LFV on track to handle more than 700,000 air traffic movements in 2011
Air traffic movements in Northern Europe continue to recover at a better than expected rate, with Swedish air navigation service provider (ANSP) LFV raising its full year outlook for aircraft movements, even at this late point in the year. The ANSP now expects over 705,000 aircraft movements in Swedish airspace for 2011, including domestic and international flights and overflights.
For the year to the end of Oct-2011, LFV has handled 596,000 flights, an increase of around 9%. The high levels of growth experienced during the beginning of the year have waned through the second half of 2011. Aircraft movements in Oct-2011 were up only 5% year-on-year, with overflight and international aircraft movements both up 6% and domestic flights up 2%. [958 words]
