CPH: Good start to the summer
Traffic continues to grow at Copenhagen Airport. June was the busiest month in the airport's history, as passenger numbers reached 2,523,108, representing an 8.3% year-on-year increase.
The busiest month in the history of Copenhagen Airport also included the busiest travel day ever. On Friday, 27 June, 98,674 passengers travelled through the airport, 4,000 more than the previous record set in Easter 2014.
"With almost 100,000 passengers passing through the airport in one day, it goes without saying that things were more than just busy in the terminals. 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," said Copenhagen Airport CEO Thomas Woldbye.
International traffic grew by 8.5%, and the number of transfer passengers was up by 19.4% – a remarkably strong increase in a summer month, when many leisure travellers normally prefer point-to-point flights. Domestic traffic was up by 5.9%.
