CPH Airport was last year’s winner in terms of growth compared to other Nordic major airports, but in January 2017, it saw the lowest year-on-year increase.

Although it expanded its passenger capacity by 9.2 percent in 2016, welcoming over 29 million passengers for the first time, its January numbers rose by just 5.6 percent.

The main airports in Stockholm (13.3 percent – up 5.6 percentage points on last year), Oslo (10.9), Helsinki (9.4) and Reykjavik (70) all enjoyed healthier growth.

Reykjavik’s significant growth was attributed to the growth of flights to North America on low-budget airlines like Icelandair and WOW Air.
