Copenhagen Charges Frozen

Copenhagen Airports signed a new charges agreement in mid-September that runs for five and a half years, which freezes landing charges for the next 18 months.  The agreement is supported by most of the  airlines that operate out of CPH and incorporates a change to the charges structure, which includes a reduction of the take-off charge by 25%.  CPH is also committed to invest more than DKK 2.6 billion in infrastructure expansion and improvements over the contract period.
The new charges agreement came into effect on October 1, 2009, and has been approved by CPH on one side and on the other by SAS, Cimber Sterling and IATA – together representing 86% of all traffic at Copenhagen Airport.  Under the agreement, charges will be frozen until April 2011 in order to help airlines as well as the airport overcome the current global economic crisis.
