Airports see 6% rise in international travel in January
Strong growth in international air travel from Sweden has continued into 2015. The number of international passengers at Swedavia’s ten airports was up 6% in January compared to the same month in 2014, to almost 1.6 million.
A total of almost 2.5 million passengers flew to or from one of the operator’s ten airports during the month, an increase of 60,000 passengers, or 3%. Swedavia said that this could be explained by an unusually large number of holidays in early January, which reduced the number of domestic business trips.
For the whole of 2014, passenger volume at Swedavia’s airports was up 7% overall, reaching a record 35.6 million.
“We work with great focus to enhance access to and from Sweden, and we hope to be able to attract additional direct routes during the year. This continued passenger growth shows that the Swedish air travel market is worth investing in,” said Torborg Chetkovich, chief executive of Swedavia.
