CPH among Europe’s fastest growing airports

Nordic hub sees 13.2% increase during first three months
The first three months of 2016 have been boom-time for Copenhagen Airport, making it the fourth-fastest growing airport in Europe, according to new figures from ACI Europe. The airport saw a 13.2% rise in passengers during the period.
“The growth is naturally down to the Danes travelling more, but there are also many more travellers from abroad coming to Denmark,” Peter Krogsgaard, the Danish hub’s commercial chief, said.
“We can see considerable growth in the number of tourists and business travellers coming to Copenhagen. It’s helping to generate growth and jobs across Denmark.”
ACI Europe divides airports into several sizes. Among the large airports in Europe, Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen Airport saw the fastest growth during the first quarter of 2016, at 19.5%, followed by Dublin (17.5%), Barcelona-El Prat (16.1%), and Copenhagen, then Amsterdam Schiphol (12.4%).
Europe’s airports enjoyed average passenger growth of 7.8%, while the EU nations saw an 8.2% increase.
