There are two main options to fly to Malmö. First one is Copenhagen Airport (Kastrup Airport), which is very well connected with different airlines in- and outside of Europe, from there the delegates can take a train, which runs straight from the Airport and takes around 15 minutes (a little note here: as the immigration laws have emerged throughout the last months it is necessary to have a national ID on you, otherwise the security personnel and/or police will not let you enter into Sweden)

Second option is Malmö Airport - which has less inbound flights than Copenhagen, but serves different flight companies. MUNmö 2017 has not established a cooperation with any airlines. For more information, Getting to Malmö - MUNmö

Using the airplane might not always be the cheapest or most environmentally friendly option to get to Malmö. As the Executive Board is highly concerned about Mother Earth we appeal to your consciousness to consider the most sustainable option for your journey. On www.swebus.se, www.eurobuslines.com and other sides you can find bus connections. Another possibility would be to use sides such as www.blablacar.com or trains.
