After my flight from Geneva, I had a connection to a small Swedish town in the Småland region, Växjö. I had one hour layover in Amsterdam.
The flight was operated by KLM cityhopper with an Embraer 175 of 88 passengers. KLM operates during the winter season 5 daily flights to Växjö and 7 flights during summer season. Since KLM flew to Växjö, it allowed the city to be connected to a large number of destinations. Indeed, the small regional airport was not connected to a major Hub.
You can fly during the whole year from Växjö to Stockholm Bromma, Gdansk and Amsterdam.
The second phase of my journey started downstairs where I checked my gate.
Then I headed to the B section and my gate. Of course it was the farest gate of the B section. Quite a long walk. I was happy to reached it.
I really appreacite the view that you have in Amsterdam. This airport is a friendly spotter airport with a nice view on some of the runways.
Our Embraer 175 of the day.
Due to the sun - which was far from being aggressive - the airport decided to put the stores in order to reduce the sunlight in the terminal. I obvisouly prefer when the store are up… you can barely see something through the stores… not really pleasant though.
The boarding started with 5 minutes delays.
First time I was boarding at this gate and I can defenitly say that is not the best one. You have to go down to the tarmac with a steep descent and then climb the stairs to the aircraft. Fortunately nobody needed assistance.

And our Embraer.
Unfortunetaly I was not on a window seat this time… the plane was full, thus it was impossible to change seat.
Push back and rolling to the runway - on-time as usual with KLM.
The leg-room and the seat was correct as my preview reports on KLM. Correct for a 1h25 minutes flight.
Sunny flight with a foggy layer underneath.
The in-flight entertainment was as usual, the magasine of the airline. You can find picture of it in my preview report from Geneva to Amsterdam.
Hereafter, the flight-attendants started their service. We had two small turkey sandwiches - very good - and a beverage, I took a tea.
After 50 minutes of flight, we started our descent to Växjö. The approach was a mix between fog and sun. It was not possible to real distinct the ground until a certain altitude.
Approaching Växjö and its frozen lakes.
Touch-down. Welcome to Sweden.
Växjö airport during deboarding. Another airline on the tarmas. Braathens Airlines, the Swedish regional airline based in Stockholm Bromma.
You have to walk to the terminal, like 80 meters maximum.
Baggage claim area.
Then headed toward the exist. From the airplane to the exist of the airport you have to count 3 minutes if you do not have luggages.
Finally, I went to the bus stop in order to join Växjö downtown and the other bus' connections. Count around 20 minutes to get in town. The airport is served by the line 4. A bus is coming every 20 minutes during working days. Very practical.
Amsterdam - AMS
Växjö - VXO
The flight was very good. No complain concerning KLM cityhopper. We arrived in Växjö with 10 minutes in advance. The snack was very good, the flight-attendant pleasant as well.
Växjö airport is a very small regional airport with 200 000 pax in 2018. However, it is well connected to the city thanks to the bus system. In less than 10 minutes you are outside the airport, which is very confortable.
Thanks for reading my report.
