About the statistics

The statistics are intended to paint a comprehensive picture of the civil aviation sector and its evolution. They are compiled by the Swedish Transport Agency at the behest of Transport Analysis.

The scope of the survey

The aviation data cover all Swedish commercial airports at which civil aviation is carried out in the form of regularly scheduled and/or charter service−airports owned by the government, the municipalities or private companies.

The tables showing registered aircraft are based on the Swedish Transport Agency's register.

The accident data include accidents involving Swedish-registered motorized aircraft, plus accidents in Sweden regardless of the nationality of the aircraft.
