The airport set a new passenger record for the fifth successive year in 2015, with more than 26.6 million passengers.

CPH reports that international passenger growth was a primary driver for growth, with the introduction of new long-haul routes, strengthening its position as an international hub in Northern Europe and intensifying its competition with the major European airports.
