Two questions I have about gate usage at Stockholm Arlanda:

1. Are all gates at Terminal 5 usable for both Schengen and Non-Schengen flights? Or is Pier F used exclusively for Non-Schengen, and Piers A and B are for Schengen? Is there a pattern of certain airlines always using the same gates?

2. Which gates at Terminal 5 are used by heavies?

Thanks

The gates at the former A pier, 1-10, are only used for Schengen. The gates at the F pier can be used for both.

The situation at the B pier is a bit more complex. Gates 11 and 12 can only be used for Schengen. Gates 13 and 14 can be used for external or Schengen arrivals, but only Schengen departures. Gates 15 and 16 can in theory be used for both, but I've never seen an external departure from those gates. Gates 17 and 18 are for both. Gates 19 and 20 are only for external flights.

There is a pattern for most scheduled airlines, but no pattern for most charter airlines, but there's no 100 percent guarantee. Tell me which airlines you're interested in, and I can tell you where they usually dock.

Gate 15 and 16 on the B pier were used for non-Schengen departures a few years ago, but not any more. The passport control on pier B only serves gates 17 18 19 and 20 for departures.
On pier A gates 7 8 9 and 10 were used for non-Schengen, but since pier F opened this passport control was withdrawn.
All pier F gates are dual purpose. The first floor is Schengen, and the second floor is non-Schengen. The gates have two numbers i.e. gate F32 is Schengen on the first floor and called gate F62 on the second floor for non-Schengen.
All SAS non-Schengen flights depart from the F pier. Thai always uses gate 17. Other operators move around. During the mornings there is a shortage of non-Schengen gates.
Terminal 2 has three non-Schengen gates 66 67 and 68. Gate 66 is dual purpose, i.e. it can be Schengen or non-Schengen. The non-Schengen part is used by BA and for Norwegian charters.
Terminals 3 and 4 are purely domestic Swedish flights.
Heavy (B744) gates are 17 and 18 on the B pier, 7 and 8 on the A pier and on the F pier gates 28 32 36 and 39. On T2 gates 63 and 66 are B767 size only. B744 must park off pier on gate 69. The F pier has flexible gates. i.e. you can have a B744 on F28 if F30 is empty, or you can have two A320s on F28 and F30.

Actually, it's the third floor which is Schengen and the fourth floor is non-Schengen.

There are exceptions. Once in a while, though not often, you can see TG on gate 18.

There are some operators which usually dock at a certain gate. Gate 18 is the usual gate for Iran Air and Continental, gate 19 is usually used by Aeroflot, Turkish and Ethiopian departures. KL, AF and OK usually move around between 11-16. Delta, Corsair and Malaysia usually dock at F36. Though there are exceptions to all these airlines.

gates 63 and 66 are B767 size only

What do you do with the BA 777?

TW and PA used to use 17 and 18 when they flew there about 20 years ago.
