Along with the Scandinavian countries of Denmark and Norway, Sweden is a country with many islands, lakes, forests, and mountains. The northern lights, fishing, hiking, and skiing are what Sweden is known for in addition to its capital city Stockholm.

The major airport in Sweden is Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN). This airport offers nonstop flights between the U.S. and Sweden as well as connecting flights from the U.S. through other European countries.

Best Programs to Use to Book Flights

The major airline alliances in Oneworld, SkyTeam, and the Star Alliance will come in handy when booking the various ways for you to fly to Sweden from the U.S.

As you’re reading through this list, it’s important to note that the award prices shown are round-trip prices. Except for ANA partner airline flights, you can book one-way flights with any of the programs on the list. Now that we have that covered, let’s jump in to how best to book flights to Sweden!

American Airlines AAdvantage

Cabin ClassOneworld Miles CostTaxes and Fees
Economy Off-Peak45,000$164+
Economy60,000$164+
Business115,000$164+

One of the things to consider when earning American Airlines AAdvantage miles is that the award program doesn’t have a ton of sweet spots. Compared to other Oneworld airline award programs, you’ll pay a premium on many routes when redeeming AAdvantage miles.

Hot Tip: Booking off-peak award flights is the way to go with the American Airlines AAdvantage program. Off-peak dates on American Airlines and partner airline flights to Europe are from January 10-March 14 and November 1-December 14.  

With the required number of AAdvantage miles in your account, you can book flights like these to Sweden:

  • New York (JFK) – Helsinki (HEL) – Stockholm (ARN) for 45,000 American Airlines miles in Finnair economy
  • Philadelphia (PHL) – Madrid (MAD) – Stockholm (ARN) for 115,000 American Airlines miles in Iberia business class

The American Airlines award booking process is as follows:

  1. Search for flights on American Airlines.
  2. Book the flight online.
  3. Pay the taxes and fees.

Earning American Airlines AAdvantage Miles

Earning AAdvantage miles should not take much effort. American Airlines has both a transferable point program partner in Marriott Bonvoy and offers several co-branded credit cards.

The transfer time from Marriott is 2 days at a ratio of 3:1. You’ll also receive a 5,000-mile bonus with every 60,000 points that you transfer. Below are the Marriott credit cards we recommend:

Recommended Marriott Cards 

Marriott Bonvoy Boundless™ Credit Card - Earn 75,000 bonus points after spending $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. Get automatic silver elite status each account anniversary year; and a free night award (valued up to 35,000 points) every year after account anniversary.
Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card - earn 75,000 bonus points when you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of account opening. A solid card for business owners who will get complimentary Marriott Bonvoy silver elite status. Annual fee is $125. For rates and fees of the Bonvoy Business Card, click here.

ANA Mileage Club

ANA Business Class

Cabin ClassStar Alliance Miles CostTaxes and Fees
Economy55,000$106+
Business88,000$106+

Japan-based ANA’s Mileage Club is a program you should check out when booking flights to Sweden. One of the most well known sweet spots with the Mileage Club program is booking Star Alliance business class flights to Europe.

The lack of flexibility when booking partner airline award flights and fuel surcharges are by far the biggest downsides to keep in mind when using ANA miles. ANA requires you to book round-trip partner flights, which limits the flexibility of your flights.

With respect to fuel surcharges, ANA passes them on to you. This means that if you book airlines like Austrian Airlines or Lufthansa with ANA miles, you’ll pay a ton in taxes and fees.

Hot Tip: A way to get around high fuel surcharges on Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa is to use Avianca or United. Both of these programs don’t impose fuel surcharges so you’ll save a lot of money in the process.  

Flights to Sweden that you can book with ANA Mileage Club miles include:

  • Newark (EWR) – Warsaw (WAW) – Stockholm (ARN) for 88,000 ANA miles in LOT Polish business class
  • Washington (IAD) – Copenhagen (CPH) – Stockholm (ARN) for 55,000 ANA miles in SAS economy

You’ll want to use the steps below to book your next award flight with ANA:

  1. Search for flights on United.
  2. Confirm the same availability on ANA.
  3. Book the flight online.
  4. Pay the taxes and fees.

Earning ANA Mileage Club Miles

ANA has partnerships with both American Express and Marriott Bonvoy, making it super easy to earn ANA Mileage Club miles. Points earned in both programs can be transferred directly to ANA. ANA offers a co-branded credit card but unfortunately, it’s not available to the U.S. market.

If you have the choice, you’ll want to earn American Express points first. The reason being that American Express point transfers take 2-3 days at a 1:1 ratio. In the case of Marriott, point transfers take 7 days at a 3:1 ratio. With Marriott transfers, you’ll want to transfer 60,000 points at a time to earn the 5,000-mile bonus. In short, these are the American Express credit cards to keep your eye on:

Recommended Amex Cards (Personal)

The Platinum Card® from American Express - There's currently a welcome bonus of 60,000 points after spending $5,000 in your first 3 months. This is our favorite card for getting into 1,200+ airport lounges worldwide (including Priority Pass) and we get about $2,700+ in value from the card every year.

Plus, get up to $200 in Uber credits annually ($15 per month and a $20 bonus in December) — and up to $200 in annual credit for airline incidental charges (e.g. baggage fees). For rates and fees of the Platinum Card, click here.
American Express® Gold Card - We love using this card as it earns 4x points at restaurants worldwide and 4x points at US supermarkets (up to $25,000; then 1x). There's no better card in our opinion if you eat out and/or shop at supermarkets regularly.

With a welcome bonus of 35,000 points after you spend $4,000 in your first 3 months and a $100 airfare credit per year, for many this is an easy addition to your wallet. For rates and fees of the Gold Card, click here.

Recommended Amex Cards (Business)

The Business Platinum Card® from American Express - Right now, there's a HUGE welcome bonus of up to 100,000 points. Earn 50,000 points after you spend $10,000 and an extra 50,000 after you spend an additional $15,000, on purchases within the first 3 months.

We get ~$5,525+ in value per year by leveraging many of the benefits & perks.

This is the best business card for lounge access as you'll get into 1,200+ airport lounges worldwide. For rates and fees of the Business Platinum, click here.
American Express® Business Gold Card - probably our favorite Amex business card because we earn 4x points across the top 2 select categories that we spend the most money in each month. The 4x points applies to the first $150,000 in combined purchases from these 2 categories each calendar year. This means you'll max out at a (whopping) 600,000 points per year. After that, you earn 1x. For rates and fees of the Business Gold Card, click here.
The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express - This is a simple card that earns you 2x points on any business purchase, up to $50,000 annually (then 1x). That makes for an easy 100,000 points per year! The card has no annual fee. For rates and fees of the Blue Business Plus, click here.

Bottom Line: ANA offers the second cheapest business class award option to Sweden right behind Asiana Airlines. 

Asiana Airlines Asiana Club

Cabin ClassStar Alliance Miles CostTaxes and Fees
Economy50,000$106+
Business80,000$106+
First100,000$1,776+

Asiana Airlines’ Asiana Club is another Star Alliance program to keep in mind when booking flights to Sweden. Asiana Airlines receives the most coverage for the ability to book business and first class Star Alliance flights to Europe at low rates.

The catch with Asiana Airlines is that you’re on the hook for the fuel surcharges. Fuel surcharges and the online booking process are what frustrate many travelers about the Asiana Club program.

Hot Tip: If you’re looking to keep your taxes and fees low, use Avianca LifeMiles or United MileagePlus. Neither one of these airlines passes on fuel surcharges

Example flights to Sweden that can be booked by redeeming Asiana Airlines miles include:

  • Chicago (ORD) – Stockholm (ARN) for 50,000 Asiana miles in SAS economy
  • Washington (IAD) – Istanbul (LIS) – Stockholm (ARN) for 80,000 Asiana miles in Turkish Airlines business class

Redeeming Asiana Airlines miles takes a bit of effort but is made easier if you use the process below:

  1. Search for Star Alliance partner flights on United.
  2. Call Asiana Airlines at 800-227-4262 between 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. PST on Monday-Friday.
  3. Book the flight over the phone.
  4. Pay the taxes and fees.

Earning Asiana Airlines Miles

Marriott Bonvoy is the only partner of the Asiana Club program, making it difficult to earn Asiana Airlines miles. Asiana Airlines does offer co-branded Bank of America credit cards that earn miles directly with your spend.

The same 5,000-mile bonus can be earned when transferring 60,000 Marriotts points at a time. Before transferring any points, keep in mind Marriott point transfers take 4 days at a 3:1 ratio.

Bottom Line: Flying business class on airlines with low taxes and fees is the way to receive the most value with Asiana Airlines miles. 

Cathay Pacific Asia Miles

British Airways Business Class
Use Asia Miles to fly British Airways Business Class. Image Credit: Alex Miller
Cabin ClassOneworld Airlines Cost Taxes and Fees
Economy54,000+$164+
Business100,000+$164+
First*150,000+$656+

*First class is only offered on the New York (JFK) – London (LHR) route

Joining American Airlines is our second Oneworld member in Cathay Pacific. One of the best ways to redeem Cathay Pacific Asia Miles is on British Airways business and first class flights between the U.S. and Europe. The reason is that you’ll pay lower taxes and fees.

The Asia Miles program is not known for having a competitive award chart and many of its partner airlines can’t be booked online.

Hot Tip: Cathay Pacific doesn’t have an award chart when you’re flying 1 Oneworld airline partner. Simply add 5,000 miles to the pricing shown in the Asia Miles Standard Award chart. 

For those of you with Asia Miles, consider booking flights like these to Sweden:

  • Miami (MIA) – Madrid (MAD) – Stockholm (ARN) for 70,000 Cathay Pacific miles in Iberia economy
  • Boston (BOS) – London (LHR) – Stockholm (ARN) for 100,000 Cathay Pacific miles in British Airways business class

You can book British Airways, Iberia, Finnair flights to Sweden using these steps:

  1. Search for partner airline flights on asiamiles.com.
  2. Book the flight online.
  3. Pay the taxes and fees.

For other airline partners that fly to Sweden (i.e. American Airlines), the process is a little different:

  1. Search for American Airlines award availability on British Airways.
  2. Call Cathay Pacific at 866-892-2598 to confirm award availability.
  3. Book the flight over the phone.
  4. Pay the taxes and fees.

Earning Cathay Pacific Asia Miles

Cathay Pacific has partnerships with American Express, Capital One, Citi, and Marriott Bonvoy, meaning it’ll be extremely easy to earn Cathay Pacific Asia Miles. Cathay Pacific also offers co-branded Synchrony Bank credit cards and your spend directly earns Asia Miles.

If you find yourself with American Express, Capital One, Citi, and/or Marriott points, keep the transfer ratios and times in mind as they are different. American Express points transfer instantly at a 1:1 ratio, Capital One Miles transfers take 5 days at a 2:1.5 ratio, Citi point transfers take 24 hours at a 1:1 ratio, and Marriott point transfers take 5 days at a 3:1 ratio. If you’re looking to earn Capital One Miles, we recommend checking out the cards below:

Recommended Capital One Cards (Personal)

Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card - This card is packed with a lot more benefits and perks. Earn a 50,000 mile sign up bonus (worth $500 toward travel) once you spend $3,000 on purchases within 3 months from account opening. We recommend this as a no-brainer card if you even semi regularly stay at hotels.
Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card - This is an excellent card for those looking to earn 1.25x miles per $1 on every purchase. With a 20,000 mile sign up bonus (worth $200 toward travel) after spending $1,000 within the first 3 months and no annual fee, it's a strong choice.

Bottom Line: The Asia Miles program works best if you are flying more than 7,501 miles. This is where the award chart ends, so any distance beyond this will not require additional miles. 

Iberia Plus

Cabin ClassIberia Miles CostTaxes and Fees
Economy Off-Peak42,500$164+
Business Off-Peak85,000$164+

Iberia is the third Oneworld airline partner to make this list. For U.S. travelers, there are 2 things that you may be familiar with about the Iberia Plus program — the ability to book domestic American Airlines flights and the ability to redeem Iberia Avios (miles) for Iberia flights during off-peak dates between the U.S. and Europe.

Before you start earning Iberia Avios or transferring points to Iberia, you’ll want to keep in mind that some partners, like American Airlines, require you to book round-trip flights. Many travelers see this as a drawback when using the Iberia Plus program.

Hot Tip: If you’re looking for an even cheaper flight option to Europe, consider redeeming Aer Lingus Avios. You’ll need to book an additional flight to Sweden, but you can fly to Europe in economy at extremely low prices using Aer Lingus Avios. 

Award flights to Sweden that can be booked using Iberia Avios include:

  • Boston (ORD) – Madrid (MAD) – Stockholm (ARN) for 85,000 Iberia Avios in Iberia business class off-peak
  • New York (JFK) – Madrid (MAD) – Stockholm (ARN) for 42,500 Iberia Avios in Iberia economy off-peak

Booking award flights to Sweden redeeming Iberia Avios is pretty simple. Use the process below to book:

  1. Search for Iberia flights on Iberia.
  2. Book Iberia flights online.
  3. Pay the taxes and fees.

Earning Iberia Avios

Earning Iberia Avios won’t be too much of a challenge. Iberia has partnerships with American Express, Chase, and Marriott Bonvoy. Iberia also offers a co-branded Chase credit card that earns Iberia Avios.

The transfer times and ratios are different among the transferable point programs. American Express, Chase and Marriott points transfer within 24 hours to Iberia. American Express and Chase have 1:1 transfer ratios while Marriott has a 3:1 transfer ratio. With Marriott transfers, try to transfer 60,000 Marriott points at a time to earn the 5,000-mile bonus. We love earning Chase points and recommend checking out these cards to earn your fair share:

Recommended Chase Cards (Personal)

Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card - This is our favorite beginners travel rewards card which has a 60,000 point bonus (highest ever) after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.

This sign up bonus is worth $750 in travel purchases (flights, hotels, car rentals etc) when you redeem your points through Chase's travel portal, which works like Expedia. The bonus alone could get you multiple round-trip flights or hotel stays.
Chase Sapphire Reserve® - Consider this premium card if you want to get into a lot of airport lounges. The current sign up bonus is 50,000 points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. You'll also get a $300 travel credit per year which wipes away a big chunk of the $450 annual fee.
Chase Freedom Unlimited® - A simple, no annual fee card that earns you a $150 bonus after you spend $500 in your first 3 months. Easy earning at 1.5% on all purchases. Just know that you won't get any travel benefits or the ability to earn bonus points with this card.

Recommended Chase Cards (Business)

Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card - This is our #1 recommended business card and comes with a whopping 80,000 sign up bonus after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months after account opening. This bonus is worth $1,000 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards for travel purchases (flights, hotels etc). Also, if you pay for your cell phone bill with this card, you can get up to $600 in cell phone insurance coverage per year.
Ink Business Cash℠ Credit Card - earn $500 bonus cash back after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months after account opening. In addition, get up to 5% cash back on a range of business expenses such as office supply stores, internet, cable, and phone services. This is one of the best no annual fee business cards.

Bottom Line: The off-peak award calendar is the way to go with Iberia. You can save yourself a ton of Avios by simply traveling during these off-peak dates. 

Japan Airlines Mileage Bank

Cabin Class Oneworld Miles Cost Taxes and Fees
Economy50,000+$89+
Business85,000+$89+
First*100,000+$328+

*American Airlines first class is only offered on the New York (JFK) – London (LHR) route

Japan Airlines has an interesting program that doesn’t get much media coverage and is known for is offering low rates on Oneworld partner airline flights.

While Japan Airlines has competitive award prices, its miles can be tough to earn — one of the drawbacks of this program that you should keep in mind.

Hot Tip: Japan Airlines has a partnership with SkyTeam’s Air France outside of its partnership with the Oneworld alliance. This works in your favor as you can use Japan Airlines miles to book an Air France award flight.

If you have Japan Airlines miles, here are a couple of flights to Sweden that you can book:

  • New York (JFK) – Helsinki (HEL) – Stockholm (ARN) for 85,000 Japan Airlines miles in Finnair business class
  • Boston (BOS) – Paris (CDG) – Stockholm (ARN) for 85,000 Japan Airlines miles in Air France business class

Using the steps below will help you book a flight to Sweden with Japan Airlines miles:

  1. Search for Oneworld flights on British Airways.
  2. Search for saver level Air France flights on Delta.
  3. Confirm the same availability on Japan Airlines.
  4. Book the flight online.
  5. Pay the taxes and fees.

Earning Japan Airlines Miles

Japan Airlines only partners with Marriott Bonvoy so it may be challenging to earn Japan Airlines miles. In addition to earning points via Marriott, Japan Airlines offers a co-branded First National Bank of Omaha credit card. Due to the low welcome offer and earn rates, we’d recommend passing on it for now.

For those of you looking to transfer Marriott points, the transfer time takes 2 days at a 3:1 ratio. Keep in mind that you’ll receive a 5,000-mile bonus with every 60,000 miles that you transfer to Japan Airlines.

Bottom Line: For flights to Sweden, flights that travel the shortest distance require the fewest number of Japan Airlines miles. 

Korean Air SKYPASS

Use Korean Air miles to book Air France business class to Sweden. Image Credit: Airliners.net
Cabin ClassStar Alliance Miles CostTaxes and Fees
Economy50,000$613+
Business80,000$613+

South Korea-based Korean Air is the lone Skyteam partner to make this list. For U.S. travelers, the SKYPASS program is known for competitive business class award flights to Europe and competitive award flights on Air France between Los Angeles and Tahiti.

Fuel surcharges and its online booking process are 2 downsides that you should be aware of when redeeming Korean Air miles. Particularly on this route, expect to pay several hundred dollars in fees.

Hot Tip: If you’re looking to fly Skyteam airline partners to Stockholm, we also recommend checking the award prices on Air France, Delta, and KLM. 

You can redeem Korean Air miles on flights like these to Sweden:

  • Atlanta (ATL) – Paris (CDG) – Stockholm (ARN) for 80,000 Korean Air miles in Delta, Air France business class
  • New York (JFK) – Amsterdam (AMS) – Stockholm (ARN) for 50,000 Korean Air miles in Delta, KLM economy

Award flights to Stockholm can be booked much easier by following these steps:

  1. Search for SkyTeam flights on Air France, Delta, or KLM.
  2. Confirm the same availability on Korean Air or call Korean Air at 800-438-5000.
  3. Book the flight online or over the phone.
  4. Pay the taxes and fees.

Earning Korean Air SKYPASS Miles

Marriott Bonvoy is the only transferable point program that partners with Korean Air and for this reason, you may have a tough time earning Korean Air SKYPASS miles. Another way that you can earn Korean Air miles is by putting your spend on its co-branded U.S. Bank-issued credit card.

For those of you holding Marriott points, the transfer time to Marriott takes 48 hours at a 3:1 ratio. If you have at least 60,000 Marriott points, remember that you’ll receive a 5,000-mile bonus with every 60,000 points that you transfer.

Bottom Line: Using Korean Air miles to fly SkyTeam business class can open up incredible value. The main thing to factor in with these flights is the fuel surcharges.

Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer

Cabin ClassStar Alliance Miles CostTaxes and Fees
Economy55,000$106+
Business144,000$106+

Booking Singapore Airlines premium cabin flights and booking discounted flights during its Spontaneous Escapes are 2 things the KrisFlyer program is known for. What you may not have considered is using KrisFlyer miles to book Star Alliance flights to Sweden.

Star Alliance business class award pricing is a hard pass for us. With Singapore Airlines’ latest award chart devaluation, many routes became uncompetitive.

Hot Tip: If you don’t mind booking an additional flight to Stockholm, you can fly Singapore Airlines between the U.S. and Europe. The 2 routes are New York (JFK) – Frankfurt (FRA) and Houston (IAH) – Manchester (MAN). 

Star Alliance flights to Sweden that you can book with KrisFlyer miles include:

  • Houston (IAH) – Chicago (ORD) – Stockholm (ARN) for 55,000 KrisFlyer miles in United, SAS economy
  • San Francisco (SFO) – Istanbul (IST) – Stockholm (ARN) for 55,000 KrisFlyer in Turkish Airlines economy

Singapore Airlines has a straightforward award booking process that looks like this:

  1. Search for Star Alliance flights on United.
  2. Confirm the same availability on Singapore Airlines.
  3. Book the flight online.
  4. Pay the taxes and fees.

Earning Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Miles

American Express, Chase, Citi, and Marriott Bonvoy all partner with Singapore Airlines. This means that it’ll be easy to earn Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles. Unfortunately, Singapore Airlines doesn’t offer a co-branded credit card for the U.S. market, so transferable points will be the main way to earn miles without flying.

Transfer times across all of Singapore Airlines partners are within 48 hours. Except for Marriott, all transfer ratios are 1:1. When transferring Marriott points, the transfer ratio is 3:1. Also, keep in mind that you’ll receive a 5,000-mile bonus when transferring 60,000 Marriott points at a time to Singapore Airlines. If you’re looking to earn Citi ThankYou points, here are the Citi cards we recommend:

Recommended Citi Cards

Bottom Line: Booking Star Alliance economy flights to Europe is what we recommend. If business class is your jam, consider using ANA, Asiana, or Aeroplan to unlock more competitive award pricing. 

United Airlines MileagePlus

First*220,000$106+

*First class only offered on select Lufthansa flights into Frankfurt (FRA) and Munich (MUC)

The last airline on this list is one that U.S. travelers likely have used in the past. United Airlines is known for its ability to book award flights without fuel surcharges, saving you a ton of cash when you’re flying Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa.

While you will not pay fuel surcharges with United, one of the downsides to redeeming MileagePlus miles to book award flights is that you will pay more in miles.

Hot Tip: Consider using United miles when you want to book partner airline flights that have high fuel surcharges. 

With many Star Alliance airline partners based in Europe, you have tons of award flight options to Sweden like these:

  • Chicago (ORD) – Vienna (VIE) – Stockholm (ARN) for 140,000 United miles in Austrian Airlines business class
  • Newark (EWR) – Munich (MUC) – Stockholm (ARN) for 140,000 United in Lufthansa business class

United makes it easy to book award flights. You can also follow this process:

  1. Search for flights on United.
  2. Book the flight on United.
  3. Pay the taxes and fees.

Earning United Airlines Mileage Club Miles

United Airlines has 2 transferable point program partnerships — Chase Ultimate Rewards and Marriott Bonvoy. United also offers several co-branded credit cards. The spend that you put on these cards directly earns Mileage Club miles.

For those looking to transfer Chase points, the points transfer instantly at a 1:1 ratio. In the case of Marriott, you have 2 transfer bonuses — Marriott points transfer within 2 days 3:1.1 (10% bonus) ratio and with every 60,000 Marriott points that you transfer, you’ll receive a 5,000-mile bonus.

Bottom Line: United doesn’t offer the lowest award prices to Sweden. However, United miles shield you from high fuel surcharges that you’ll typically see when booking Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa. 

Final Thoughts

You have 9 airline programs to choose from when booking your next trip to Sweden. With an array of economy, business, and first class options, the only thing holding you back is deciding what award flight makes the most sense for you.

When booking award flights to Sweden, we recommend earning transferable points. These types of points allow you to book flights in any of the programs on this list. You’ll have the most flexibility when you’re ready to book your next European vacation to this beautiful Scandinavian country.

About Michael McHugh

Born and raised in Mobile, Alabama, Michael took his first international trip in 2013 with friends to the Bahamas. Although he didn't travel much in his younger years, on that trip, he caught the travel bug and has been hooked ever since. Michael first caught wind of the points and miles game in 2014 while at a bar in Washington, DC where the conversation amongst friends was quickly derailed because of an alert on a friend's phone about a mistake fare.  That's where the love affair with points and miles began.
