The exact total at the Nordic region’s busiest gateway was 25,627,093, which was not only a record, but also the first year more than 25 million passengers travelled through the airport.
The position as a key northern European transport hub was also strengthened by a 12.6% increase in transfer traffic in 2014, while International traffic was up by 6.8% for the full year, and domestic passengers rose 2.3%.
The highest growth rates in transfer traffic were on the important feeder routes from Stockholm, Oslo and Bergen.
Thomas Woldbye, CEO of Copenhagen Airports A/S, says: “International traffic was the main growth driver throughout the year, so we have continued to strengthen our position as an international hub, which was especially underpinned by the fact that traffic on our 27 intercontinental routes grew by a total of 8% in 2014.”
In December alone, passenger traffic grew by 3%, transfer traffic rose by 2.3%, with international traffic increasing 3.7%, and domestic down 4%, due to lower capacity on the routes to Aalborg, Billund and Karup.
