Västerås is located about 100 km west from Stockholm. The nearest international airport is Arlanda which also is the port to Stockholm. The local airport is used for domestic traffic, but does also have a connection to Copenhagen. So the most convenient way to travel would be to take the flight from Copenhagen to Västerås. Transportation from Arlanda to Västeras takes approx. 1 hour by bus/taxi. An alternative way of transportation is to take a bus to Stockholm and then train or bus from Stockholms Central to Västerås.
