Three new international routes will be introduced from the airport to compensate for the declining numbers of domestic passengers, Sydsvenskan reports.
As well as Berlin, the other two destinations on the cards are Split in Croatia and Pristina in Kosovo.
“There may be more. We are working on it intensively,” Peter Weinhandl, head of Malmö Airport, told the newspaper.
Last year 50,000 fewer travellers took domestic flights from the airport, a reduction of ten percent.
It is currently possible to fly to 23 overseas destinations direct from Malmö, including Belgrad, Budapest, Krakow and Warsaw.
Factors including flight tax and concern over climate change have led to a reduction in passenger numbers taking domestic flights in Sweden, and above all it's the smallest airports that have been most severely affected.

Is this really news? I mean I can’t imagine seeing this front page of most other news sites. It should be titled Mälmo Airport to Introduce 3 new European routes, made me think I could fly to Australia direct.
