The decline in air traffic continues in 2021
84 1484 passengers traveled to and from Avinor airports in January 2021. This is a decrease of 77.9 per cent compared with last year. The number of aircraft movements decreased by 39,3 per cent.
The figures show that new travel restrictions further affect traffic figures. On Saturday 30 January, Oslo Airport had the lowest passenger number this year. Only 2,600 passengers traveled through Norway's main airport that day.
- There is uncertainty associated with future developments, especially within the international segment, but we are somewhat more optimistic now compared to the previous traffic forecast in November, says director of traffic development at Avinor, Gaute Skallerud Riise. This is primarily due to the fact that three different vaccines have been approved for use in Norway, which means that we are seeing the end of the pandemic, he explains.
In the long term, Avinor base the scenarios on the Department of Transport Economics' latest forecasts for air traffic, which indicate that air traffic will return to the 2019 level in 2023/2024.
