One million passenger increase in Copenhagen Airport
14 January 2016
More than 26.6 million passengers travelled through Copenhagen Airport in 2015, which is one million or 3.8% more than in 2014. The rise is owing to increasing passenger numbers on long-haul routes and more people travelling to Denmark from the rest of the world.
In 2015, more than 26.6 million people travelled to and from Copenhagen Airport, a growth rate of 3.8% compared to 2014.
According to Copenhagen Airport, the number of long-haul routes into and out of Copenhagen has doubled in the past decade. In 2015, five new intercontinental destinations were added to the route map, including non-stop routes to destinations such as Las Vegas, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
Additional intercontinental routes to Miami, Boston and other destinations will follow in 2016.
Copenhagen ideal for Nordic and European headquarters
“More routes mean better global market coverage. Copenhagen Airport is the most well-connected airport in Scandinavia, and the new long-haul routes support this position further. Owing to the region’s strong infrastructure, highly competitive business costs and large talent pool, Greater Copenhagen is the ideal location for a Nordic or European headquarters”, says Claus Lønborg, CEO, Copenhagen Capacity, who assists international companies, investors and talent in making a successful start in Greater Copenhagen.
In the coming years, Copenhagen Airport will expand the airport to accommodate 40 million travellers per year.
