What construction? As DenverDane just reported, the project is pretty much dead.Could be more futuristic or at least shape and facade could be more visually appealing for such an important European city. I am not particularly impressed, but may be it will evolve before construction starts
Sad, but perhaps for the best. It just seamed like an accident waiting to happen. (Not a flight accident)This one looks to have been put on ice....
I must agree that the location was pretty bad, considering that there would be shuttle buses between the new terminal and the existing ones.
I agree. But I think the investers had a point, in saying that whenever someone has a monopoly, like cph airport does, things tend to take a very long time, and always ends up costing a lot more, and therefor making it uninteresting to the low cost carriers.I am glad it didn't happen. All the terminals at CPH must be connected and close to the trains etc.
Here is a lot more about the new terminal, called Swift:Now Copenhagen Airport pressent their plans for a new low cost terminal.
This is expected to kill any plans for an alternative terminal A.
I think it's the compromise between making it cheap and efficient. Swift reminds me a bit of the M-gates at Amsterdam Schiphol. When you fly with eg. Sterling from Amsterdam to Copenhagen, you'll be lead into Lounge 4 and M-gates, and it's a bit of an walk. And there's no jetbridges, either. No jetbridges saves a lot of time, I think. And you don't have to pay for the operator, etc.I was just about to post!
I really like it and think that it is a much better solution than Terminal A. The only thing I don't like is that there aren't any bridges leading straight to the aircraft.
