2013-01-08, kl. 14:16

Never before have so many travellers flown to or from Malmö Airport as in 2012. In the past year 2.1 million people travelled from the airport which is an increase of eight per cent compared with 2011.

The number of international passengers increased by 22 percent during the year, and the number of domestic passengers decreased by 0.5 percent.

“More and more people are travelling from Malmö Airport, in the past three years we have seen a passenger increase of over 30 percent, which is a fantastic development. The airport is important to the region's inhabitants, development and growth. We are a meeting place that brings people and businesses closer together," says Peter Weinhandl, airport director at Malmö Airport.

“We look forward to the spring of 2013 when two major events will take place in Malmö. In addition to the Eurovision Song Contest, which will create a large travelling demand to Malmö, cruise ships will start calling at Malmö in May. Passengers will be arriving in Malmö via Malmö Airport with Air Pullmantur and all in all, about 40,000 Spaniards will travel to and from the airport."
