Decline in air traffic after summer
New figures show a 60 percent decrease in traffic at Avinor's airports in August compared with August in 2019.
- During summer, traffic increased week by week due to vacation and changes in the travel advice from the authorities. The increase lasted until the first week of August. Since then, traffic has been declining, says Gaute Skallerud Riise, Vice President Traffic Development at Avinor Group.
Overall, the figures for August show a 50 percent decrease in domestic traffic and an 84 percent decrease in international traffic from Avinor airports, compared with August 2019.
Before summer, Avinor had envisioned a gradual increase in traffic over the summer and autumn/winter of 2020/2021.
- We now understand that this is a situation that persists, and unfortunately, it will probably take a long time before air traffic is back on the same level as in 2019. We expect that future developments will largely depend on when a COVID19-vaccine is ready for mass distribution, Riise concludes.
