All-time passenger high at Oslo Airport

September passenger figures reach almost 2 million

The continuing strength of Norwegians’ purchasing power is said to be behind the strong growth in passenger figures at Oslo Airport. These reached 1,971,231 in September, an all-time high for this month and 7.4% more than September 2010. “We see that the purchasing power of Norwegians is still strong, and this applies to both business and private passengers,” Knut Stabæk, marketing director for traffic development, said.
Much of the growth came as a result of the increasingly popularity of domestic routes, where the number of passengers increased by 7.9% year-on-year, as opposed to a 7% growth on international flights. The routes with the biggest increases were to Tromsø, Ålesund, Bodø and Stockholm.
