Copenhagen Airport sets another passenger record
Judging by its passenger numbers, 2014 is shaping up to be a record year for Copenhagen Airport. September is the 18th month in a row that the airport has set a passenger number record.
The airport set passenger records in June and again in July, and now it has revealed that the over 2.3 million passengers who travelled via the airport last month is a September record and a 6.4 increase compared to September last year.
“When we look at our main competition, the other European hub airports, we are once again doing really well this year,” Thomas Woldbye, the CEO of Copenhagen Airport, said in a press release.
“A stable traffic growth rate throughout the summer programme has helped us to achieve one of the highest growth rates in Europe.”
Huge improvements from last year
The number of passengers transferring to other flights at Copenhagen increased by 14.5 percent compared to last September, while international and domestic flights also rose – by 6.7 percent and 3.4 percent respectively.
Woldbye also revealed that the main portion of intercontinental flights from the region departed from Copenhagen Airport, which was reflected in the long-distance flight passenger figures increasing by 17 percent compared to last year.
So far in 2014, about 19.7 million passengers have travelled through Copenhagen Airport – 1.3 million more than in 2013 – which constitutes growth of over seven percent.
