Copenhagen Airport

Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup is the main international airport serving Copenhagen, Denmark, the rest of Zealand, the Øresund Region, and a large part of southern Sweden including Scania. It is the second largest airport in the Nordic countries.

As of 2019, the country was the largest airport in the Nordic countries with close to 30.3 million passengers. It is one of the oldest international airports in Europe. It is the fourth-busiest airport in Northern Europe, and the busiest for international travel in Scandinavia.

The airport is located on the island of Amager, 8 kilometres south of Copenhagen city centre, and 24 km west of Malmö city centre, which is connected to Copenhagen via the Øresund Bridge. The airport covers an area of 11.8 km2. Most of the airport is situated in the municipality of Tårnby, with a small portion in the city of Dragør.

The airport is the main hub out of three used by Scandinavian Airlines and is also an operating base for Sunclass Airlines and Norwegian Air Shuttle. Copenhagen Airport handles around 60 scheduled airlines, and has a maximum operation capability of 83 operations/hour, and a total of 108 jet bridges and remote parking stands. Unlike other Scandinavian airports, most of the airport's passengers are international. In 2015, 6.1% of passengers travelled to and from other Danish airports, 83.5% to/from other European airports, and 10.4% were intercontinental passengers. The airport is owned by Københavns Lufthavne, which also operates Roskilde Airport. The airport employs 1,700 people.

Copenhagen Airport was originally called Kastrup Airport, since it is located in the small town of Kastrup, now a part of the Tårnby municipality. The formal name of the airport is still Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup, to distinguish it from Roskilde Airport, whose formal name is Copenhagen Airport, Roskilde.

Easy transit into the city

Copenhagen no longer has Uber. Taxis are slow and insanely expensive. The Metro is cheap, fast, and will take you right into the downtown train station, or (with a single, easy transfer) to the UN offices and the cruise ship port.

F Gates

Earlier this month we flew to and from Copenhagen from Edinburgh with Easyjet. Having flown with Easyjet previously we were not surprised by the flight. However what did surprise us was the F gates at Copenhagen Airport. Firstly they are about 20 minutes walk with only assistance for part of the way and secondly the F satellite is about as basic as it could have been made. This is after all a permanent installation and to have insufficient seats and toilets is totally unacceptable. I would suggest that if you are flying to Copenhagen do not go with Easyjet or Ryanair.
