Copenhagen Airport: "Transfer traffic is increasing, thanks not least to Blue1’s use of Copenhagen Airport as its hub rather than Helsinki. The number of international passengers is also increasing steadily. The continuing growth means that we have been one of the fastest growing hub airports in Europe in the early months of this year," Carsten Nørland, VP Sales & Marketing.
