Copenhagen Airport Reports Continuing Record Growth

    Copenhagen Airport (CPH) has released its annual report for 2015, showing record passenger numbers and solid earnings for the year.

    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.
