Copenhagen Airport breaks more records

First time CPH sees more than 20mn pax in first nine months
Copenhagen Airport has set a new passenger record, seeing 5.5% more travellers in the third quarter. The full-year passenger growth for the first nine months was 2%, leading to 3.5% growth in revenue and a 4.7% improvement in profit before tax to DKK 1,083.8 million (€145.3 million).
Based on the strong summer performance, CPH expects to end the year at the high end, or possibly above, its guidance announced in August.
In Q3, Copenhagen Airport had more than 7.7 million passengers, or 5.5% year-on-year. In the nine months to the end of September, 20.1 million passengers travelled through, up 2%.
This is the first time the airport has had more than 20 million passengers during the first nine months of the year.
The full-year effect of intercontinental routes that were opened last year and additional frequencies added to already existing long-haul routes this year resulted in a 2.6% increase in international passengers in the first nine months, with intercontinental traffic growing 1.8%.
The proportion of transfer passengers stabilised in Q3 with a recovery in the number of passengers SAS transfers through CPH. But the number of transfer passengers fell by 8% in the first nine months.
Domestic traffic to Rønne and Karup increased, but lower capacity to other airports including Aalborg resulted in an overall decline of 5.1%.
