Record year for Luleå Airport

2014-01-07, kl. 17:05

Luleå Airport has once again passed the million passenger mark, according to statistics now released for the full-year 2013. This is the third year in a row that the airport has broken the million mark and set a new passenger record. The number of passengers travelling to and from Luleå Airport continues to rise. In 2013, travel was up 2 per cent compared to 2012. A total of 1,106,638 passengers flew to or from Luleå Airport in 2013.

2014 will be another exciting year for this region’s modernised airport. In a short time, Leos Lekland (a play area for children) will be completed, the restaurant will undergo refurbishment before opening in April as O’Learys, and this year’s new charter service to the Greek island of Samos will be launched.

“We have had a fantastic year. Our new, modern airport is finally ready to meet the travel of the future. Luleå Airport had strong growth in passenger volume during the year, which demonstrates the region’s great need for the access that aviation provides for local residents, development and growth. We are a meeting place that brings people and businesses closer together. One new destination in this year’s charter programme is the Greek island of Samos,” sums up airport director Ann-Christin Viklund.

A total of 1,106,638 passengers flew to or from Luleå Airport in 2013, a 2 per cent increase compared to 2012, when the figure was 1,089,538. The number of international passengers increased 15 per cent, from 81,106 to 93,286. Domestic traffic was up 0.5 per cent, from 1,008,432 to 1,013,352 passengers.
