Copenhagen reports strong pax traffic growth

Denmark’s Copenhagen Airport reports 12.3% growth in pax traffic – traffic highlights in Sep-2010:

  • Passenger numbers: 2.0 million, +12.3%;
    • Domestic: 232,690, +20.4%;
    • International: 1.8 million, +11.4%;
  • Aircraft movements: 22,442, +6.8%. [more]

Copenhagen Airports: “September was the fourth consecutive month of record-high passenger numbers, and after three months of summer with a clear majority of leisure passengers, September is typically a month when business travel picks up again after the holiday season.  In our view the figures support that business passenger growth is continuing … The number of transfer passengers increased on a large number of routes, including Oslo and Stockholm, due both to our efforts to improve our transfer product and to the fact that SAS has again concentrated a large part of its traffic at Copenhagen Airport. Moreover, a number of northern European and Baltic destinations contributed substantial increases in the number of transfer passengers, all of which helps support our position as a northern European hub” Carsten Nørland, VP Sales.
