2013 was a record year for the number of passengers who flew to and from Umeå Airport. By the end of December, 989,094 passengers had flown via the airport, which is 8,000 more than in 2012. International traffic was up a full 12 per cent, while domestic traffic remained at the same level as in 2012.
These positive figures mean that Umeå Airport will most likely pass the million passenger mark in 2014.
“It is very satisfying that we are increasing the number of passengers, and now that the refurbishment work is almost complete and Umeå is kicking off its year as European Capital of Culture in 2014, we have a positive outlook for the future. A lot would have to happen for us not to exceed the million passenger mark in an exciting 2014,” says a pleased B-O Lindgren, airport director at Umeå Airport.
