Copenhagen Airport in Denmark served 2,749,404 passengers in August 2016, a 6.7% increase when compared with the same month the year before. This included a 7.8% increase in long-haul traffic to international destinations.
Thomas Woldbye, CEO, Copenhagen Airport, said, “Copenhagen Airport is an international hub, and in this context, long-haul intercontinental routes play a key role. We have in recent years worked intensely on attracting new routes, especially to North America and Asia, because intercontinental routes help strengthen Copenhagen Airport’s position as a hub that travelers from all over northern Europe use to connect to flights to the rest of the world.
“The long-haul routes are used not just by Danish leisure and business travelers, but to a great extent also by incoming leisure and business passengers, for instance from the USA.”
Year-to-date traffic at Copenhagen Airport was up by 10.2%, as a total of 19,442,478 passengers passed through the airport in the first eight months of 2016.
