Like all big airports in Sweden (Stockholm, Malmö, etc…), Gothenburg’s airport (Landvetter) is also served by flygbussarna airport coach.
And truthfully, flygbussarna is s a very practical way to get to and from the Gothenburg’s airport with their very comfortable buses (bathroom, internet, etc…) and lots of trips throughout the day.
But it’s a bit expensive. Just one way costs 95 sek, or around 11.35 USD.
So, if you want to save money, your best option is FlixBus! With them, you can go from Gothenburg’s city center to the airport for 29 sek each way, or about 3.46 dollars. It’s just 1/3 of Flygbussarna’s price!
FlixBus is the biggest bus transportation company in Europe and has the largest interurban bus network on the continent. Altogether, they have more than 1,200 destinations in 22 countries.
Beyond city-to-city connections, sometimes FlixBus also has connections from cities to their nearest airport. They do that because they know some travelers are going from the airport to further away destinations served by FlixBus.
And because of this deal, you can travel from the center of Gothenburg to its closest airport (and vice versa), Landvetter.
I would say the only downfall of FlixBus is that they only have 3 trips in each direction per day. So, you’ll have to see if your flight’s departure or arrival time works with FlixBus’s schedule.

Where to get the Gothenburg Airport bus in the city center
The airport bus arrives and leaves right from the heart of the center, just next to the main train station.
Here is the exact address where the bus arrives and departs:
Nils Ericsonsplatsen – 411 03 – Gothenburg – Sweden
I am putting a map below.
And of course, it arrives and leaves right from the airport entrance, which is the same for arrivals and departures.
I’ve used FlixBus in a few places around Europe (Gothenburg included) and I’d definitely recommend it as one of the cheapest transportation options.
So, even if you are traveling outside of Sweden, it’s worth taking a look. Here are some of the direct bus destinations in Europe that you can go using FlixBus.
Hostel / Hotel Tip in Gothenburg!
If you’re going to Gothenburg and want to save money, I’d recommend staying at the Backpackers Göteborg. I stayed there for a while and enjoyed it very much. It has a great location with shared and private rooms for one of the best prices in town. In addition, almost every day it has some type of activity scheduled (tours, bars, movie, etc …). Very cool.
That’s it. If you have any questions, just use the comments area below and I’ll respond as soon as I can.
