    the city is very easy to get around

    Copenhagen airport

    We found the airport to be a very friendly and an easy to manoeuvre place. Every one is funnelled to the same spot from arrivals ...it's hard to go astray. Once we picked up our bags we headed for the exit area for a train...taxis and buses and metro all leave from here. There are ticket vending machines on the baggage area but for us we need to talk to a real person to get directions .vert friendly here . ATMs are also at this location as well. very convenient Only a 20 minute ride to our hotel.

    "Copenhagen Airport" is called "Kastrup Airport", since it is located in the small town of Kastrup. It is an international airport that serves a lot of people around this region.

    It is located 8 km south of the city on the island of Amager. It is in the municipality of Tarnby that the airport lies. And this is the biggest airport in the Nordic countries and also it is one of the oldest international airports among European airports. And it has the most trafficated in Scandinavia. This is the reason why the airport has become the main hub for a lot of airlines like Norwegian Air Shuttle, Airlines Scandinavia and Thomas Cook.

    This airport takes care of 60 scheduled airlines and each day, more than 62,000 passengers make use of the airport. And in 2011, 22.7 million passengers passed through the facility of the airport. This is why it is the busiest airport in the region of Nordic. It has a maximum capacity of 83 loadings per hour and then there is room for 108 airplanes.

    And what makes this Copenhagen Airport special is that most of its passengers are international.

    The airport contains three terminals, who are all connected. Terminal 1 is for domestic flights. Terminal 2 and 3 are for international lights and routes to Greenland and the Faroe Islands. All international arrivals are at Terminal 3.

    Trains from Copenhagen Central Station and the airport departs every ten minutes, and the journey is about 20 minutes long.

    The easiest way to get to and from the airport is by Metro. The Metro runs around the clock, and stops at Kongens Nytorv, Nørreport, Frederiksberg and Vanløse.

    A bus ride is as cheap as the train and Metro, but the ride is a lot longer. A ride with either train, bus or Metro equals three zones and costs DKK 36.

    A cab ride is the most expensive way to get to and from the airport. To Copenhagen city centre it will cost around DKK 250 and 350. Taxi stands are located just outside terminal 3.

    Cheap flights to various cities in Europe.

    Easyjet flies from Copenhagen to about a dozen cities around Europe.
    They have very good prices and in my opinion it's one of the better budget airlines in europe.
    Easyjet is a nice casual airline where i have seen both dreadlocks and piercings on the flight attendants and i think that is a relief in a trade that is often way too conservative.
    Only disadvantage is that they use the dreadful budget terminal at Copenhagen airport.

    Cheap norwegian budget airline.

    by cachaseiro Updated Jan 8, 2013

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Norwegian is a budget airline that operates out of copenhagen airport and has flights to loads of destinations around Europe.
    It´s in many ways a scandinavian Ryanair and you should expect to pay for any extra you might need.
    They can have some very competitive prices at times and are worth checking out if you plan to fly from somewhere in Europe to Copenhagen.
    One really cool thing about Norwegian is that they have free wifi onboard their planes.
    It's not always working that way, but it sure helps you to kill time.
    everything else about the airline is pretty crap and very budget though.

    Cheap flights between Denmark and Spain.

    Vueling is a fairly cheap airline that connects Copenhagen with Spain.
    They connect Copenhagen with several towns in Spain and they are mostly very cheap and well worth looking in to if you are planning to fly between Copenhagen and any of the major cities in Spain.
    I have flown them a couple of times myself and i would say they are neither the best nor the worst budget airline i have flown.

    Emirates flies to Copenhagen daily and connects Copenhagen very well with the Middle East, Asia and Australia and they are worth looking in to if you plan to fly to Copenhagen from any of these destinations.
    They often have very good prices and their service is unbeatble if you ask me.

    Copenhagen Airport

    Copenhagen's airport named Kastrup lufthavn in Danish, (Airport code: CPH) is one of the most modern in Europe and is very user friendly many shops and nice waiting areas, the price level is high as there is a lack of competition. When flying from CPH you have the opportunity to avoid the long lines at check-in, as there are self-service automates you can use before you leave your baggage, at special counters for people that do their own check-in.
    At Arrival the baggage handling is normally quick and trouble free.
    Transport to and from the airport; A taxi ride (20 Min) to the centre of town will cost around 150 DDK (20 Euro) and extra if it’s in weekends or at night time. Bus lines are available and a regular train opens the opportunity for riding to Copenhagen central station or across the water to Sweden, Malmö. A new (September 2007) mode of transport to the town is the Metro that is not only the fastest (15 min) but also the most affordable mean.
    To use this you need to buy a ticket at the ticket counter after customs you find it, 50 meters straight-ahead (a good idea is to get a ten ride cutting cart, good for all public transportation, which you stamp before entering the train, bus or metro, 2/3 Zones 120/160 DDK (You need 3 zones to go to the centre of chp. My advice is to buy the more expencive 3 zonecard, or you can stamp the 2 zonecard two times) with one cut on a 2 zonecard you can hop on and off transports for a periode of one hour and longer if you cut more zones. The train and metro platforms are accessible from inside the terminal building and are located in the end of the building at a level below and above the exit.

    Getting Around CPH

    Shuttle Bus At CPH Hilton

    Although CPH is quite a large airport, with three terminals, it is designed quite compactly and so all three terminals are within easy walking distance of each other. However if you have mobility problems or heavy luggage there is a freebie circular shuttle bus which connects the three terminals, along with a couple of the airport hotels and parking lots. During the day this runs every 15 minutes and at night every 20 minutes.

    Kastrup Airport

    by antistar Written Dec 28, 2011
    Kastrup Airport, Copenhagen

    You can expect an uncomfortable landing at Kastrup. It's notoriously windy. There's a reason you can see wind turbines out of the window. The location of the airport off the Oresund Sound is a perfect channel for high speed winds drafting in from the North Sea.

    To compensate it's an easy ride into town on the metro. The driverless vehicles pick you up right where you disembark, and whisk you to the centre in about 15 minutes. You can buy tickets from any number of electronic dispensers, with a touchscreen interface in English, Danish and a number of other major languages. The price is about 6 euros.

    Kastrup is the busiest Scandinavian airport, and includes in its catchment area the densely populated county of southern Sweden: Skane. You can get to the airport from Malmo in about 20 minutes across the Oresund bridge by direct train. Most major European airlines fly here, as well as a number of international ones, but the major player is Scandinavian Airlines (SAS).

    Maersk-air could be the right choice!
    Here the danish "low-cost"company;It's not cheap as Ryanair but it's the best way to get Copenhagen from
    southern Europe..
    Good the service,even if,strangely for a scandinavian service,the departure flight toke off quite in late(40min.)...casuality I guess,and then the coming
    back was perfectly on time!
    Easy booking by internet and availability of the staff.

    Cheaply between Copenhagen and Iceland.

    Iceland Express flies cheaply between Copenhagen and Iceland.
    The route is of course interesting for travellers from Iceland who wants to visit Copenhagen, but i think the route can also be interesting for visitors to Copenhagen who have a dream of seeing Iceland as tickets to Iceland can be very expensive from some countries.

    Cheap scandinavian airline.

    Flying Cimber.

    Cimber-sterling is one of the biggest budget airlines from scandinavia and has lot's of flights to many european destinations as well as to Tel Aviv.
    they are one of the better budget airlines in Europe in my opinion and I do especially like their onboard service where I always have the feel that the staff have time for the clients and actually like helping them.
    In a world of budget airlines where i sometimes feel a little punished when flying, I do feel a bit like coming home when I fly Cimber.

    Direct flights between Copenhagen and Toronto.

    Air Canada has a direct service between Copenhagen and Toronto.
    It was closed down a few years ago but has now opened in 2010 and we are many who are very happy about that.
    Air Canada is flying this route in codeshare with SAS so you can continue further out in Europe with them on the same ticket if that is what you want.

    Air: Kastrup airport, the most important one in Scandinavia, excellently connected by train both with the city and with Malmö in Sweden over Europe's longest bridge.
    Train: frequent connections to Sweden (every 20 minutes, travel time to Malmö over the Öresund bridge half an hour), lots of trains to Germany.
    Excellent public transport both in the city and to the surrounding Sjaelland.

    Air Berlin connects Copenhagen with Berlin, Mallorca and Dusseldorf very cheaply.
    Air berlin is also in my opinion one of the best budget airlines in Europe so be sure to cheack out their page for good offers if you plan to travel between Copenhagen and Berlin, Mallorca or Dusseldorf.
