CPH: Growth in line with expectations
Traffic at Copenhagen Airport rose by 2.4% in November, which was in line with expectations. The year-to-date increase in passenger numbers was 6.7%.
A total of 1,844,627 passengers travelled through Copenhagen Airport in November, representing a 2.4% year-on-year increase. This was consistent with CPH's expectations of growth slowing slightly with the transition to the winter programme.
The number of seats in this year's winter programme is largely identical to last year, so we have known for some time that the growth rates would slow down a bit in the last two months of the year,” said Thomas Woldbye, CEO of Copenhagen Airports A/S. “Nevertheless, the indications are that 2014 overall will be a good year for Copenhagen Airport with an all-time passenger record of more than 25 million passengers.”
International traffic grew by 3.3%, the number of transfer passengers grew by 1.5% and the number of passengers on intercontinental routes grew by 7.3%. Due to a decline in the number of seats available on several domestic destinations, domestic traffic decreased by 5.9%.
The total number of passengers at Copenhagen Airport year-to-date is 23.9 million, which is an increase of more than 1.5 million passengers, or 6.7%, compared with the same time last year.
