The number of passengers who flew domestically increased 12 per cent to about 15,300, while the number of passengers who flew internationally increased 14 per cent to about 19,700.
“December was a strong month for Bromma Stockholm, with domestic and international passenger number both on the rise. Factors contributing to this increase are the new route between Bromma Stockholm and Åre Östersund, an expansion in capacity and an increase in the number of departures to different domestic destinations and to Tallinn,” says Peder Grunditz, airport director at Bromma Stockholm Airport.
The number of landings in scheduled operations was up six per cent to about 1,700 in December. In 2013, the number of landings was down five per cent to about 22,500.
“Looking back at 2013 as a whole, it was a good year for Bromma Stockholm. In all, we had about 2,280,000 passengers at the airport, which is only 15,000 fewer than the record set last year, when we had an all-time high. The second half of the year was also strong, with passenger volume up almost four per cent compared to the same period last year,” Mr Grunditz notes.
“In 2013, we invested in a number of different improvements, including refurbishment of all the lavatories in the check-in hall, an expansion in seating and workspaces in the terminal, a 150 per cent increase in the number of automated check-in machines per cent, and the purchase of Sweden’s most modern snow removal equipment, which increases access by up to 50 per cent in snowy weather. During the spring, we look forward to inaugurating an even smoother security checkpoint and an expanded restaurant concept. It will be an eventful spring,” Mr Grunditz adds.
