Copenhagen Airport: "While travel activity was higher than ever among Danes and other northern Europeans this summer, the
passenger numbers for August were also an indication of an interesting trend. School holidays falling later meant an increase in leisure travellers in August. Business travellers, and consequently transfer traffic, also returned from the holidays later than in previous years, and these changes were reflected in the traffic figures,” Carsten Nørland, VP sales and market.
