  • SWEDISH state-owned railway operator SJ reported an 11pc rise in 2019 passenger traffic on Thursday, saying concerns over the environmental impact of air travel have contributed to the spike.
  • Fritzson listed improvements in booking and payment services, and punctuality as other factors which helped the railway boost traffic and win market share from airlines on important domestic routes, such as the one linking Stockholm with Malmo, Sweden’s third-largest city.
