Copenhagen Airport was able to overcome a number of airline bankruptcies in 2012 to set a new passenger record last year, with 23.3 million people passing through the Danish hub.

Passenger numbers rose by +2.7% year-on-year, with international traffic driving growth, up +5.3%. The airport also attributed the overall growth to an increase in the number of transfer passengers.

The new record was set despite the fact take-offs and landings were down -4.2% in 2012, meaning airlines had better load factors and used larger aircraft.
