The growth in passengers flying to and from Swedavia’s airports continued during September compared to the same period in 2014. The trend for international travel remains strong, with volume up a full 11 per cent. Domestic travel was up four per cent. A total of just over 3.5 million people arrived or departed from the Group’s airports, an increase of almost 300,000 passengers.

During the month of September, a total of more than 3.5 million people flew to or from one of Swedavia’s ten Swedish airports. Passenger volume was thus eight per cent higher compared to September last year. Measured in passenger numbers, the increase was almost 300,000. There were  almost 2.3 million international passengers, which is an 11 per cent increase compared to the same month last year. Domestic travel increased four per cent to almost 1.3 million passengers.

For Stockholm Arlanda Airport, international passenger volume was up 7 per cent while domestic passenger volume was up 2 per cent.

“During September, another international direct route was launched from Stockholm Arlanda Airport, to Hong Kong, which provides ever more passengers with an opportunity to fly non-stop to their destination. Domestic travel continues to trend in the right direction, and the figures for September show that the work to enhance access and increase people’s options for air travel in Sweden and beyond is a success,” says Torborg Chetkovich, chief executive of Swedavia.

So far in 2015, the number of passengers at Swedavia’s airports is up five per cent to 28.3 million.
International traffic increased eight per cent to 18.6 million during the first nine months of the year. There were more than 19,000 landings in scheduled and charter operations during September, which is a one per cent increase compared to last year.
