Domestic traffic at Norwegian airports in week 31 was 36 per cent lower than the same week last year, while international traffic was as much as 83 per cent lower.
In total, the decrease in week 31 is 61 per cent compared to the same week in 2019, preliminary traffic figures from Avinor show. For week 30, the figure was 62 per cent lower.
In week 31, which was last week, 392,252 passengers flew from airports in Norway. That is over 38,000 fewer than the week before, and over 660,000 fewer than in the same week in 2019.
At the lowest, in week 15, there were 95 per cent fewer passengers traveling through Norwegian airports compared with the previous year. Since then, traffic has gradually increased.
Of the ten largest airports in Norway, Oslo Airport Gardermoen has had the largest decline. The main airport had 195,437 passengers in week 31, which is 68 per cent fewer than the same week last year.
Stavanger Sola had 66 per cent fewer passengers and Bergen Flesland 62 per cent fewer in week 31.
