Decision on adjustments of airport charges 2015

2015-01-08, kl. 13:29

Swedavia has decided to decrease airport charges 3.7 percent from April 1, 2015, in line with Swedavia’s long term ambition to offer very competitive charges. Reduced charges will relieve airlines in a market situation where competition is fierce and ticket prices are low.

The decrease is carried out through a series of adjustments of the charge structure and individual charge levels, with the purpose to support accessibility and long term travel to and from Swedavia’s airports, for example trough enhanced conditions for hub airlines and long haul traffic:

  • A reduction of the passenger charge by 40 percent for transfer passengers at Stockholm Arlanda Airport, Bromma Stockholm Airport, Göteborg Landvetter Airport and Malmö Airport
  • A new cap for the take-off charge at 175 tons
  • A new structure for the terminal navigation charge
  • New local charges for ground handling infrastructure and assistance service for disabled travellers and travellers with reduced mobility (PRM)
  • A simplified and less administrative incentive program, with extended rebates for intercontinental passenger growth and new intercontinental routes

The Charge level at Swedavia’s airports is already very low in benchmarks with other airports, and is after the decrease estimated to be on average 15-20 percentages lower than for competing and similar airports in Northern Europe.

In correspondence to lowering charges, Swedavia ensures long-term capacity to enable future growth for airlines. Investments to make room for the expected future passenger growth are crucial, not the least at Stockholm Arlanda Airport, where Swedavia has announced a long term development plan with total capital expenditures of 13 billion SEK.
