duty-free service. The wifi line is available FREE for the first three hours, for all airport guests. Just connect, with your device, to the “Airport-Guest” network.

By renting a car, bus or taxi you can easily move around the island.

Better to book directly online well in advance.
