CPH sets new passenger traffic record in July

By Charlotte Turner |

Copenhagen Airport set another passenger record in July with 2.6m travellers – a 7% year-on-year increase. The year-to-date increase in passenger numbers was 7.3%.


“Our traffic figures show that, apparently, people’s desire to travel remained intact despite the fantastic summer weather in Denmark,” said Copenhagen Airport’s CEO Thomas Woldbye. “This made July the busiest month ever in the almost 90 years’ history of Copenhagen Airport.”


“The increase shows that our focused collaboration with the airlines to strengthen the hub is successful.”


The exact passenger number in July ended up at 2,596,230, almost 170,000 more than in July of last year. International traffic was up by 7.4%, domestic traffic by 1.1%, and charter traffic by 0.9%. Transfer traffic continued recent months’ positive performance, increasing by an impressive 14.9%.


Overall, 14,952,229 passengers used Copenhagen Airport during the first seven months of the year, just over 1 million more than at the same time last year, equivalent to a growth rate of 7.3%.
