Copenhagen Airport announces record passenger numbers for Q3

Copenhagen Airport in Denmark announced that 7.7 million passengers passed through its terminals in the third quarter (Q3) of 2015, a 5.5% increase over Q3 the previous year and a new record.

The increase has also meant that for the first time its history, the airport has served more than 20 million passengers in the first nine months of a year. The increase in passengers has led to a rise in revenue of 3.5% when compared to the first nine months of 2014, while pre-tax profit was also up by 4.7% to Dkr 1bn (US$146m).

Thomas Woldbye, CEO of Copenhagen Airports, the airport operator, said, “We have seen strong passenger growth during the summer. As a result, more foreign tourists than ever before flew to Copenhagen this summer, benefiting the economic growth of Denmark.

“Both SAS and Norwegian have announced new long-haul routes to be opened in the near future, helping us to almost double the number of intercontinental routes out of Copenhagen in six to seven years, strengthening the connections from Denmark and southern Sweden to key international markets.

“It is important that we can continue to make our non-aeronautical offering more attractive. First of all, because it boosts passenger satisfaction, and secondly because our non-aeronautical earnings help ensure that we can maintain our high level of capital investment, especially in the aeronautical part of our business.”
