There is a viewing area provided at Malmo Airport for spotting. It is located between the terminal and the parking area, to the left if you leave the main entrance to the terminal. From this spotting location you can see the south end of the passenger apron and take decent photographs of aircraft. It is free to use this spotting area.
Alternatively, you can get views of aircraft by following the fence line towards the end of the runway, as long as you don’t get too close and cause alarm for security.
A former SAS Caravelle can also be seen at Malmo. Turn left outside the main terminal entrance and walk past a race track on your right. The Caravelle will eventually appear.
It is possible to spot through the windows inside the terminal once in the departures area.
