I am looking to purchase a youth one-way ticket on SK from ARN to LHR via OSL. When I looked at the requirements, it says that I must possess an ID card to show that I'm aged between 12 and 25, but it does not state what constitutes an ID card. Would my passport suffice, or do they mean something different?

Zweed, no, the UK is not part of Schengen.
ACAfan, Schengen is a lot of European countries that went together and basically decided that when travelling between countries that are members of Schengen, you don't need a passport, just like travelling between different US states. It is, however, advisable to bring your passport, as it is the most widely recognized ID.

Swedish drivers licenses (the new ones), dutch National ID cards and mayn others cards are valid for travelling in between the Schengen countries.
The main thing is, if it shows your nationality on the ID-card. Then you can use it.

As Zweed hints at, Driver's Licences and ID cards are being harmonized between EU countried. If it has an EU flag on it, it's probably enough. Call the airline and ask, or bring your passport to be 100% certain.
ACAfan, KaiGwyer told you what The Schengen Treaty entails. the "unsexy" name is after the town where it was signed.
