Traffic at Copenhagen Airport is growing, not just in passenger numbers, but also in air cargo which is up by a substantial margin of six percent. One of the drivers of this growth is DHL, which is expanding its operations and will be hiring an additional 85 employees at the airport. This is yet another sign that the Danish economy is slowly recovering, according to Copenhagen Airport’s CEO Thomas Woldbye.

“August of this year was the busiest ever. The last part of the holiday traffic and not least business traffic both helped boost passenger numbers, and that is a good sign that the Danish economy is recovering and that growth is slowly returning,” said Woldbye.

The same applies to air cargo which was up by 6.2 percent last year – apparently the trend continues with six percent growth already for the first six months of 2013.

“The increased volume of air cargo is a clear indication that growth is picking up; and this is good news for Denmark and Danish business,” said Woldbye.

As CEO of Copenhagen Airport, he sees great potential in the airport’s close collaboration with DHL, which means that Copenhagen will now be the Nordic cargo hub of DHL.
