Copenhagen Airport no. 1 at route development

At the world's leading aviation conference, World Routes 2015, airlines from all over the world have rated Copenhagen Airport the world's best at route development for the second time in three years.

Copenhagen Airport won the award as the world's best at route development in the category 'airports between 20 and 50 million passengers' at the World Routes conference 2015 in Durban, outdoing the airports in Abu Dhabi, Brussels, Dublin, Munich and Vienna.

Rated by airlines

Created in 1997, the annual Routes Awards provide the airline community with the chance to have their say as to which airport they think provides the best overall marketing services to them.

“This award is particularly valuable because the airlines do the rating. In addition to offering the most intercontinental, European, Scandinavian and Baltic connections of all the Scandinavian airports, the award is an indication that the airlines consider proposals for the development of new and existing routes to be useful,” says Claus Lønborg, CEO, Copenhagen Capacity.

Air routes generate growth

An international air route has an economic value of up to DKK 200 million, because it attracts more business and leisure travellers to the country, according to Copenhagen Economics.

The World Routes conference is an annual event at which some 2,500 delegates from 250 airlines, 650 airports and 170 tourism organisations worldwide meet to discuss the development of new air routes.
