Cheap air travel from Stockholm

Hi,
I am in Stockholm for 2 months, and would like to take advantage of the weekends by travelling to other cities in Europe. Is there a web site that has last minute bargain trips? I cannot seem to find any for Stockholm. Or should I find a trael agent to call every week for the specials of the week?
Please help!

I think you know that you can book sleepers, board at Stockholm on Friday about 2230, leave 2300, change at Malmo 0616 to 0704, and reach Copenhagen on Saturday at 0732. Northbound Copenhagen on Sunday at 2220, Malmo 2255 to 2310, Stockholm 0610.

Some of these notes are eight months old, but some will help.

Snowflake (www.flysnowflake.com, starting May 2003) will fly from Stockholm and Copenhagen to Sarajevo, Pristina, Budapest, Prague and Istanbul as well as Mediterranean destinations.

Let me expand a bit on what Ben said. If I'm interpreting the sites I just checked correctly, then Stockholm has three airports. I don't know their relative distances from the city, however. Virgin Express flys from Bromma to Brussels. Ryanair uses both Vasteras and Skavsta. You can fly from Vasteras to London (Stansted). You can fly from Skavsta to London (Stansted), Tampere (Finland), Hamburg, Frankfurt, Paris (Beauvais), Oslo (Torp), and Glasgow.

Just checked a little further and discovered a third airport in Stockholm (Arlanda). Snowflake will use Arlanda. I believe that is also the one used by the national carriers.

My math failed me. Arlanda would make it *4* (not 3) airports in the Stockholm area.

Hi

Bromma is very central, used mainly for internal flights. Taxi to central Stockholm cheap and quick.

Arlanda is North and has International / Domestic terminals. It is the main airport for Stockholm. From memory it is about 1 hr by car. Bus / train shuttles available from memory.

Ryanair use an airport near Nykoping. Nykoping is around 1hr 45m from Stockholm. I guess this is Skavsta.

Vasteras is NW, inland, and quite a bit further away.
