Copenhagen Airport has set passenger records in ten out of the first eleven months this year. According to the operator, key growth drivers continue to be international and transfer traffic. Intercontinental traffic also continued to grow, while domestic traffic has stabilised.
The top 10 destinations from Copenhagen airport in 2012 were (locations appear in list order): London, Stockholm, Oslo, Aalborg, Amsterdam, Paris, Helsinki, Berlin, Frankfurt, Bruxelles.
“The volume of domestic traffic remains significantly lower than in the record year of 2011,” said Thomas Woldbye, CEO of Copenhagen Airport.
“We have therefore intensified our partnership with the other Danish airports and the airlines to develop Danish domestic air traffic. Our goal is to build a demand for more frequencies on the various routes.”
With a total of 21.7 million passengers in the first eleven months of the year, Copenhagen is 1 million passengers short of setting new full-year record.
