Copenhagen Airport set for summer of ‘intense travel activity’


Copenhagen Airport claims that it is expecting a “summer of intense travel activity” following a busy June, which saw 2.8 million passengers pass through its facilities.

The Danish gateway’s optimism is based on the fact that the total was was 12% up on the same month a year ago, with June the first month of its summer season.

“We have already registered 16 days with more than 100,000 passengers at the airport – whereas this only happened a total of three days last year,” a statement notes.

Peter Krogsgaard, chief commercial officer at Copenhagen Airports A/S, says: “Summer is our absolute peak season and, every day, the entire airport is teaming with life and happy travellers.

“A lot of these are holidaymakers from Denmark and southern Sweden, of course, but many tourists are also flying in to the airport to visit Copenhagen and the rest of Denmark.”

Nearly 300 routes out of Copenhagen this summer

This summer, there are as many as 293 routes from Copenhagen to 163 different destinations. They include 34 new routes opened so far this year, and several airlines have increased the number of frequencies on existing routes.

In June alone, two new routes opened between Copenhagen and the United States. American Airlines, one of the world’s largest airlines, is now operating a route with a daily service from Copenhagen Airport to Philadelphia, and SAS has opened its new daily service to Atlanta.

“This is a good and busy summer season for Copenhagen Airport, and we are very pleased that both airlines and passengers are choosing Copenhagen,” says Krogsgaard.

“This demonstrates that we are an attractive and efficient airport with a strong route network, whether you are travelling to European destinations or further afield.”
