AMS To Hultsfred (Sweden) - How Do I Get There?

Mon Jan 16, 2006 11:13 am

Hello everybody,
I'm planning to go to Hultsfred in June, because a friend is staying there and there is a festival.
But the problem is: how do I get there from Amsterdam? My friend went there by plane (Transavia) to Copenhagen and took a train further. She told me that it was a long and exhausting trip, so I definitely want to take a different/another option.
I've searched all kinds of possibilities, but the only one I've found is to take a plane to Stockholm with SAS, and from Stockholm To Hultsfred with Swedline (to be honest, I've never heard of that airline  Wink )
Are there any other solutions?
The outward flight is preferably around June 9th and the return flight on june 16th.
This was my option:
June 9th:
10:30 AMS - 12:30 ARN SK0556
18:10 ARN - 19:30 HLF SM537

June 16th:
06:25 HLF - 07:50 ARN SM530
17:30 ARN - 19:30 AMS SK0557 (quite a lot of hours to discover Stockholm  Wink )

Transavia serves a daily flight from Amsterdam to Copenhagen and it's quite cheap, perhaps there are flights from CPH to HLF. Unfortunately I haven't found them...

So my question is: does anyone know about more options going to Hultsfred (which airlines serves Hultsfred, perhaps the train isn't so bad, flights from other airports etc. etc.)?
It will help me a lot and thank you for your time
Greetings!

Ardian,
Swedline Express is the only airline serving Hultsfred with a twice daily service on weekdays from Stockholm Arlanda via Oskarshamn using Saab 340s. The closest airports distance wise from Hultsfred with services to Copenhagen are Linköping and Norrköping. Stockholm Skavsta is also within 150 kilometres from Hultsfred but Transavia has unfortunately stopped that route.

according to http://www.flygtorget.se/flygplatser/flygplatserinfo_sv.asp?ID=65 Swedline appears to be the only airline serving HLF.
Nearby Oskarsham (OSK) is also served by SM only from ARN.

Driving:
On the road, it´s equally about 350 km from CPH and ARN to HLF (but add either "ferry" or "Bridge plus longer distance" from CPH).

An alternative might be flying KL or SH (Fly me) AMS-GOT and renting a car (but check rental car agencies on minimum age in Sweden). Driving distance from GOT to HLF is around 270 km.

Yes guys!
Thanks for the replies  Smile
Problem is that I don't have my drivers license (yet: I'm still working on it  Wink), right now I think the best and fastest option is to fly with Swedline Express.
