Malmö Airport’s airlines
Malmö Airport is served by a total of 15 airlines and tour operators. Together they fly to and from more than forty domestic, international and charter destinations.
Every year, 10,000 departing passengers are interviewed at Malmö Airport (90 per cent international routes and 10 per cent domestic). The survey gathers information about the passenger’s travel patterns based on end destinations, transfer points, reasons for travel and demographic factors.
In 2011, the number of passengers at Malmö Airport grew by 22 per cent as a result of Malmö and Skåne being promoted as a popular tourist destination, a strengthening economy, and the establishment of several new destinations and airlines. In the passenger survey the increase in travellers is broken down into a smaller amount of business travellers, more international travellers and a larger amount of young travellers.
The 22 per cent increase is equivalent to nearly 350,000 passengers. The absolute increase of travellers was greatest at Stockholm, Belgrad, Antalya, Las Palmas and London whilst the greatest rate of increase was at Innsbruck, Sharjah, Arrecife, Antalya and Split.
*only destinations trafficking to and from Malmö Airport during both 2010 and 2011 have been used in the calculation.
Malmö – a business and tourist destination
Malmö is a city for visiting, living, enjoying and working in. Sweden’s third largest city has undergone a major change during the last twenty years – not least within industry and hospitality sector. Malmö’s geographical location with its proximity to Copenhagen and Kastrup airport as well as the entire Öresund region plays a vital role for growth. Large industries have given way to small and mid-sized companies within a whole spectrum of industries.
Malmö University was established in 1998 and has today grown into the country’s largest university with 25,000 students. Together with Lund, Malmö is the hub in an international city region which is constantly developing. Here, you find a combination of nationalities, life styles and businesses.
Entrepreneurs, researchers, youth, students, artists and investors take advantage of each other – proof of this is the fact that ESS and MAX IV have placed their international research facilities in the area. During the last ten years, the hospitality sector has started to play an important role for Malmö’s development – investments have taken place in a series of new arenas, hotels and exhibition venues.
