Swedavia Airports Greeted Almost 2.5 Million Passengers In March

March saw a rise in travelers using Swedavia’s airports, reaching nearly 2.5 million passengers. International flights gain momentum with a 5 percent hike from the previous year. Domestic flights, however, experienced a dip due to the early Easter, leading to reduced local travel demand.

Key growth airports include Stockholm Arlanda, Göteborg Landvetter, and Kiruna, which have experienced the highest passenger increase. As spring unfolds, airlines are ramping up their offerings in Sweden, introducing new summer flights. Notably, Delta Air Lines is set to revive its direct route from Arlanda to New York in April.

“Demand for international travel continued to increase, while domestic travel was weaker, especially during Easter, with the exception of Kiruna Airport, where both international and domestic travel increased during the month. Our airline customers continue to gradually strengthen our range of routes and destinations ahead of the summer season, which is positive for Sweden’s connectivity. Air travel enables people to meet and benefits the tourism industry in Sweden while meeting the market demand for international travel for work and leisure, to meet family and friends and to create new experiences,” says Charlotte Ljunggren, Director of Marketing and commercial development at Swedavia.
