A total of 4,048,811 passengers were recorded in the period January-August 2015. The airlines that previously flew out of Säve account for about 13 per cent of this. But even without this former Säve traffic, passenger volume at Göteborg Landvetter Airport has grown almost 3 per cent so far this year.
“It has been a fantastic summer for travel, with more people flying than ever. Obviously, this creates challenges for those of us who operate the airport, but we are working with all our partners full out to ensure that the journey goes as smoothly as possible, from the time people park their car or get off the bus to the time they step on board the plane,” Charlotte Ljunggren, airport director at Göteborg Landvetter Airport.
The number of passengers who flew internationally in August was 427,667 (up 17 per cent compared to August 2014). From January to August, 3,155,785 people flew internationally to or from Göteborg Landvetter (up 23 per cent).
