June was the busiest month in Copenhagen Airport’s history, the company wrote in a press release today. More than 2.5 million passengers used the airport, representing an 8.3 percent increase on last year.

June 27 was also the busiest travel day on record for the airport with over 98,000 passengers – 4,000 more than the previous record set during Easter this year.

Thomas Woldbye, the airport’s CEO, said that the record traffic had pushed the facilities, but that recent improvement projects had paid off. ”Thanks to our large-scale conversion and expansion of Terminal 2 and the baggage facilities in the last few years, we have been able to absorb the growth and give the many travellers a good start to their holidays," he said in the press release.

International traffic grew by 8.5 percent, transfers were up by a massive 19.4 percent and domestic traffic grew by 5.9 percent.
