Copenhagen Airport posts another new record

More than 2.3 million passengers use the airport in September

With more than 2.3 million passengers in September, Copenhagen Airport set its 18th consecutive monthly record. In the first nine months of 2014, almost 20 million passengers travelled through the major European hub.

It is the first time passenger figures for September have passed the 2.3 million barrier. The growth rate was 6.4% from the same month last year.

“If we look to our main competitors, the other European hub airports, we remain in a very comfortable position in terms of growth this year,” said Thomas Woldbye, the airport’s chief executive. “Our stable traffic growth throughout the summer program is part of the reason we have been able to secure one of the highest growth rates in Europe.”

International traffic was up 6.7%, domestic traffic up 3.4%, transfer traffic up 14.5%.

“The major part of the intercontinental traffic out of our region still departs from Copenhagen, and the solid transfer growth therefore strengthens our hub. This is reflected in a 17% rise in passenger numbers on our long-haul services,” Woldbye said.

Just over 19.7 million passengers travelled through CPH in the first nine months of the year, 7.1% more than in the same period last year.
