Overall, traffic increased 13 per cent compared to June 2012, from 28,771 to 32,252 passengers.
“It is good news that air traffic is now back to its previous high levels after last year’s decline,” says Gunnar Jonasson, airport director at Visby Airport. “We see new destinations being added, summer airlines expanding their operations and clearer competition between the year-round airlines Gotlandsflyg and NextJet.
“International traffic has had considerable growth thanks to increased capacity given competing traffic from both Helsinki and Oslo. It feels good knowing that the marketing efforts carried out by parts of the tourism sector in Gotland together with Visit Sweden in Norway and in Finland are producing results. It shows that we win by working together with destination marketing,” Mr Jonasson concludes.
