The number of passengers on domestic flights increased by 50 per cent and on international flights by 86 per cent compared to February 2022.

The number of passengers was 75 per cent of the level prior to the corona pandemic.

Seventy-two per cent of the passengers travelled on international flights and 28 per cent on domestic flights.

In February 2023, a total of 1.1 million passengers flew through Helsinki Airport and altogether 0,3 million passengers flew through other domestic airports.

Helsinki Airport accounted for 76 per cent of all passengers at domestic airports.

Compared to February 2022, the number of passengers was 80 per cent higher at Helsinki Airport and 58 per cent higher at other domestic airports.

In February, 72 per cent of the air passengers travelled on international flights and 28 per cent on domestic flights.
