Fewer passengers from Avinor's airports in October


The largest decline is in international passenger traffic.

There were close to 70 per cent fewer passengers from Avinor's airports in October, compared to the same month in 2019. The largest decline is in international passenger traffic.

About 1.5 million passengers traveled from or to Avinor's airports in October.

- Air traffic is still very much affected by the corona pandemic. The traffic figures for October show about the same decline, compared to last year, which we saw in September, says Gaute Skallerud Riise, director of traffic development at Avinor.

Domestically, there were 53.4 per cent fewer passengers in October compared to the same month last year, while international passenger traffic had a decrease of as much as 92 per cent compared to October 2019.

- In the transition from October to November, traffic, especially domestic, has fallen markedly compared to previous weeks. We attribute this mainly to the strict restrictions that have been introduced, Riise concludes.
