Copenhagen is a great international airport. The service is often great, a little busy as all international airports, but the staff is friendly and copes with the problem as good as they can. The look of the airport is fantastic. Its sophisticated, it has style and is easy to navigate. The time it takes from check-in to the transit hall doesn't take more than maximum 15 minutes with the new security system, and the big windows in the transit lounge makes the mood great for flying. One og the downsides is the extremely expensive shops, but one doesn't Have to buy anything, walking around looking is good enough. The other and biggest downside is the distance between the terminals. Terminal 1 is very far from terminal 2 and 3. There is an airport bus every 10 minutes, but not all travelers know this, and can therefore experience a rather long walk.

I travel a lot, and my trips always start in Copenhgen Airport. I think that its a excellent airport, with superb lounges and shopping possibilities, and all in all a great place to wait for your flight, it is the all time best airport I've been to.

Arriving in Copenhagen is always a pleasure. It is quiet and relaxed and at the same time efficient and clean. In almost two decades of regular flying I have never experienced long queues, except for the extended security performed by some US airlines when checking in, and at GRU, which probably explains why they have the monopoly there. Airport buses are available near terminal 1 and are easy to find and pay for even if you don't speak the lingo.

Easy, small, modern airport for transfers as well as for final or entry point. Simplicity and short distances make the airport a pleasant experience. Oppose strongly the shopping malls which one is forced (trapped?) to walk through when moving around.

Transitted through CPH and only complaint is that airline lounges are not airside. Had to enter Denmark to get access to Star Alliance Gold Lounge. SAS ground staff very efficient in providing taxi / hotel vouchers for an overnight stay due to aircraft unavailability.

I was surprised at the inefficiency at this airport. The counter agent "forgot" to tag my bag, and because of confusion with the conveyor belt not operating properly, I didn't notice. It took 3 days to receive my bag in the US. The airport is attractive, but the walk from the bus arrival area to the International terminal is horrible - especially in the rain. There are no moving walkways to the gates - a very long distance for physically challenged and people with small children. The security check is the worst I've ever encountered - carryon bags were dumped out, contents removed and refused (a can of fish), and I was patted down without benefit of a choice of a female agent (I am female). A second security check at the gate area resulted in the plane leaving late, because the checking agency (US) could not connect and verify many passenger IDs. I will avoid this airport at all costs, even if I have to pay more to fly through another location

I use the airport approx 2 times weekly for a mixture of domestic, european and intercontinental flights. I find it efficient, pleasant, clean and very easy to navigate. It's also a plus that transport to and from Copenhagen city is fast, comfortable and reliable.

Flew into Copenhagen Kastrup from Vienna by Tyrolean. The signs were clear, a long walk past all the duty free shops to get to the baggage claim. The counter for buying tickets for onward journey to Malmo could be a bit confusing for first timer. Flying out from Kastrup is another story - not very friendly.

Arriving at pier A resulted in quite a lengthy walk to the exit area. Had carry-on luggage only but noticed very long waiting times for baggage reclaim. Railway station located just after exit. Ticket kiosks easy to use but check that you use the correct machine - DSB kiosks sell tickets for all Danish destinations, grey SJ machines are mostly for long-distance cities in Sweden, red or violet Skanetrafiken machines sell tickets for Southern Sweden. Transfer to the Swedish city of Malmo is convenient - modern regional trains shuttle over the Oresund bridge every 20 mins. Travel time is around 25 mins and costs 105SEK one-way. Departing CPH is a mixed experience. Self-service machines did not work properly, so had to lose half an hour as only two check-in desks were open. Flying back on Saturday evening meant no waiting at security. However staff there very unfriendly, not to say downright rude - no words spoken, only some vague gestures. Airside the terminal resembles a large shopping mall. Catering facilities overpriced but of good quality - spent around 150DKK for an orange juice and three fresh open-faced sandwiches. Toilets moderately clean and always located in some hidden corners.

Getting increasingly disappointed with arriving at CPH airport. With my 12 arrivals in the past 6 weeks, there were only 2 occasions, where I waiting for my luggage for less than 30 minutes, the screen information giving incorrect information. on 2 occasions information on the luggage arrivals belt even 'disappeared' from the screens. Whenever I enquired with the not always very airport staff, unexpected snowfall was the univocal explanation. It's winter and this is Scandinavia! I can only attribute these 'unexpected snowfall' explanations to excuses for providing inferior and lazy service standards.

I have used Copenhagen Airport hundreds of times and this airport has never disappointed. The design of Terminal 3 bright, light, spacious, modern and yet cosy. The walk to/from gates can be a little long though. Staff is friendly and attentive and the transfer possibilities and facilities are excellent.

All flights T3. Arrived from Narita and straight into a full security check which seemed bizarre. Transferring on SAS to Manchester. No seating outside departure lounge so bodies sitting/lying in the corridors. Flight display outside gate not working so fingers crossed no change to gate prior to flight. Quite a bit of renovations going on, nice wooden floors going in, hopefully some seating too. 3 weeks later arrived from Heathrow, landed at 1700 caught the 1736 train to Malmo after clearing immigration and baggage control.

It was horrible to travel out of Copenhagen Saturday 20. of June 2009, due to low manning and/or low capacity to handle the amount of passengers. Arriving at the airport more than 1 hour and 20 minutes prior to the scheduled flight-time of the plane to London should be sufficient enough. First, the automatic check-in facilities did not recognize my reservation number, even though there had been no changes in the reservation since the purchase 10 days prior. I, and a handfull of other passengers, were sent to a line for passengers with problems using the check-in machines. This line was handled by one person only and 25 minutes prior to departure, after being in line for 40 minutes, we finally convinced an employee to check us in separately and bypass the line. We were met by another big line at the security control, but just managed to get on the airplane by running through the entire terminal. The staff appeared to be in a bad mood, no wonder, and one member even critizised us for arriving at the airport too late. When I arrived in North America 18 hours later, the local baggage service informed me that my suitcase had not left Copenhagen Airport yet. Rail transportation to the airport works excellent though. I would like to have reviewed other aspects of the airport, but I did not have the time to notice that.

Pleasant experience in Copenhagen airport. Transport links to the centre of the city are excellent. On arrival we took the Metro from the airport to Norreport metro station - took about 10 mins. Check in on the way home (Sun mid afternoon) was very quick - done via one of the automatic machines which even print your luggage tag - no queue at bag drop. Only problem was at security - very long queues and despite videos showing you what you need to do (take off belts etc) people were still waiting until they got to the security check before taking off jackets/ putting liquids in bags etc. Once through security, nice airy terminal and plenty of shops.

Some things work really well in CPH, others don't. The walking distance from domestic to international is killing. The staff is usually OK, but not as friendly and relaxed as in Billund. The lounges I've tried are not worth bragging about - Novia is small, crammed, has obnoxious staff and little food/drink selection. Servisair is better, more roomy and offers separate smoking room and massage chairs. The atmosphere is a bit gloomy though. I expect the SAS lounge to be much better, but I haven't been there for years, as they don't accept Priority Pass. On the good side, the shopping options are very good, and unlike most other airports, you actually don't get ripped off. If the sign says Sale, then you actually are saving substantially compared to normal prices. Restaurants are high class and there's plenty to choose from. And the general design of the airport is modern, lightyears better than Arlanda in Stockholm, similar to Gardermoen in Oslo, but not quite as nice as Billund.

Only ever transferred here and it is good in that respect. It is quite big but roomy and with quite a lot of options to wile away one or two hours. I do not know what it is like outside, but it is a good transfer location.

Copenhagen Airport has turned into a shopping centre and has become very poor. So if you want a smooth check-in, security control, pass immigrations, luggage handling by arrival, fair prices for parking etc. then avoid Copenhagen Airport! If you live in Denmark or Sweden then don't pay the horrible fees for parking. Public transport to Copenhagen or Malmo/Sweden by rail is fast, cheap, and comfortable. Check-in be prepared for long lines and crowding - especially if you are travelling economy. Security control long lines and crowding. The security control is absolutely not efficient compared with other airports. E.g. why haven't they established a conveyor belt or tables along the lines so you are able to prepare your jacket, belt, mobile, laptop etc. for scanning while waiting? After the security control don't expect to find information and which gate the flight leaves from. Instead be prepared to disappear in a crowded shopping centre. This is very stressing and you have a very high risk for missing your flight because you can't estimate walking time. And be aware - the prices in the airport is not competitive with shops in Copenhagen. There is not very much public space in the airport (because of all the shops) so be prepared for a long and crowded walking distance to the gate. When arriving to Copenhagen Airport be prepared to wait at least 30 minutes for the luggage handling. Also be prepared for long lines in immigrations.

CPH has at long last regulated smoking, thus removing what was always its biggest drawback: the need to walk through great clouds of tobacco smoke just to get to the gate. It's elegant and clean, with extensive shopping facilities, and the distances between gates are no worse than at comparable airports. The airport police was very helpful and friendly when my wife misplaced her purse. Note, however, that I almost always use CPH as a transfer point, rather than an origin/destination airport, so I can't really comment on the landside end of things.

I used CPH four times this month and it's hard to find a better airport in Europe. Rapid check-in, kind staff and a great deal of shopping facilities! Security procedures are smooth and almost no wait for your luggage. Metro and DSB trains connect CPH with central Copenhagen in less than 15 minutes (there are trains every few minutes). The only complaint could be about the long distances between gates.

Mixed feelings. Bright and very nice design. Long walks (too long I would say). Fells overcrowded. Very convenient check-in machines where you can get boarding pass for virtually any airline. Great transport links to the city and to Malmo. Confusing layout of airside zone. After Heathrow 5 or Hong Kong it lacks clear straight direction from A to B. Going from check in to gate and using signs I made 2 circles and 1 U-turn. Not easy. All in all good facility, very clean with helpful staff. 4 star.

The Airport is clean, transport from the city smooth by train but ways are very long and it seems like the airport was probably built with a lot of over-capacity. Still it lacks of check-in- facilities and queuing is even required for business. And what is that policy about having to check in hard-shell suitcases as odd sized luggage? (Which led to the not-arrival of my suitcase at Destination) I have never experienced that in any other airport around the world.

This airport has everything its Scandinavian counterparts lack. Extremely nice design, unlike Stockholm, and extremely good shopping centre and food, unlike Oslo. I had the best seafood in years, cannot imagine a better airport to spend a few hours. Transfer folks friendly (SAS), new and peaceful waiting areas at the B gates, good selection and prices in duty-free. Can't wait to come back one day after they finish the works.

Despite arriving at a semi-empty airport, we had to be bussed to the terminal rather than use the finger which we had pulled right up to. Always annoying. Public transport to Copenhagen by rail is fast, cheap, and comfortable. First class! Departing Copenhagen one noticed that there was a lot of building work going on. There were too many shops crowding in on public areas as well which makes it look more and more like a UK airport which is not a good sign. Finally, many passengers nearly missed their flights to various UK destinations since there was one immigration officer at the piers passport control. I have never seen such long lines in an EU airport. It felt as though I was trying to leave the old Soviet Union.

The airport was very unimpressive - very long walks to get from where you are to where you want to be, and confusing to get around. The worst part is that I am a non smoker and it is VERY difficult to find smoke-less air when walking around, or waiting for your luggage (there was a table with an umbrella under which smokers needed to stand and smoke - but nothing to draw the smoke away from coming right into the luggage area room). We had a long walk from arrival to get to the main area - and these little smoker areas were in the narrow hallways all the way through-out - could not escape the smoke. The shopping area is very nice - but when getting out of the area the smoke hits you again. The restaurant area is quite smoky - hard to find a place to sit where one can breathe without smoke.

I would like to add to the previous comment about signage at CPH. As soon as you have been screened at security the departure gate screens are ahead of you. I will agree that more screens are needed. In terms of gate status - that is usually down to the gate agent. Especially low cost carriers like EasyJet don´t have their gates announced until 30 40 mins before departure. Which is understandable as they have typically very short 25 min turnarounds. I like the new direct metro link, which is a huge time saver and has made this Airport extremely accessible. The self service check in at the metro platform is a nice touch. The only thing that let´s it down is the lack of escalators from Metro station down to Check in and arrival level. There are elevators but even so, this was a design error in my opinion. With all the new enhancements I would have hoped that they would have installed moving walkways between pier A and security/baggage claim. It´s a very long treck now. Otherwise this airport is still a firm favourite of mine.

The signage has become very poor after the airport was turned into a shopping centre with a possibility to fly - if you can find a FIDS screen telling which gate you have to go to! I normally want to perform check-in, pass immigrations and security control, find which gate the flight leaves from (in order to estimate walking time) before I relax, do some shopping, have a cup of coffee etc. But in Copenhagen, you are led into a shopping centre first - and not until you have passed that can you find information - that is: If it does show the gate at all. I had to wait until 40 minutes before departure before the gate was shown - and then with the note: Go to gate!

I live in Sweden but I prefer to fly from CPH. Fabulous seafood in the one of the most famous seafood restaurant. Upper class airport, great and fast service, almost no queues. Check in to USA flights - maximum 10 min. European flights - you can use a lot of check in kiosks - really good and fast. Shopping a paradise for frequent airport shoppers.

I love this airport. We have been stuck on big delays here on a few different trips and dare I say it was an absolute pleasure. There is actually some amazing dining here, I had one of my favorite meals of our trip in their lovely, airy seafood restaurant. Great shopping, wonderful open design. Really great. One of my favorites in the world.

Clean and modern, just poorly designed. Depending on the gate you arrive at, or depart from, you may be in for a long walk. A good range of shops and restaurants in airside but very little around the check-ins. Excellent public transport connections to Kopenhagen and Malmo (Sweden)
