CPH: Strong growth in September
Copenhagen Airport set a new record for the month of September at almost 2.5 million passengers, equal to a growth rate of 6.1%. This is the first time Copenhagen Airport has topped the 20 million passenger mark after the first nine months of the year.
A total of 2,481,528 passengers passed through Copenhagen Airport in September, which was 142,013, or 6.1%, more than in September of last year.
“We had a strong month in September, with traffic growing on both long-haul and European routes. More routes and higher frequencies mean we are able to attract more tourists and business travellers to Denmark, and the number of incoming travellers has increased. It also makes the world’s markets even more accessible for the business community. This is essential for creating growth and jobs throughout Denmark,” said Thomas Woldbye, CEO of Copenhagen Airports A/S.
European traffic was up by 7.0%, and international traffic was up by 4.4% in September. Domestic traffic fell by 3.3% due to a drop in capacity, including on the largest domestic route to Aalborg. Transfer traffic fell by 2.3%.
Passenger numbers are up by 2.0% for the year to date and for the first time ever, Copenhagen Airports had more than 20 million passengers after the first nine months of the year. A total of 20,131,005 passengers have passed through Copenhagen Airport in the nine months to 30 September 2015.
