Historic expansion of Copenhagen Airport

Copenhagen Airport is the gateway to Northern Europe and the Baltics, and one of Europe’s fastest-growing airports. A brand new expansion plan will create capacity and facilities to handle 40 million passengers a year and new routes, including 17 long-haul routes.

With a total investment of around DKK 20 billion, the expansion of Copenhagen Airport to handle 40 million passengers a year will be one of the largest privately financed construction projects in Danish history.

“Copenhagen Airport is currently Northern Europe’s preferred hub. We want to maintain that position, which means expanding and developing the airport. We are ready to invest in a massive expansion of the airport to create more capacity for both passengers and baggage as well as stands and gates for more aircraft,” said Thomas Woldbye, CEO, Copenhagen Airport.

The gateway to Scandinavia, Europe and the Baltics

Greater Copenhagen is the ideal hub for transport and logistics to Scandinavia, the Baltic Sea Region and Northern Europe with next day delivery access to approximately 100 million affluent consumers.
This is why major logistics providers such as DHL Express, UPS, TNT, PostNord and FedEx all use Greater Copenhagen as their logistics hub.

17 new long-haul routes

The aim of the plan is to create capacity and facilities to handle 40 million passengers a year and more new routes, including 17 long-haul routes serving the whole world, in addition to the existing 36. This will be achieved by developing the western part of the airport, enlarging the area for stands to 1,900,000 m2, twice the size of the current area. This will make it possible to increase the number of aircraft stands from 78 to 124.

“The Copenhagen Airport has the most intercontinental, European, Scandinavian and Baltic connections of all the Nordic airports. The airport’s efficiency, punctuality, well-connected flight routes and high-security level is a huge advantage for businesses locating in Greater Copenhagen,” says Claus Lønborg, CEO, Copenhagen Capacity.
