During the month of June, 2.2 million passengers flew via Stockholm Arlanda. The number of international passengers was just over 1.7 million (+12 per cent) and the number of domestic passengers was 450,000 (+15 per cent) compared to the same month in 2013.
"In June, traffic at Stockholm Arlanda Airport set new records. Domestic travel stood out, with an increase of 15.3 per cent, and Visby and Kiruna had the greatest gains. We see clearly that the market is responding directly to the increased offering of routes from the airlines, which shows that there continues to be great demand for efficient air connections," says Kjell-Åke Westin, airport director at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.
London and Copenhagen have been taking turns as the top destination – in June, it was London that topped the list. They are followed by Oslo, which accounted for the greatest increase in international traffic for the month. New York continues to grow in popularity as a destination, with passenger volume up a full 29 per cent during the first six months of the year compared to the same period last year.
