One in Four Flights Delayed
The daily ”Svenska Dagbladet” reports that one in every four international flights departing from Stockholm’s Arlanda airport is delayed.
An increase of passengers, as well as tougher security, is believed to be the problem.
The newspaper also reports that since 2000, the number of complaints about delays that has come into the Swedish National Board for Consumer Complaints has tripled, and that this year alone 353 complaints have been filed.
Despite delays, Niclas Härenstam of the Swedish Civil Aviation Authority says airports in the Nordic region are better in maintaining timetables than in other regions. He did however tell ”Svenska Dagbladet” that delays in other countries can strongly affect timetables at Arlanda.
