Traffic figures from Avinor for January 2022
A total of 1,877,869 passengers travelled to, from, or via Avinor’s airports in January 2022. This represents an increase of 123.1 per cent compared with the same month in 2021 but is also 50.7 per cent lower than the last normal year recorded in 2019.
“We have seen an increase in passengers in January on international routes, especially from Norway’s biggest hub, Oslo airport. International traffic is now at almost the same volume as domestic routes from the capital’s airport. This is in spite of Omicron, which is currently leaving its mark on society. We believe this increase may reflect high levels of vaccination, Covid-19 certificates, and a general increase in the desire to travel among the population despite the many travel restrictions that were in place during January. At the same time, the domestic market is also growing. Overall, we still remain some way below the traffic figures in 2019, which was our last normal year before the pandemic,” says Gaute Skallerud Riise, VP Traffic Development, Avinor.
