The number of passengers at Umeå Airport was up 6 per cent during the first quarter of 2016. A total of 245,000 people flew to or from Umeå during the first three months of the year.

In March, Umeå Airport had 90,000 passengers, which was also a 6 per cent increase compared to the same month last year.

“We have the pleasure of being located in an expanding region with good growth. When there is a lot happening in Umeå, there is also greater interest in us as a destination. This is reflected in our passenger statistics now,” says B-O Lindgren, airport director at Umeå Airport.

Domestic travel accounts for the largest increase. The 236,000 people who flew domestically to or from the airport during the first quarter represent an 8 per cent increase compared to the same quarter last year. 

There were some 9,000 international passengers, which was about 3,000 fewer than during the first quarter of 2015.
