Fast track for CE/gold at T5 ARN?

We had a thread that mentioned lounges at ARN T5 during covid, but as I remember it no one tried fast track for security?

I haven't been bothered myself since I have been fortunate to travel when it has been quiet, and have used the first entrance coming from the station, been through in minutes. However I will be arriving at the airport in the morning on Thursday, guessing it will be busy with flights within the region, and also Swedavia stating that they are short staffed.

...I am not sure why I not just ask without the novel... Is there security fast track at T5 ARN for BA?

Yes - I used it a few weeks ago. No issue. Actually I vaguely remember that it even shows which airlines can use Fast Track just by the Fast Track signage.

Yup, definitely has signage. Make sure you have Fast Track showing at the top of your boarding pass as it was all electronic checking and without the machine saying Yes you will be turned away. When I was there late morning a week and a half ago the place was MANIC! The queues for normal security were at least 500m long, (anecdotally people said 1km). Fast track was about 25m but still took about 25 minutes to get through.

Thanks. Last time I glanced at fast track must have been a year or more ago. No BA signage then...but since security was basically empty, I didn't bother to try. This time I will, stand my ground and fight!!
