International travel continues to increase at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. February statistics show a five per cent rise in the number of international passengers, while the number of domestic passengers was at the same level as in February last year.

There are more and more passengers at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. During February, more than 1,500,000 passengers travelled via the airport, which is a four per cent increase compared to the same month last year. International traffic was up five per cent to 1,152,955 passengers, while domestic traffic was unchanged at 390,769 passengers.

London was the most popular destination, with over 100,000 passengers in February, followed closely by Copenhagen, with about 98,000 passengers.

“The continued increase in international traffic is a result of Stockholm Arlanda’s growing number of non-stop destinations and demonstrates the need for good air links with the rest of Europe and the world. Having many direct flights is good for travellers, business and the environment,” says Kjell-Åke Westin, airport director at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.

The number of landings at Stockholm Arlanda fell two per cent to 8,323 compared to February 2014. The trend of ever larger aircraft and higher passenger load factor thus continues.
