Goteborg -11%

The ones I’m surprised by are these:
Karlstad +26%
Skelleftea -34%

Karlstad has an excellent train connection to Stockholm (2:20 to 3:00 normal travel time). Perhaps some construction work on the way to Kristinehamn has affected the travel choices?

Skellefteå??? Umeå and Luleå are basically unchanged, so why -34 % in Skellefteå? Have the airline companies reduced the frequency there and some SFT pax fill up a slack in LLA and UME that thereby becomes invisible in these numbers? Train to Stockholm is an 8-9 hour project, so I would expect business travels to be pretty much unchanged, even if private travel may see a minor decline due to the environmental

Nextjet. In June last year there were no flights to Stockholm. But yes, most people going to Stockholm take the train.

Norwegian left Skellefteå in January and now SAS has a monopoly on the route to Stockholm. That probably means fewer seats on the route, and higher prices leading people to choose other options. Like the overnight train, or driving/taking the bus to UME.

Finnair and Air Italy have signed a "Special Prorate Agreement" (SPA):

Now, thanks to the agreement with Finnair, five new key destinations in Finland (Helsinki, Turku, Oulu, Kokkola and Rovaniemi) are all now available via Milan Malpensa for Air Italy passengers departing from our seven key airports in central & southern Italy (Rome, Naples, Palermo, Catania, Lamezia Terme, Cagliari and Olbia).

At the same time, Finnair’s customers have now the opportunity to fly to Air Italy’s African destinations, traveling from Finland via Milan Malpensa, and connect seamlessly to Dakar, Lagos, Accra, Sharm El-Sheikh and Cairo.


Interesting. To be honest I'm not sure how this SPA differs from a codeshare agreement.

SAS had the best July in the airline's history last month. And June was the highest number ever for one month.

2.8 million passengers in July 2019, and 2.9 million in June 2019.

Finnair discontinues four routes this autumn. In addition to Chongqing, AY says goodbye to Kazan, Samara and Yekaterinburg, thus reduces the number of flights to Russia by 10 flights per week. According to Finnair, the performance of these Russian routes didn't meet the financial expectations.

I wonder if the cancellation of the Russian routes will have an impact in pax volume on AY's U.S routes. It is also pretty rare of Finnair to end so many routes. AY did cancel flights to Minsk this year as well...

Yle.fi (in Russian)


Could it be that they are experiencing fleet shortages? After all they are increasing DUB and EDI this winter so they are maybe switching aircraft to routes that seem more promising?


I'm sorry to say, but no. As much as I'd like to these Russian routes to continue, apparently it's not worth it. These flights have been exclusively using NORRA planes that would have been otherwise just sitting idle at HEL, so quitting them just means the flights couldn't cover the fuel/personnel costs. Yes, AY is experiencing fleet shortages, but quitting these flights can't be related to that, except for crew shortages.

Sälen and Kiruna offer quite different winter experiences, but perhaps SAS has to choose one over the other. Abandoning Kiruna to serve Sälen seems odd to me. Sälen has great ski opportunities, but that can be found in the Alps as well. Kiruna with the northern lights, the ice hotel and the vast wilderness is only found there (unless Russia or Canada is an option).

SAS will fly Heathrow-Kiruna on a small number of dates for Discover the World. Flights are only available to those buying a holiday package (i.e. accommodation, transfers, etc)
https://www.discover-the-world.com/dest ... -icehotel/
I can fully understand why this route would be with a full service carrier out of Heathrow - the people going for a few days to the Ice Hotel with Discover the World are likely to have plenty of money - these holidays do not come cheap, so Ryanair out of Stansted is not going to work.

As Fredrik points out, the Ice Hotel has few competitors in Europe - I can think of only the snow castle at Kemi in northern Finland but there are no direct flights to London and it's not quite as good a location for the aurora borealis. Salen/Trysil have to compete with the Alps and Pyrenees so will find it harder to charge a premium price to tourists

Kiruna ice hotel is well known but there are others too. There have been a snow castle & hotel near Kittilä (KTT) airport and ski resorts in Finnish Lapland for many years, the past two winters their theme was Game of Thrones, co operating with HBO naturally. Not sure what's coming next. In winter KTT is well connected to UK and Central Europe, by Finnair, Lufthansa, Easyjet etc, plus the numerous charters. In 2018 KTT had 145K international passengers.

It will be very interesting to see how the routes to Sälen work out. But they do have one advantage, no need for a long bus transfer after you land. The airport is 7 km from the closest resort/slopes.

Viewing the route map at Norwegian and I noticed that no U.S flights departing from ARN are on sale for S20 (BKK however is). I'm just wondering whether there actually is a possibility of DY cutting all Stockholm–U.S routes and making some other reductions (temporarily, I assume) for the next summer season. Yes, I know it's way too early to make any conclusions, but flights from CPH to MCO and OSL to JFK/MCO/LAX, however, are available for booking. After they cut all U.S routes from CPH from W19/20 schedule, it wouldn't be that surprising if happened.

At this moment, I'm pretty skeptical about this but I'm just wondering...

I don’t see Karlstad in this list. Do you have those numbers as well? In your previous July 2018/2019 comparison, it said ”Karlstad +26%”, so let’s see what the official stats say.


Karlstad in spring 2018 was dominated domestically by the route to Stockholm, operated by Nextjet without any competitors who went bust in the middle of May 2018. Leap began flying the route in mid-July. Thus for the bulk of May-July 2018 there was no scheduled domestic traffic. For this reason, May-July 2018 and May-July 2019 are not really comparable

Stats from the Swedish Transport Agency for July 2019 are now out.
Arlanda -9.3 %

Sad numbers. SJ surely must be thriving? Or possibly travellers are going by bus. In Denmark Flixbus has really taken off.


SJ have definitely seen a large increase in passengers both last year and this year.
