Growth continues at Copenhagen Airport
With 2.3 million passengers in September Copenhagen Airport set its 18th consecutive monthly record. In the first nine months of 2014, almost 20 million passengers travelled through the largest airport in the Nordic region.
2,339,515. That's how many passengers travelled through Copenhagen Airport in September, marking the first time passenger numbers for September has reached 2.3 million. The growth rate was 6.4% on the same month of last year.
If we look to our main competitors, the other European hub airports, we remain in a very comfortable position in terms of growth this year. Our stable traffic growth throughout the summer programme is part of the reason that we have been able to secure one of the highest growth rates in Europe,” said Thomas Woldbye, CEO of Copenhagen Airports A/S.
International traffic was up 6.7%, domestic traffic 3.4% and the important transfer traffic was up 14.5%.
The major part of the intercontinental traffic out of our region still departs from Copenhagen, and the solid transfer growth therefore strengthens our hub. This is reflected in a 17.0% rise in passenger numbers on our long-haul services,” explained Thomas Woldbye.
Year to date, just over 19.7 million passengers have travelled through Copenhagen Airport. This is 1,312,157, or 7.1% more passengers than the same period last year.
