Busiest month ever at Copenhagen Airport
Copenhagen Airport set a remarkable passenger record in July with 2.6 million travellers – a 7.0% year-on-year increase. The year-to-date increase in passenger numbers was 7.3%.
"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," said Copenhagen Airport's CEO Thomas Woldbye.
The exact passenger number in July ended up at 2,596,230, almost 170,000 more than in July of last year. International traffic was up by 7.4%, domestic traffic by 1.1%, and charter traffic by 0.9%. Transfer traffic continued recent months' positive performance, increasing by an impressive 14.9%.
"The increase shows that our focused collaboration with the airlines to strengthen the hub is successful," said Woldbye.
Overall, 14,952,229 passengers used Copenhagen Airport during the first seven months of the year, just over 1 million more than at the same time last year, equivalent to a growth rate of 7.3%.
