Aviation 2024

The aviation statistics sheds light on investments in the airports' infrastructure and on the development of transport of goods and passengers through Danish airports. The present aviation statistics were established in 1997. Previously aviation statistics were published only in summary form in the Statistical Yearbook.

Statistical presentation

The Aviation statistics describe annually investments in the infrastructure and quarterly and annually the development in air transport of passengers and goods through Danish airports. Statistics are compiled for domestic and international flights and subdivided into scheduled flights, non scheduled flights (charter and taxi flights) and other flights. Quarterly figures on passengers are seasonally adjusted.
