Well, lets hope for the best...Perhaps the new low-cost "terminal" will help?

To free up terminal space for Air India? Yes, maybe, but I'm thinking the intercontinental pier (C?) is already really crowded today-- maybe it needs to be expanded now that CPH is getting many new IC routes from a various array of airlines.

Strong growth at Copenhagen Airport
Passenger numbers at Copenhagen Airport increased by approximately 260,000 in March, representing a year-on-year growth rate of 17.2%. The effects of the joint initiatives by CPH and SAS to improve the transfer product really began to materialise in March.

A total of 1,775,794 passengers passed through Copenhagen Airport in March. This was 17.2% more than in the same month of last year. The number of international passengers rose by 15.0%, and the number of transfer passengers rose by 11.4%. One of the reasons for the increase in transfer traffic was the recently announced strategic collaboration between SAS and CPH to reduce the minimum connection time from 40 to 30 minutes for a number of selected destinations.

“It is now faster and easier to change flights at Copenhagen Airport, and the increase in transfer traffic is a clear sign that our collaboration with SAS to improve our transfer product has been successful,” said Carsten Nørland, VP for Sales at Copenhagen Airport.

The substantial growth in Danish domestic traffic also continued in March increasing by 34.7%. The main drivers of the growth in March were primarily domestic services to Aalborg, Rønne and Karup and services to Barcelona, Spain. The year-to-date increase in the total number of passengers was 11.4%.

You might find some numbers here (download at the Excel document) – the cargo numbers are listed in the sheet "Movements". I don't know if that's what you meant?...

It usually means not applicable, or sometimes not available.

There's a few cargo numbers listed in the Excel document if you flip to the sheet "Movements"...

I was thinking more of perhaps lowering prices for the other flights or perhaps they could fly from Swift.

Askesky rammer Danmark kl. 14:00
15. apr. 2010 11.05 Udland
I eftermiddag rammer askeskyen fra det islandske vulkanudbrud Danmark. Og i følge seniormeterolog ved DMI, Thomas Madsen er der udsigt til, at vi vil have vulkanaske i luften over Danmark de kommede dage.

[IMG]http://i41.************/wtar9z.jpg[/IMG]


- Så længe vulkanen sender aske ud, og så længe vinden har retning syd- øst over mod Danmark, så vil vi opleve, at der er aske i luftrummet over Danmark.

På illustrationen ovenfor kan man se en rød, en grøn og en blå linje tegnet på. De markerer i hvilken højde askenskyen er at finde.

Rød = Fra havoverfladen til 6.5 km højde
Grøn= Fra 6.5 km til 11 km højde
Blå = Fra 11 km til 16.5 km højde

Danske lufthane lukker
Luftrummet i store dele af Nordeuropa er allerede lukket for flyvning, fx Storbritanien nord for London, hele Norge og Nordsverige.

Og askeskyen fra den islandske vulkan påvirker også flytrafikken i Danmark.

Baseret på de seneste meteorologiske prognoser for askeskyens udbredelse, har Naviair, som overvåger det danske luftrum henholdsvis lukket og planlagt at lukke følgende dele af luftrummet fra disse omtrentlige lokale tidspunkter:

Billund: Klokken 12:00
Aalborg: Klokken 14:00
Kastrup: Klokken 17:00

Many flights at CPH and MMX to be canceled due to falling ash from the Icelandic volcano;

Malmö Airport hotas av askan

Sverige.



Den isländska vulkanaskan orsakar kaos i den internationella flygtrafiken. Danmark stänger ikväll sitt luftrum och flygtrafiken till och från Malmö Airport och Kastrup drabbas.



All flygtrafik över Danmark stänger klockan 18 i kväll på grund av vulkanaskan, uppger Ritzau. För delar av Jylland stängs luftrummet redan från klockan 12.

Redan tidigare på morgonen kom besked om att mer än 250 flygningar från London-flygplatserna Heathrow och Gatwick samt flygplatserna i Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast och Newcastle tills vidare stängts på grund av vulkanaskan, rapporterar AFP.

Norska luftfartsmyndigheten meddelar att all flygtrafik till och från Oslos storflygplats Gardermoen ställs in från klockan tio. I norra Sverige stängs luftrum, Finland begränsar flygtrafiken och flygningar från USA till berörda länder ställs in.

– Hela Norge och norra Storbritannien har stängt sin trafik. Prognosen är att vi med stor sannolikhet tvingas utvidga området i Sverige, säger Björn Stenberg vid Luftfartsverkets pressjour till TT.

Flyg till och från Kastrup kommer att påverkas under dagen med inställda flyg som följd. Exakt vilka flyg som påverkas är inte klart i nuläget.

Askmolnet rör sig nu sydost över Sverige. Det skulle kunna innebära att det under torsdagskvällen införs flygförbud över hela Sverige. Det uppger flygvädertjänsten vid Arlanda.

– Prognosen säger att molnet utvidgas. Nu är det inte vi som bestämmer om flygförbud, det gör skiftledarna på trafikkontrollcentralerna. Men risken finns absolut, säger Victor Zereba vid flygvädertjänsten till TT.

Flygtrafiken från och till Malmö airport kommer att drabbas.

– Det är en fråga om när, inte om, säger Susanne Rundström, informatör vid Swedavia.

– Problemen blir större alltefter att dygnet går, säger hon.

Även nordvästra Ryssland rapporteras vara drabbat. I Danmark räknar man med att askmolnet förmörkar tillvaron på delar av Jylland, men flygtrafiken i Köpenhamn är ännu inte i fara.

Askan från vulkanutbrott kan vara förödande för turbinerna i flygplanens jetmotorer. Redan att aska lägger sig på planens vingar kan ställa till med problem.

Det var i går natt som Eyjafjallajökull fick ett nytt utbrott och hundratals hushåll i trakten har evakuerats.

Landvetter flygplats utanför Göteborg planerar för att stoppa all trafik till och från flygplatsen från klockan 14.

"De väderprognoser vi har fått till oss visar på att vårt luftrum kring Göteborg Landvetter Airport kommer att drabbas av askan från det isländska vulkanutbrottet som kan medföra en risk för flygsäkerheten", uppger informationschef Annika Hilmersson i ett pressmeddelande.

Ryanair har ställt in alla avgångar till och från Sverige från klockan 11.30 i dag. Även till och från Norge och Danmark slutar bolaget att flyga tills vidare. Sedan tidigare i dag är alla flygningar till och från Storbritannien och Irland inställda.

Bolagsledningen räknar med att störningarna kommer att fortsätta åtminstone i morgon och förmodligen ännu fler dagar.

I can't believe how quiet it actually is without the planes landing at CPH. I live in one of the major approach paths and normally there are planes passing by at pretty low level all the time. You kind of get used to the noise I guess, because now it seems eerie and quiet.

Flertal i Folketinget for nationalisering af Københavns Lufthavn
Et flertal uden om regeringen er nu parat til at købe Københavns Lufthavne tilbage fra den australske kapitalfond Macquarie Airports Copenhagen.

I går meldte Københavns overborgmester Frank Jensen sig i koret af politikere der ønsker at nationalisere dele af den danske infrastruktur.

»Det vil være en stor fordel, hvis Københavns Lufthavne kommer tilbage på offentlige hænder. Brian Mikkelsen har ret i, at den nuværende ejer ikke har samme interesse i at udvikle lufthavnen, som samfundet har,« siger Frank Jensen.

Og efterfølgende er der kommet fuld opbakning til at nationalisere hele herligheden. Ud over Frank Jensen får forslaget nu støtte fra et flertal af partier også uden om regeringen, skriver Jyllands-Posten.

»Vi skal naturligvis passe på med at lave en politik om, at vi vil købe aktierne tilbage, for så kan de jo bare sætte prisen, som de vil – og så risikerer vi at smide skattekroner ud af vinduet. Men hvis ejerne kunne gå ind i en reel forhandling med staten, vil vi være åbne for det,« siger Dansk Folkepartis finansordfører Kristian Thulesen Dahl til avisen. Også i Socialdemokratiet er de positive over for ideen.

»Ideen om at få den danske stat tilbage som majoritetsejer i en eller anden form er vi positive over for. Derfor er det en god idé at sondere mulighederne for, at staten igen kan påtage sig rollen som majoritetsaktionær,« siger finansordfører i Socialdemokratiet Morten Bødskov til Jyllands-Posten.

Desuden melder Socialistisk Folkeparti også, at et tilbagekøb af aktiemajoriteten er en god ide.

Forslaget møder dog en vis skepsis fra senioranalytiker Jacob Pedersen i Sydbank, der peger på, at et køb af aktierne i Macquarie Airports Copenhagen vil være forbundet med en betydelig præmie til selskabet, der vil fordyre et aktiekøb.

Økonomiminister Brian Mikkelsen ser da heller umiddelbart nogen mulighed for at købe lufthavnen tilbage og peger desuden på, at ideen til privatiseringen skete, mens Frank Jensen selv sad i regeringen.

»Dengang fik vi nok ikke gennemtænkt, hvilke strategiske interesser lufthavnen har for Danmark. Og efterfølgende er der kommet en flykrise og en situation, hvor andre lufthavne truer lufthavnens forretning. Men sket er sket, og der er ikke en julemandskiste med milliarder, der kan købe ting tilbage,« siger han til Jyllands-Posten.

Heller ikke Københavns Lufthavne kaster sig bare fladt ned, men peger på, at der er foretaget betydelige investeringer i blandt andet Københavns Lufthavn.

»Der er foretaget massive investeringer i udbygningen af lufthavnen siden privatiseringen i 1990, og investeringsniveauet pt. er historisk højt. De seneste fem år har vi i gennemsnit investeret over 640 mio. kr. om året, hvilket er 40 pct. mere end i de fem foregående år,« siger kommunikationsdirektør i Københavns Lufthavne Henrik Peter Jørgensen til Jyllands-Posten.

Ash cloud reduced passenger numbers
Passenger numbers at Copenhagen Airport in April were 19.2% lower than in April of last year. The fall was due to the closure of Danish airspace for more than five days as a result of the Icelandic ash cloud. However, Copenhagen Airport was back in full operation in late April, and CPH retains its forecast for the full year.

A total of 1,315,812 passengers passed through Copenhagen Airport in April, which represents a year-on-year decline of 19.2%. The number of locally departing passengers dropped by 21.2%, and the number of transfer passengers dropped by 20.2%. The number of international passengers was down by 20.7%, whilst the number of domestic passengers was down by 4.2%.

The decline in the number of passengers in April was due to the complete closure of the airport for five and a half days in the middle of the month due to the ash cloud, with the Airport impacted by limited operations both before and after the actual closure.

“Clearly, the complete closure of the airport for several days was a very unusual situation and inevitably had an adverse impact on passenger numbers, but the most important thing is that, after Danish airspace was reopened, we were quickly back at full operation. The passengers are back, and we retain our forecast of traffic growth in 2010,” said Carsten Nørland, VP, Sales, Copenhagen Airports.
