Traffic statistics show that March was another record month for Göteborg Landvetter Airport. A total of 466,514 people flew to or from Göteborg Landvetter in March, which is a 14 per cent increase compared to a year ago.

We are also working with a number of different organisations, including Göteborg & Co, to attract foreign tourists to our region,” says Charlotte Ljunggren, airport director.

Domestic traffic in March 2015 was at the same level as in March last year, with 125,622 people flying domestically to and from Göteborg Landvetter. So far this year, domestic traffic has fallen 3 per cent compared to the same period in 2014.

The number of landings in March increased 7 per cent to 2,804.

“A number of new routes were launched or will be launched in the near future by airlines such as SAS, Swiss and Ryanair. It is not unlikely that we will pass the half million passenger mark for a single month in April,” Ms Ljunggren adds.
