Traffic continues to boom at Copenhagen Airport

Copenhagen Airport is flying towards a record after 2.3 million passengers passed through the gateway in October, an increase on the same month in 2013 of 7.1%.

The year-to-date passenger numbers are up 7.1%, and the Danish airport says it is heading towards a new traffic record for the year.

Traveller numbers for October reached 2,330,985, making this the busiest October in the airport's almost 90-year history.

Thomas Woldbye, CEO of Copenhagen Airports A/S, says: “Things will have to go very wrong for us not to reach another passenger record this year. Moreover, our growth rate is high compared with our peers among the major European airports.

“This growth benefits not only the airport, but Danish society as a whole because it draws more tourists, more investment and more jobs.”

International traffic was up by 7.6%, transfer traffic by an impressive 14.9%, and domestic traffic by 1% year-on-year.

Year-to-date passenger numbers have increased by 7.1% to 22.1 million, and if performance during the rest of the year continues as expected, Copenhagen will pass the 25 million passenger mark for the first time in 2014.
