Many people travel abroad for their summer holidays, and that shows at Copenhagen Airport, as the number of international passengers rose by 4.4% year on year in June.

The new, more light and spacious terminal area has 12 new check-in desks and a large number of additional self-service kiosks,” said Thomas Woldbye, CEO of Copenhagen Airport.

Domestic traffic increased by as much as 10.2%. This brought the total year-on-year increase in passenger numbers to 4.8% in June.
