According to the airport’s annual financial statements, published on March 01, on an average day, some 79,939 passengers passed through Copenhagen Airport to fly on one of over 160 routes connecting the Nordic region’s largest airport with the world. Overall, more than 29.2 million passengers flew to and from Copenhagen, representing a 0.5 percent increase on 2016.
“In 2016, we had particularly high growth of almost 10 percent, so it was to be expected that 2017 would be more subdued,” commented, Thomas Woldbye, CEO, Copenhagen Airport.
In recent years, the airport has focused on attracting new long-haul routes, with new direct routes to New Delhi, India and Agadir, Morocco being among those to open.
In 2017, the number of passengers on long-haul routes grew by six percent, with 3,252,581 passengers flying on one of 36 intercontinental routes. The number of international tourists flying to Denmark via the airport surpassed 3.5 million, around 23 percent up on 2016.
