The number of passengers at Göteborg Landvetter Airport continues to rise. In January 2012, total air traffic was up nine per cent compared to the same period in 2011. The growth is mainly in travel in Sweden. Domestic traffic increased by 21 per cent, while international traffic rose five per cent. 

In January, 356,529 passengers flew to and from Göteborg Landvetter Airport, an increase of nine per cent compared to the same period in 2011. International traffic rose by five per cent to 258,310 passengers, and domestic traffic was up 21 per cent to 98,219 passengers.
“More people are choosing to fly to and from their place of work. This shows the strength of air travel as a means of mass transit where speed and reliability are concerned. It is also clear that air travel plays an important role for business in western Sweden,” says Olle Sundin, airport director at Göteborg Landvetter.

Domestic flights carry passengers to Borlänge, Luleå, Umeå, Sundsvall, Visby, Östersund and Stockholm from Göteborg Landvetter Airport. The Gothenburg–Stockholm route shows the most growth. A choice of almost 20 departures with Malmö Aviation, SAS and Norwegian is available each day from Göteborg Landvetter Airport to Bromma Stockholm Airport and Stockholm Arlanda Airport. Some 94,500 passengers chose air travel as a means of mass transit to and from Stockholm in January.
