I sadly and totally disagree, I have only seen improovements in my dearest airport.
Over the years CPH has gone from a 70's dinosaur to a 90'/00's hightech designer masterpiece, it has the most astounding design, I have ever witnessed at an airport.
The best thing has yet to come:
Several postal airlines has made CPH their nothern Europe or Scandinavian hub (TNT/FEDEX) and with the huge cargo terminal it also looks like it.
The growth does not stop here, they are far from finished with CPH, a new family area has been build in Term2 along with designer chairs at a relaxment area in Term2 ( if that isn't to the benifit of the consumer then?!!).
The building of a fourth terminal is undergoing at the moment not to mention the nearly finished Hilton.
I can't see where you think it has slowed down or lost it's quality, after all it has gotten so many awards, both by pros and consumers.
I hardly think that their interrest in better stocks, are the sole or at least dominating reasons for buying and running other airports. They invest huge amounts of money (in Mexico they investet 400mill DKK) in what they feel will either improove or convien the airports.
I can't see why you see the CPH as being a money horny capitalisitc hog, who's sole interrest is to earn and ruin, because I feel that that's the complete oppisition to what CPH is...
Gkirk I'am glad that you see it as something positive, but I have to agree with Billy, how could it have an effect on the routes from or to CPH, after all it's not SAS or Maersk who's running Newcastle.
Preben one last remark, when has CPH gone from being the dominating airport of Scandinavia, to a second rankone?!!!
I don't know where you see this decline, I can only see improovements, and it is the one and only dominating airport in Scandinavia.
After all El Al cancled their routes to Finland and Stockholm, but they increased their traffic to CPH, hmmm
I can not and will not let say that it's importance or dominans has changed or decreased, because it's the perfect contrast to what's it's status is today!!!
