Copenhagen Airport

Copenhagen Airport (CPH) is a comprehensive aviation hub that serves the storied city of Copenhagen. It is the largest international airport in the Nordic region, seeing over 25 million passengers each year, and frequently a connecting hub for long-haul flights around Europe. There are three terminals in Copenhagen Airport, but Terminal 1 was recently closed, with all flights—international and domestic—departing and arriving in the newer Terminals 2 and 3.

There are all the standard facilities, such a ATMs, a bureau de change, paid-for WiFi access, disabled facilities, a business centre, and car rental agencies, but where this airport really takes off is in its leisure amenities. Boasting over 120 different retail stores that range from cosmetics, to fashion, electronics, souvenirs, toys, jewellery, designer boutiques and gourmet food outlets, shopaholics will be thankful for the transit time they spend here. The dining experience here is equally impressive, with an excellent variety of different cuisines and dining styles available to choose from.

The airport offers destinations to over 100 different cities in places like Europe, North America, the Middle East, Africa, and East Asia. If you are flying from Australia, the best airlines to fly with are Emirates, Qatar Airways, Qantas, Air Canada, SAS, Air China, Thai Airways, Singapore Airlines and British Airways. These will involve at least one stop, usually in cities like Bangkok (BKK), Doha (DOH), Singapore (SIN) or Dubai (DXB).

Travel Information

· Copenhagen is easily accessed from its international airport, as it is located only 12km from the city centre. A car ride should only take around 20 minutes, and once you leave the airport you must merge onto the E20. Take exit 19 (Orestad towards the Bella Center), then hop onto the Center Boulevard. A right onto Vejlands Alle, and then a left onto Orestads Boulevard will take you directly to Amager Boulevard where you will take a left, cross the river and you’ll reach the centre of town. The car hire agencies in the airport are Europcar, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz and Sixt, but you can also hire a car online.

· There is a train station, and a Metro station located in Terminal 3. Shuttle services, as well as travolators will help you make your way to these stations if you are on the far end of Terminal 2. The rail services are incredibly efficient, and offer routes to the city centre of Copenhagen, as well as destinations in neighbouring Sweden. A ticket into the city centre on the Metro will cost about 35DKK ($7) and take around 15 minutes.

· Route 5A will also take you to Copenhagen Central Station. The bus comes every 10 minutes to the airport, but the journey is longer, almost double that of the trains, at a duration of about 30-35 minutes. Alternatively, you can arrange an airport transfer in advance with Skyscanner.

· Taxis are available outside the terminals, and like a car journey, the travel time should be about 20 minutes in light traffic. This is the most expensive way to travel into the city, with a cab fare coming to about 250-300DKK ($50-60).
