International air travel increases at Malmö Airport

2015-02-05, kl. 11:29

Some 137,000 passengers flew to or from Malmö Airport in January 2015. That is a 1 per cent increase compared to the same month in 2014. Domestic traffic was down 4 per cent whereas international traffic was up 8 per cent.

“The continued excellent performance of Wizz Air accounts for the increase in international traffic,” says Peter Weinhandl, airport director at Malmö Airport. More destinations and more flights to existing destinations mean an increasing number of people are flying internationally from the airport.

Wizz Air flies from Malmö Airport to Belgrade, Budapest, Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Gdansk, Katowice, Skopje, Sofia, Tuzla and Warsaw. The carrier will launch service to Poznan on March 30, to Vilnius on April 24 and to Niš on June 25.

In all, Wizz Air has 29 routes to eight countries from three airports in Sweden – along with Malmö Airport, the carrier flies from Göteborg Landvetter and Stockholm Skavsta Airport.

The reason for the decline in domestic travel is the unusually large number of holidays that fell in early January, which mainly decreased the number of domestic business trips.
