Copenhagen sees traffic improvement

By Administrator |

Just over 1.8m passengers travelled through Copenhagen Airport in October 2009 and airport management says that while this still represented a 2.7% year-on-year decline, the rate of monthly declines is slowing.

The year-to-date rate of decline was 10.1% while domestic traffic continued to grow by 9.1% in October. International traffic was down by 4% for the month.

‘The 2.7% drop in passenger numbers made October the best month so far this year for Copenhagen Airport,’ said Carsten N?rland, VP, Sales, Copenhagen Airports.

‘However, the moderate decline should be seen in light of the fact that it was in October 2008 the consequences of the global financial crisis really began to feed through to passenger numbers. When this is taken into account, performance in October of this year was more or less on a level with the previous four months, which was in line with our expectations.’

Airport management says that the number of passengers has now stabilised after the double-digit declines recorded earlier in the year. Domestic traffic increased for the fourth consecutive month: the growth rate for October was 9.1%, the highest so far this year. The main reason was the increased competition on the Copenhagen-Aalborg route.’
