Another passenger record for Sweden

The results are in for Swedavia’s ten airports for January and the most recent rolling 12-month period.

More than 2,900,000 passengers flew to or from Swedish airport operator Swedavia’s ten airports in January, up 2% year-on-year and resulting in another passenger record. This continues the record results of 2017.

International passenger traffic was up by just over 3% to more than 1,900,000 passengers, while domestic volumes stayed at essentially the same level as in January 2017, at 1,006,000 passengers.

Both Stockholm Arlanda and Gothenburg Landvetter saw a 2% increase to more than 1,800,000 passengers and more than 450,000 passengers, respectively. Traffic at Stockholm Bromma Airport rose slightly faster, by 3%, to 185,000 passengers.

At the group’s seven other airports, there were relatively small year-on-year changes in passenger volume. The biggest increases in absolute numbers were at Malmö (to 156,000 passengers, up 2%) and Åre Östersund (to 46,000 passengers, up 5%).

Rolling results
This means that the total number of passengers for the most recent rolling 12-month period, February 2017 to January 2018, was 41,980,000, which is a 6% increase.

During the same rolling 12-month period, domestic traffic was up 2% to 14,000,000 passengers, while international traffic was up 8% to 27,960,000.
