In December, some 2.6 million people flew to or from one of Swedavia’s airports, which is a 6 per cent increase in volume compared to December 2013. In numerical terms, the increase was 150,000. The number of international passengers was almost 1.7 million, an increase of 8 per cent compared to the same month in 2013.
In 2014, passenger volume at Swedavia’s airports was up 7 per cent for a total of 35.6 million passengers. That means Swedavia set a new record in 2014, with an increase of just over 2.2 million passengers.
“It is gratifying and clear confirmation of the importance of our airports for access to, from and within Sweden. New non-stop routes also provide businesses with greater opportunities to compete internationally,” says Torborg Chetkovich, chief executive at Swedavia.
The number of landings in scheduled and charter operations during the year was up 3 per cent to about 205,000 compared to the same period in 2013.
