Roskilde Airport

Roskilde Airport is located 4 nautical miles southeast of Roskilde near the town Tune. It was opened in 1973 as the first of three planned relief airports around Copenhagen. These plans were shelved shortly after, and the two other relief airports never made it past the planning stage. The airport is owned and operated by Københavns Lufthavne A/S which also operates Copenhagen's major airport at Kastrup. The airport had 25,053 passengers in 2003. The airport is fully equipped, but most flights from this airport are taxi-flights, small-plane regular flights to minor domestic islands or business jets.

It was once discussed to move all charter flights from Copenhagen Airport to this airport, but then the European aviation market changed as national airliners were allowed to be challenged by privately owned ones. The former charter airline companies in Europe then more or less had to either become regular challengers or vanish from the market. Hence, no flights with large aircraft have been moved to the airport. The runway is too short for fully loaded jet airliners such as the Boeing 737.

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.

Private?

Looks like it might well be private aka "personal" - always hard to tell from far away.

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.

Major activity of gliders Fri, Sat and Sun. TMG and UL approved, but LSA like Cessna, Piper not, because of noise level.

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.

direct flights from IST too

There is a non-stop flight of TK from IST to AAl too.

FUEL

As a light aircraft pilot considering a trip to Gronholt it would have been useful to know whether 100LL is available. An indication of landing fees would also have been helpful.

That said, thanks for the info.

Billund

Billund is the main regional airport for the region of Jylland in Denmark, with connections to Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Poland, France, UK, Austria, Estland, Letland, The Faroes, Iceland as well as a host of charter destinations.. Apart from being a vital service for the communities in the region, it and the region has several other interesting attractions, number one probably being LEGO, the famous buidling block. The airport was actually started by the Lego-family and business, in order to facilitate expansion and development of the building block. Lego is still the main employer in the relatively small community, but which has a rather large regional reach. The first LEGOLAND is situated just south of the runway and so is one of Europes largest aqualands, waterfun-for-the-whole-family type of recreational facilty. A few miles from the airport you'll find Givskud Zoo, a major excotic animal park, much known for its extensive research in animal behaviour and endangered species preservation.
