More than 30 million passengers travel through the Danish airports each year. This activity creates substantial value for the Danish society and supports a large number of jobs.
Over the past ten years, the aviation sector has undergone significant changes. Among other things there has been a tendency throughout Europe towards more low cost carrier based traffic. These changes also affect the economic value creation.
Copenhagen Economics has analysed the economic value of air transport for Denmark in a future scenario of increased capacity as well as a future scenario involving a network rationalisation by the home network carrier, SAS. Furthermore, we have analysed the economic value of the tendency towards more international traffic from the smaller Danish airports in Jutland.
Today, Martin H. Thelle presents the results for Rådet for Dansk Luftfart (‘Council of Danish Aviation’) at the Danish Ministry of Transport and Building in Copenhagen.
