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 maxiumum 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) and the eastern side of the city centre. It does not stop at København H (Central Station) but is handy for Christianshavn, the city centre and Nyhavn (get off at Kongens Nytorv for Nyhavn). Journey time 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 to 20 minutes. Journey time is 14 minutes (36kr). Check schedules at www.rejseplanen.dk.
