Malmo Spotting Location

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.

Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia, har försökt ringa deras bagagehantering (fått nummret av växeln på sturup) på Avastor 0406131190 för att ställa en enda fråga, har blivit lovad från Gran Canarias flygplats att de skulle skicka tillbaka en upphittad telefon med Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia, då de svarade i min telefon när jag ringde den bortglömda telefonen. Så min fråga är vad är det för mening med en telefon som bara säger uppge ert telefonnummer så ringer vi upp, vilket de inte gör. Då jag endast ville ha ett svar JA eller NEJ om det kommit en gammal NOKIA telefon från GC flygplats med Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia som de lovade att skicka den i retur till Malmö efter att fått alla uppgifter. Är där verkligen ingen enda på hela Sturup som kan åtaga sig att ringa till detta nummer o ställa denna enkla fråga?? 🙁 🙁
