CPH | Copenhagen Airport

Here is some info on Copenhagen's Airport which is the busiest in Scandinavia and is a hub for Scandinavian Airlines, Norwegian Airlines, and recently Ryanair. Copenhagen Airport has two terminals, Terminals 2 and 3, which handle all flights and share a common airside passenger concourse as well as the arrivals section which houses customs and baggage claim and is physically located in Terminal 3. The newest section, CPH Go, dedicated to low-cost carriers opened in October 2010. So far, EasyJet, Transavia.com and Ryanair are the only airlines operating from this facility, which is accessed from Terminal 3. An all new Terminal 4 has been discussed, but replaced by plans to expand the current facilities in appropriate increments. The airport is also served by a few public transit options including the Copenhagen Metro and the Oresund Line which connects both Copenhagen and Malmo and Gothenburg in Sweden (both SJ and DSB serve the station as well).

Quote:
Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup (Danish: Københavns Lufthavn, Kastrup) or Copenhagen Airport (Danish: Københavns Lufthavn; IATA: CPH, ICAO: EKCH) is the main international airport serving Copenhagen, Denmark, the entire Zealand, the Øresund Region, and a large part of southern Sweden (not only Scania). It is the largest airport in the Nordic countries with 25.6 million passengers in 2014 and one of the oldest international airports in Europe. Furthermore, it is by far the busiest airport for international travel in Scandinavia.[3]

The airport is located on the island of Amager, just 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) south of Copenhagen city centre, and 24 kilometres (15 mi) west of Malmö city centre on the other side of the Øresund Bridge. The airport lies mainly in the municipality of Tårnby, with a small portion in neighbouring Dragør.

The airport is the main hub out of three used by Scandinavian Airlines and is also an operating base for Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia and Norwegian Air Shuttle. Copenhagen Airport handles 60 scheduled airlines and serves more than 62,000 passengers per day; 23.3 million passengers passed through the facility in 2012, making it the busiest airport in the Nordic countries, with a maximum capacity of 83 loadings/hour and with room for 108 aeroplanes. Unlike other Scandinavian airports, a considerable share of the airport's passengers are international. The domestic part of the annual passengers is lower than 10%. The airport is owned by Københavns Lufthavne, which also operates Roskilde Airport. The airport employs 1700 staff (excluding shops, restaurants etc.).[4]

Copenhagen Airport was originally called Kastrup Airport, since it is located in the small town of Kastrup, now a part of the Tårnby municipality. The formal name of the airport is still Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup, to distinguish it from Roskilde Airport, which formal name is Copenhagen Airport, Roskilde.

Norwegian Airlines is going to launch nonstop flights to Las Vegas and San Juan from Copenhagen beginning on 10 November 2015.



Norwegian Air launches Las Vegas, Caribbean flights

Quote:
[COPENHAGEN] Budget airline Norwegian Air Shuttle will launch new long-haul flights to Las Vegas, Puerto Rico and Saint Croix in the US Virgin Islands later this year, the company said on Tuesday.

The company will fly routes from Scandinavia and London.

Europe's third-biggest low cost carrier after Ryanair and easyJet has rapidly expanded into the long-haul business including the London to New York route, one of the most competitive routes in the world.

The expansion of Terminal 2 airside between pier A and B has begun.

It will create 4000 sqm of extra space in this very crowded space, 60% of all passengers passes through this area.


At the other end of the airport next to the CPH Go terminal they have started construction of the first stage of the new pier E, this will create over 20.000 sqm of extra space and 7 new gates.

No pictures has been taken from that place yet but I will use the CPH Go terminal in March so I will snap some pictures then.

The new central security area should be very close to completion by that time so hopefully I can take some pictures of that as well.

Qatar flies double daily most days with the Boeing 787-800.


1 SCANDINAVIAN AIRLINES 10.568.477 2,7%
2 NORWEGIAN 5.020.802 10,7%
3 RYANAIR LTD 1.917.727 168,1%
4 EASYJET 1.578.943 3,2%
5 LUFTHANSA 650.850 7,8%
6 KLM ROYAL DUTCH AIRLINES 545.437 5,7%

Update on (some) of the expansion projects.

The central security should open in a month or 2.

This is the current expansion projects at CPH.


Expanding the central security from 18 to 25 lanes:

The area infront of security is expanded with 1800 sqm

Security is located on the first floor, on the ground floor there will be restaurants and bars and there will be offices on the 2nd floor.

Completed around the new year


Expanded baggage claim area:

The waiting area will be doubled in size, not much about this project but they have used the area where the car rental was before.


Expansion of Terminal 2 airside:

T2 will be expanded with 4000 sqm between pier A and B, this will create 25-28 news shops/restaurants, a new playground and offcourse more passenger areas.

Done summer 2018, connection to the old part of the terminal and reconstruction will be done by summer 2019.


Restaurants before check in:

On the floor under the expanded central security they are opening 5 new dining options.

Bar Jacobsens gastropub, 42RAW, WOK, Riccos og Pret A Manger.

It should also ease access between T2 and T3 landside.

Should open in October.


Expansion and reconstruction of Terminal 3 landside:

T3 is the main terminal at CPH with the location of both the metro station and train station.

A pedestrian bridge will lead people directly from the first floor metro station to the central security.

A 1500 sqm expansion will connect T3 to the new central security, the bridge will connect to the first floor of this building.

The marble floor will be replaced with new marble.

The exit from the baggage claim area will be moved from the middle to the eastern side of the terminal to better seperate departing and arriving passengers.

This will open in stages from late 2017 to 2018.

And how could I forget the new Pier E

Pier E is 20.000 sqm large and will host 1 gate with a bridge and 6 bus gates.

Its only the first stage of a larger gate, stage 2 will have more gates with bridges and will also be on 20.000 sqm, no date has been announced for stage 2.

Stage 1 will be done in 2019.


There is also talk of expanding the logistics area but I haven´t seen anything more detailed yet.

But they will double the number of cargo from 500.000 tonnes to 1 million tonnes.
