Airports in Copenhagen

Copenhagen International Airport (CPH)


The biggest airport in Scandinavia, Copenhagen International Airport is located on the island of Amager. Commonly referred to as Kastrup or Kastrup Airport, five miles (8km) south of downtown Copenhagen.

The facility sees 21 million passengers each year, of which more than 90 percent come on international flights. Despite the high volume of traffic, Copenhagen International Airport is an efficient facility with plenty to see and do inside.

Excellent restaurants serving international cuisine and a number of good duty-free and luxury brand shops provide entertainment for adults, while play areas keep the little ones occupied. There are also hot showers and saunas in the airport's hotels, which are a great way to relax between long flights.


Copenhagen Airport is situated five miles (8km) southeast of Copenhagen city centre.

Getting to the city

Buses, trains, and taxis provide transport from the airport to Copenhagen city centre and vice versa.
