Copenhagen Airport

Travel Guide Europe Denmark Zealand Copenhagen Copenhagen Airport



Copenhagen Airport (CPH) is located in the suburb Kastrup some 8 kilometres south of the city centre of Copenhagen and is the busiest airport in Scandinavia, serving more than 20 million passengers in 2006. It serves destinations all across Europe and some intercontinental ones as well.

For more information about other airports throughout the world, also see the list of airports.



Getting there and away

  • Metro: Since September 2007 the Copenhagen Metro line M2 has provided a direct link between the airport (station named "Lufthavnen") and the inner city in only 14 minutes. The trip covers 3 zones and will cost you 28,50 DKR (a little less than €4) for a one-way ticket.
  • Rail: The airport also has a train station placed right below terminal 3 serving Copenhagen Central. It's on the Oresund Railway line and is served by Oresundstogene, the main way to get into the city centre and to Helsingor, Malmo and other Swedish cities. Danish Intercity trains terminate at this station, going to places in Denmark such as Esbjerg, Aarhus, Frederikshavn and Padborg, where connections are available for trains to Germany. Also, SJ operates high-speed trains to Stockholm and Gothenburg. On the Danish side, the fare system is the same as with the Metro, so prices are the same.
  • Bus: Numerous buses also serve the airport, but unless your destination isn't served by a train/metro station they will for the most part not be preferable, as they are not a cheaper alternative. Night bus 96N may be useful, however, as it runs Monday-Wednesday night between the airport and the city when the Metro does not. Movia buses 5A, 35, 36 and 96 N and Gråhundbus line 999 all stop at the airport. Furthermore bus 888 is the express-bus to Jutland which also stops at the airport. Movia bus 2A stops near the airport. There are long-distance buses to Sweden.
  • Taxis are to be found outside Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. For passengers going to Sweden by taxi, there are special taxis outside Terminal 3, however some regular taxis also accept trips across the bridge. By car, the E20 runs right by the airport. The E20 uses the Oresund Bridge to Sweden. There are almost 10,000 parking places available at the airport and numerous options with rental car companies like Hertz and Avis.
