I am surprised that while August domestic traffic at ARN was down about 10 %, September is down just 3 %
Assuming the numbers are correct I can only guess that tax and flygskam are affecting primarily leisure travel, but those flying for work have not been affected in the same way

I am also wondering whether flygskam will have same effect in the middle of winter with snow on the ground, as in July.

Well despite Stockholm being the largest city in the Nordic region, ARN is still only the third largest airport in passengers numbers. Why? Connections aren't a huge thing there and besides that they are a pain in the arse. Despite being in Schengen and the EU, domestic flights operate from separate terminals and there are no airside walkways to make the transfers seamless. Even OSL, being outside the EU, has installed an airside customs border so you can transfer from international to domestic flights without having to go through security again, or rechecking your luggage. At CPH domestic and intra-Schengen flights operate from the same area.

At ARN I've always said that Terminal 4 should just be made part of Terminal 5 with an airside walkway constructed in Sky City. Then domestic and intra-Schengen flights can operate from the same area and transfers are made easier. There is precedent for this in Sweden: at GOT all domestic and intra-Schengen flights operate from the same area within the terminal.

HEL is huge on connections, which I imagine is the main driver in pushing its passenger numbers upwards. OSL has a large number of connections from international to domestic flights and vice versa and CPH serves both a huge metropolitan area (Sjælland + Skåne) and is big connecting hub.

ARN has an airside bus between terminals.

Isnt flygskam primarily a leisure thing? People want to post on Facebook and say they took the train or selected a vacation in Sweden instead? Doesn’t give you that many likes on Facebook if you do the same for some work related thing. I guess flygskam might have a longer term effect on business travel as well. The companies wants to send the same signals and change their travel policies. Question is if these new travel policies is just to win some points on social media or if they will be implemented. Seen many cases of people saying one thing and doing something else, stordalen is my favourite

Leisure travel is massive in Scandinavia. Generally poor weather and too much money ensures that it isn't uncommon for Scandinavians to go on holiday twice or more a year. It will make up a far greater percentage than in the rest of Europe.

Probably Norwegian. They stopped flying to Skellefteå and reduced Kiruna.
I also think Norwegian increased their prices in Scandinavia to compensate for all other money burning operations they are doing around the world. That’s probably why SAS selling more tickets to a higher price domestically.

How is it with flygskam (=fly shame) in Denmark, Norway, Iceland? It hasn't really hit Finland, not yet at least, other climate/enviromental issues like meat comsumption and plastic waste get much more attention. Finland is practically an island, it's complicated to get anywhere further abroad without flying, not much choices for the business travellers especially. For many a holiday in warmer climates, 1-2 times a year, is seen as a fundamental right. I can fully understand this, you need to break the winter darkness somehow.

CPH is the local airport for much of Sweden. Sweden's 3rd largest city is much closer to CPH than Stockholm is to ARN.

A substantial part of the more densely part of Sweden has CPH as the natural hub.

That way Swedish "flyskam" hits CPH as well. Then there was the strikes.

CPH is still the major Danish hub, but for western Denmark it is losing ground to especially AMS. SAS strikes were very good for KLM and AMS.

I still believe that a slowdown in the Swedish economy is more important to the decline of flying, than actual flygskam. Might be proven wrong eventually if the economy comes back and the flying does not increase again.

I've seen a number of graphs on this subject, and the Scandinavian countries along with Finland tend to top them out. France is the only other European country that even appeared in the top 10, and then it was clearly domestic travels.

With the risk that this turns in to an economic forum I would say the Swedish economy is considered by some to be at risk of going in to a slump. GDP growth was 0,1 in Q2 and the number that is interesting -GDP/Capita- Sweden with its increasing population is expected to have the third lowest number in the EU in 2019. And a weak currency doesn’t help the will to travel abroad.

Agree with previous comments that for now it is just guesses if it is flygskam or the economy that makes people less willing to fly. However comparing Sweden and Denmark I would say flygskam gets far more attention in Sweden. I would say occasionally it is out of proportions.

While it probably only explains part of the difference between August and September: I assume the traffic pattern is somewhat similar in Sweden and Norway. And in Norway, there is a significant slump in domestic traffic on Saturdays. Basically no business traffic, and those going away for the weekend, usually travels on Fridays and Sundays. And in August 2019, there was one of those months containing 5 Saturdays, which makes a small "dent" in the domestic traffic, usually a few percentages.

International traffic, is a little more stable during the week

It's one of five international routes BRA has announced. The other are:

MMX – TXL

That means, if I'm not mistaken, that there will be five airlines competing on the Tallinn-Stockholm route.

I live in the north of Germany and have been to Finland a couple of times. While it can be significant colder up in Finland I think the biggest issue is about light. When there’s only a couple of hours of light during the day I fully understand that people need to take a break from that. And from Tampere for example they can easily take Ryanair. I also know a couple of people that travel far using the excellent Asian routes Finnair offers.
Germany is easy though. Palma de Mallorca, Crete, Antalya, Djerba, Canary Islands - it’s important they find themselves among people that are similar ;)

Any specific reason why you find it very worrying? I agree that the decrease in load factor is not a good sign, but traffic still increased +3,8% (much less than the capacity +10,8% though). However, I'm willing to bet that the situation in HKG has a considerably negative effect on this - much of the added capacity was allocated to HKG. (Going double daily vs last year.)

This is definitely very interesting! I hope these routes will be successful! I love the experience of going through BMA compared to ARN from Stockholm City.

However, usually when you see a financially troubled airline going for a growth spree....it has rarely been a good sign. I hope that situation at BRA is not that bad though.

However, a lot of this new flights (not all though) seems to be centered around off-peak periods during mid-day. So they probably have some spare capacity that is better used here, that flying "empty" domestic runs

Ah, well that's clever! I like it how BRA flies in the same sense UME for AY, as well as WF from BGO, TOS & TRD to HEL. It's a win-win, something for the regionals to do during the mid-day crunch, while giving AY additional Asian connections without the need to fly the return sectors.

Yes I recognice that, you can handle the cold but the lack of natural light is the problem in winter. The light therapy lamp helps a bit but can't beat the real sun :sun:
I just listened a radio program on this subject, they said no big changes in the travel habbits in Finland, the most popular winter destinations still are Spain & Canaries and Thailand. I learnt Norwegians are the biggest travellers in Europe with an average 2.0 outbound trips per person per year, followed by Finns and Swedes.

It relies on Ryanair, Laudamotion to VIE coming nest spring, zero domestic services. A large part of the passengers have been Russians, LPP is located near the border.

I looked online and Tampere is really underserved, not many airlines fly there. I see that Turku is some 160 km away and they have received a lot of attention from airlines, especially Wizz Air. Could they be taking away some passengers from them?

Probably some effect but it's especially HEL (170km) that vacuums the passengers from the Tampere region (300K inhabitants). TMP had big hopes for Ryanair, a low cost terminal was refurbished for them but the business has dried out now. The passengers numbers in TMP have come down from the record 700K to 200K in ten years.

The number of low cost airlines and routes in Finland is generally very small, unless you count Norwegian as one. I compare it with AY and SK in terms of price and service (well, networks are different, particularly because Norwegian refuses to sell two stop flights, and AY and SK excel in the handling of problems, but all other is quite equal).

As mentioned in other thread, DY increases frequencies in several Europe–U.S routes. However, these are the only additions from the Nordics:

Fort Lauderdale-Oslo Three weekly flights (up from twice weekly)
Oakland-Oslo Three weekly flights (up from twice weekly)

So, no additions to ARN or CPH. It seems that these additions are possible to implement partially due to the reductions at CPH and ARN. It's also possible that now seasonal Trans-Atlantic routes from CPH and ARN won't even return in S20.

So does this mean Norwegian is trying to centralise it's Scandinavian long-haul at OSL? It makes sense from an operations point of view and OSL - after the renovations - is a great passenger experience. Once the new non-Schengen pier is completed hopefully they will establish US pre-clearance making it even more attractive.

Norwegian's Andres Hjørnholm assured to Check-in.dk that U.S routes from CPH will resume in S20 but let's see... No mention of ARN.

Centralising all Scandinavian long-haul routes to OSL would actually make sense at the moment since Danish, Swedish and Finnish passengers can easily transfer through OSL. From my point of view, there's really no need to have long-haul flights to same cities from three airports so close to each other (CPH, OSL and ARN) given Norwegian's current financial situation. It may be wise to move capacity to routes with better yields and where demand is higher (although I have no idea whether yields actually are higher or lower at LGW, CDG etc. than at CPH or ARN).

Makes sense to centralise to OSL but isn’t the whole idea of a LCC to spot the unserved routes or uncovered market areas. It is build in point to point to to take those market shares and not to build up a hub activity?
