“For Europe’s airports, the removal of internal air border controls between the 26 Schengen States has played an essential role in the availability of efficient and affordable air services for European citizens,” the airport association states.
“It has allowed intra-European air transport to become a commodity, as evidenced by the continued growth of air traffic. While just over 600 million passengers used Europe’s airports in 1990, an estimated 1,95 billion did so last year—with over 60% (1,2 billion) of them using one of the 443 airports located within the Schengen area.”

Sweden’s new photo ID document requirements for travellers trying to cross the border between Denmark and Sweden go into effect as of midnight tonight, marking a key turning point in Europe’s Schengen Zone agreements.

Starting Monday, Sweden will require all travellers wishing to cross its borders to present a valid passport or similar national photo ID. Minors under the age of 18, accompanied by an adult with a valid ID will not be subject to the checks.
