Number of passengers at Finnish airports by month in 2020 to 2022

In February 2022, the number of passengers at Helsinki Airport was 59 per cent lower and the combined number of passengers at other domestic airports 49 per cent lower than in February 2020. Compared with February 2021, the number of passengers at both Helsinki Airport and other domestic airports was multiple times higher. The exceptionally high relative growth in the number of passengers compared to last year is caused by the collapse of air traffic due to the COVID-19 pandemic starting from spring 2020.

Sixty-seven per cent of air traffic passengers were from international flights and 33 per cent from domestic flights. The share of passengers on international flights was 78 per cent at Helsinki Airport and 37 per cent in total at other domestic airports.

In February 2022, air freight and mail transport totalled 16,990 tonnes, which was 42 per cent more than one year earlier. In total, 98 per cent of the tonnes were transported through Helsinki Airport and 99.7 per cent in traffic between Finland and foreign countries. Altogether 9,463 tonnes of the transported volume of goods were outgoing and 7,527 tonnes incoming.
