Copenhagen Airport’s February passenger traffic rose by 5.5% to 1.5m passengers compared with February 2010, with international traffic driving growth. Domestic traffic finished the month 0.3% above February last year, while international numbers rose by 10.1%.
International traffic growth was driven by new intercontinental routes launched in 2010, as well as by increased competition and greater capacity on routes to Paris, Amsterdam, and Frankfurt.
Growth was moderated by a decline in traffic to the Middle East, as a result of the unrest in the region. Charter traffic to Egypt, which is a popular destination at this time of year, was down 98% in February.
