Sweden lowers airport charges for 2016

Swedavia says charges are lower than competing airports
Swedavia has decided to decrease airport charges by 0.8 percent from April 1. The cut will be carried out through a series of adjustments of individual charge levels at the operator’s airports.
Swedavia explained in a statement that its decision has “the purpose to support accessibility and long-term traffic development to and from Swedavia’s airports”.
It points to Gothenburg’s Landvetter Airport, where an 18% rise in passenger numbers in 2015 has contributed to lower average cost levels and increased efficiency.
The charges at Swedavia’s airports are already low in benchmarks with other airports, estimated to be on average 20 percentage points lower than similar airports in Northern Europe after the decrease.
