22.4 million passengers traveled through Avinor’s airports in 2021 – an increase of 10% compared to 2020.

Bergen Airport Flesland registered the largest growth last year, Avinor wrote in a press release on Monday. 3.2 million passengers traveled through the airport in 2021, compared with 2.7 million the year before.

“During the summer and autumn seasons, we saw an increase in travel activity as a result of increased vaccination rates and easing of travel restrictions. 

“The activity decreased towards Christmas when new restrictions were introduced as a result of the omicron outbreak,” Avinor chief Abraham Foss stated.

Although Avinor registered an increase in passenger traffic in 2021 compared to 2020, the level of activity is still far below what it was before the pandemic. 

Measured against 2019, the decline in total passenger traffic for 2021 amounts to 59%.
