CPH set to beat 2008 passenger record

Passenger numbers at airport increased by 4.3% in November

Passenger numbers at Copenhagen Airport increased by 4.3% in November (1,761,409 for the month), making it the eighth monthly record this year. This further strengthens its position as Northern Europe’s major traffic hub. The annual passenger record from 2008 is about to be broken. By the start of December, CPH was only 400,000 passengers from beating the 2008 record.
However, the figures are slowing; the year-to-date growth rate is 5.7%. The number of international passengers rose by 6% and there were 9.6% more transfer passengers during the month. But domestic traffic was down by 7.2% due to a reduction in capacity and number of frequencies to various Danish destinations.
The airport commented that “transfer traffic contributed to the growth. […] Traffic grew from all of the six major feeder airports, i.e. from Stockholm, Oslo, Gothenburg, Stavanger, Bergen and Helsinki, with the latter showing the highest growth rate thanks to the airline Blue1, which has increased its traffic on the Finnish capital.”
