With nearly 2.6 million passengers walking through its terminals, the month of July was the busiest in the 90-year history of Copenhagen Airport.

Passenger figures are seven percent higher that July of last year and passenger figures have increased by 7.3 percent thus far this year.

“Our traffic figures show that, apparently, people's desire to travel remained intact despite the fantastic summer weather in Denmark. This made July the busiest month ever in the almost 90 years' history of Copenhagen Airport," Thomas Woldbye, the head of Copenhagen Airport, said in a statement.

Passenger progress was made on a host of fronts. Traffic abroad increased by 7.4 percent, national traffic by 1.1 percent, charter traffic by 0.9 percent and transfer traffic – passengers who have stop-overs before flying on – shot up by a considerable 14.9 percent.

“The increase shows that our focused collaboration with the airlines to strengthen the hub is successful," Woldbye said.

This year, from January 1 to July 31, almost 15 million passengers have chosen in Copenhagen Airport.

The top ten destinations last month were London, Oslo, Stockholm, Paris, Helsinki, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Berlin, Aalborg and Palma.
