Getting around by air


Copenhagen Airport is Scandinavia's busiest air hub, with direct flights to cities in Europe, North America and Asia, as well as a handful of Danish cities.

Located in Kastrup, 9km southeast of Copenhagen's city centre, the airport is modern and user-friendly, with quality eating, retail and information facilities.

If you're waiting for a flight, note that this is a 'silent' airport and there are no boarding calls, although there are numerous monitor screens throughout the terminal.

Luggage lockers are available in the airport's P4 car park. Lockers come in three sizes, the largest being big enough to store ski or golf bags. Payment is by Visa or MasterCard only. Lockers can be rented for a maximum of seven consecutive days.

Transport Options

Copenhagen has an excellent transport system ensuring that your arrival at the airport and onward trip to your destination runs as smoothly as possible.


The 24-hour metro (www.m.dk) runs every four to 20 minutes between the airport arrival terminal (the station is called Lufthavnen, the line M2) and the eastern side of the city centre. The line is handy for Christianshavn, the city centre and Nyhavn (alight at Kongens Nytorv for Nyhavn). From mid-2019, passengers will be able to transfer to the new M3 (City Circle) and M4 lines at Kongens Nytorv. The M3 line will reach Vesterbro, Nørrebro and Østerbro, while the M4 line will reach the port area of Nordhavn. Both new lines will stop at Copenhagen Central Station (København H). Journey time from the airport to Kongens Nytorv is 14 minutes (36kr).


By taxi, it's about 20 minutes between the airport and the city centre, depending on traffic. Expect to pay 250kr to 300kr.


Trains (www.dsb.dk) connect the airport arrival terminal to Copenhagen Central Station (Københavns Hovedbanegården, commonly known as København H) around every 10 minutes. Journey time is 14 minutes (36kr). Check schedules at www.rejseplanen.dk.
