the Most Efficient Airport in Europe

2015.07.08

Copenhagen Airport has been rated the most efficient airport in Europe for the eighth time in ten years by the Air Transport Research Society.

Danish Airports

The Danish capital has "Europe's most efficient airport" according to the Air Transport Research Society (ATRS) consisting of professors and aviation experts from universities worldwide who have developed a method for comparing airport efficiency.

"We see the rating as Europe's most efficient airport as recognition of our efforts to strengthen our position as the key hub of northern Europe. Denmark has many more airline routes than the size of our country and population would otherwise warrant. This is because Copenhagen Airport is an efficient hub and gateway to other world destinations for passengers from the entire Nordic region, the Baltic states, Poland, northern Germany and northern UK. Consequently, it is essential that we continue to develop Copenhagen Airport, and that we continue to reduce our customers' costs of operation," said Copenhagen Airport's CEO Thomas Woldbye.

Efficient and Competitive

Copenhagen Airport was a first mover when self-service kiosks were introduced about a decade ago, and there are now 99 check-in kiosks at the airport, and more than 50% of passengers today check in at the kiosks.

Earlier this year, Copenhagen Airport also introduced self-service boarding-pass scanners before security screening, and they will later be introduced at the gates as well. Last, but not least, Copenhagen Airport will introduce self-service bag-drops later in the year.

"All these initiatives will help increase efficiency, lower our customers' costs of operation and increase customer satisfaction levels. That is why they are also a key part of our strategy," said Thomas Woldbye.

Copenhagen Airport is a key northern European transport hub with a total 25 million passengers travelling through the airport in 2014.
