During May, more than two million passengers flew via Stockholm Arlanda Airport, which means an increase of one per cent compared to May 2014. Traffic to the biggest international destination, Copenhagen, fell for the fifth straight month, as a result of the ever growing number of non-stop routes from Stockholm Arlanda.
In May, 2,053,921 passengers flew via Stockholm Arlanda, which is a one per cent increase compared to May last year. The number of international passengers was up again to almost 1.6 million (+3%). However, the number of domestic passengers fell to just under 500,000 (-4%), mainly due to the SAS labour dispute at the end of the month, when almost 100 departures were cancelled.
Copenhagen is still the biggest destination, with London and Oslo following closely behind, but traffic on this route fell for the fifth month in a row.
“We can see that the ever expanding range of direct routes available from Stockholm Arlanda reduces the need to change planes in Copenhagen,” says Kjell-Åke Westin, airport director at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.
The ten largest destinations from Stockholm Arlanda in May were Copenhagen, London, Oslo, Helsinki, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Gothenburg, Paris, Berlin, Malmö and Luleå. The number of landings at Stockholm Arlanda fell two per cent compared to May 2014.
