Change in travel offering affects air traffic in May

2014-06-09, kl. 11:20

Almost 216,800 passengers flew to or from Bromma Stockholm Airport in May 2014. That is a decrease of 3 per cent compared to the same month in 2013. Domestic traffic fell 1 per cent, while international traffic declined 17 per cent.

"We see that May traffic is a few percentage points lower compared to the figure for last year. That is mostly due to two factors. International travel fell because of a change in the offering from the carrier Flybe, which discontinued service between Tallinn and Bromma in April, and because May included more holidays and bridge days (squeezed between a holiday and weekend). This had some effect on traffic since many of our returning passengers travel on business," says Peder Grunditz, airport director at Bromma Stockholm Airport.

"During the summer, we will complete construction on our brand-new restaurant concept in the terminal and at the same time expand the number of seats in the departure hall. We are carrying out these measures to improve the atmosphere because we want to improve our service and meet the demand for food and beverages at the airport. The plan is to inaugurate the new restaurant section after the summer holidays," Mr Grunditz adds.

The number of landings in scheduled and charter operations fell 6 per cent to about 2,000 in May compared to the same month last year.

So far in 2014, January-May, the number of passengers at Bromma Stockholm Airport is up 4 per cent to almost 986,000. The number of international passengers so far this year has increased 3 per cent to about 109,400, while the number of domestic passengers has increased 4 per cent to about 876,300.

The number of landings in scheduled operations during the period January-May was just over 9,600, which is unchanged compared to the same period in 2013.
