real advice by real locals
Bromma is the fifth largest airport in Sweden. It serves mainly domestic routes, and a few international.
Bromma Airport is 7.4 km west/northwest of Stockholm and is thus much closer to the city than Arlanda (or Skavsta).
Ordered from the cheapest to the most expensive.
Bromma Airport close to the city and easily reachable with public transport (SL). What ticket to buy depends on how much you intend to travel and for how long:
From Bromma Airport: Take bus 152 towards Älvsjö station from outside the airport. Get off at Sundbybergs torg (at Humblegatan) and take the commuter train ("pendeltåg") to Stockholm central station. Or: Take bus 110 towards Alvik from outside the airport and get off at Alvik. From Alvik you can take the subway (green line) to the city, or Nockebybanan or Tvärbanan. (Bus 110 runs less frequently than 152, and if you're going to the central station it also takes a bit longer.)
From Stockholm City: Go to Stockholm central station (next to T-Centralen) and take the commuter train ("pendeltåg") to towards Bålsta or Kungsängen. Get off at Sundbyberg. Take bus 152 towards Bromma flygplats (flygplats = airport). Or: Take the green subway line towards Alvik, Åkeshov or Hässelby strand. Get off at Alvik and take bus 110 to Bromma flygplats.
Use SL's travel planner to see exact times!
Not really worth it considering how cheap and easy it is with public transport, but it's slightly faster and a bit more convenient taking one of Flygbussarna's airport buses to/from Bromma Airport. The journey takes 20 minutes.
From Bromma: Buy your ticket onboard the bus (credit card only) or online. The buses depart from right outside the airport.
From Stockholm: Buy your ticket from the ticket stand in the City Terminal (cash, credit card), or onboard the bus (credit card only). The buses depart from the City Terminal ("Cityterminalen"), which is located next to Stockholm Central Station, close to T-Centralen. Follow the signs at the central station.
Buying your ticket online is recommended as it's generally slightly cheaper. Pay with credit card, print the ticket and show it when boarding the bus.
There are some independent taxi drivers who will try to rip you off given the chance, so avoid them by choosing a well-known company (e.g. Taxi Stockholm, Taxi 020, Taxi Kurir; look out for imitators, like "Taxi i Stockholm").
The Swedish Road Administration has a nice PDF about what to think about: Taking a taxi − advice and helpful hints for your taxi journey.
At Bromma, taxis depart from outside the terminal.
