Copenhagen Airport has another record month for traffic

Copenhagen Airport had its busiest August ever this year as passenger numbers increased 0.7% compared with the same time last year.

Copenhagen Airport had its busiest August ever this year as passenger numbers increased 0.7% compared with the same time last year.


The Scandinavian gateway handled 2,116,128 passengers in August – almost 15,000 more than last year, making it the busiest August ever for the airport.


However the number of operations increased by only 0.1%, meaning that the airlines must have increased their load factors during the month.


The number of international passengers at the gateway was up by 1.8% over the month, whereas both domestic traffic and the number of transfer passengers were down 8.3%.


Overall, 15.2 million passengers used Copenhagen Airport during the first eight months of the year, equivalent to a growth rate of 6.9%.


In July Copenhagen Airport experienced the busiest month in its 86-year history, as passenger numbers reached 2,283,586. 


Carsten Nørland, vice president of sales and marketing at Copenhagen Airport, said: “We have set passenger records in five out of the first eight months of the year, and the prospects for 2011 as a whole are therefore very good, and it is still too early to speculate on whether the recent international financial turmoil will dampen growth in the coming period.”
