33.5 million passengers flew to or from one of Swedavia’s airports in 2013. As a result, the number of passengers was up 1.1 million compared to the previous record year, 2012. Among the main airports in Scandinavia, passenger volume growth was greatest at Stockholm Arlanda Airport, which had a five per cent increase.
Swedavia’s revenue was up 5 per cent for the year to SEK 5,233 M (4,965), while operating income increased to SEK 946 M (831). The growth in earnings is a result of more passengers flying to or from Swedavia’s airports, which increased revenue, while acquisitions previously carried out also boosted earnings.
“More air connections during the year increased Swedish access and were well received by our passengers. Meanwhile, Swedavia has taken concrete steps to ensure future capacity at its airports, although the environmental permit for Stockholm Arlanda Airport will continue to be a challenge in the coming periods,” says Torborg Chetkovich, chief executive of Swedavia.
At the same time, passenger satisfaction at Swedavia’s airport has moved in the right direction. A 75 per cent increase in the final quarter produced a full-year figure of 73 per cent. That means the measures implemented to develop more attractive and efficient airports are appreciated by passengers.
