CPH heading for passenger record
Passenger numbers at Copenhagen Airport rose by 0.1% in November. Year-to-date, passenger numbers are up by 3.0%, which means that CPH is headed towards a passenger record for the year.
In November, Copenhagen Airport's passenger numbers reached 1.8 million for the first time ever. With one extra Saturday in the month compared to last year, the rise in passenger numbers was just 0.1% as far fewer people travel on Saturdays than on other days of the week this time of year.
"With a 3.0% total increase in passenger numbers for the first 11 months of the year Copenhagen Airport is staying firmly on the path of growth. We are very pleased that our strategy allows us to generate higher growth than most other European hubs”, said Thomas Woldbye, CEO of Copenhagen Airports A/S.
International traffic grew by 0.4% while domestic and transfer traffic was down by 3.1% and 3.6%, respectively. Year to date, 22.4 million passengers have travelled through Copenhagen Airport's terminals, which represents a 3.0% increase over the same period of 2012. With this, it is all but certain that Copenhagen Airport will set a new passenger record this year, last year's record being 23.3 million travellers.
