Stockholm-Skavsta Airport (Swedish: Stockholm-Skavsta flygplats), or Nyköping Airport (IATA: NYO, ICAO: ESKN) is an international airport near Nyköping, Sweden, approximately 100 kilometres (62 mi) southwest of Stockholm. It is served by low-cost airlines and cargo operators. Stockholm-Skavsta Airport is Stockholm's second largest airport, and the third largest in Sweden, with an ability to handle 2.5 million passengers annually.
An airbase during the Second World War, the airport was used as a military airport until 1980, when it was taken out of service. In 1984, the city council of Nyköping, where the airport is located, decided to take over its control and resume its activities. Therefore, in 1998, the council put 90% of the capital of the airport up for sale with the objective of strengthening its commercial management and enabling investments for its expansion. They acquired this parcel of shares and began the transformation of Skavsta, which has become the second airport of Stockholm and the favoured option for inhabitants who live in the area south of the Swedish capital.
The airport has a capacity of 2.5 million passengers per annum and is designed for expansion in the future.
