Growth committee

Growth Committee brings together powerful players in order to strengthen the CPH in the fierce international competition with other airports and regions.

The committee identifies ideas and concrete initiatives that can ensure continued route growth and improvement of the international accessibility. CPH is an engine for development and jobs across Denmark and southern Sweden, and this is why Growth Committee is composed of influential individuals from both Denmark and Sweden.

The committee is established in line with the recommendations of the Transport Minister's Aviation Committee, which in 2012 proposed to strengthen cooperation among the external stakeholders hub at CPH through a "stakeholder committee".

CPH's Growth Committee meets two or three times a year. The members do not receive fees for their work in CPH's Growth Committee.
