Capacity is ensured through an accelerated investment rate

A number of refurbishmentand expansion projects were carried out at the regional airports. At theairports in Kiruna, Luleå and Umeå, this was done through joint funding with theregions affected. Now resources are being concentrated mainly on StockholmArlanda Airport, Göteborg Landvetter Airport and Bromma Stockholm Airport.
Alongside measuresto increase capacity, Swedavia is alsoincreasing opportunities to develop the atmosphere at the airports and enhance the commercial offering in the form of moreshops, cafés and restaurants.
