Vestvågøy Leknes losing traffic

Traffic at the largest airport in Lofoten - Vestvågøy Leknes airport - is falling. Passenger numbers for flights to and from Leknes fell from 63 200 in the first half of 2013 to 55 500 in the first half of 2104. Both periods saw about 2 350 passengers in transit, which means that passengers at Leknes at the start or end of a journey fell by 7 900.

Stronger growth in international traffic than domestic

In the first half of 2014, Norwegian airports had 8.2 million passengers departing on domestic flights; 2.6 per cent above the first half of 2013. The domestic traffic in the second quarter of 2014 was at about the same level as in the second quarter of 2013, with only 0.9 per cent growth over the period. Thus, most of the first half-year growth rate of 2.6 per cent was in the first quarter.

There were 10.5 million passengers on flights between Norwegian and foreign airports in the first half of 2014. This is 5.3 per cent more than in the first half of 2013. The growth rates for the two quarters making up the first half-year are about the same.
