CPH Copenhagen (Kastrup) Airport Info & Guide
Where is Copenhagen (Kastrup) Airport?
The geographic link between Scandinavia and mainland Europe, Copenhagen overlooks the Øresund Strait: Sweden is just minutes away. Denmark's capital city is rich with culture, shopping and nightlife, yet is small enough to be safe, intimate, safe and easy to navigate.
Copenhagen Kastrup Airport (IATA: CPH, ICAO: EKCH), officially Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup, and referred to as Kastrup Airport, Copenhagen International Airport or simply Copenhagen Airport, is the main international airport serving Copenhagen, in the region Region Hovedstaden, Denmark. CPH is located in the small town of Kastrup, in Tårnby municipality, on the island of Amager, just south of Copenhagen city centre.
The reference to Kastrup in Copenhagen Airport's official name is to help distinguish it from the far smaller Copenhagen (Roskilde) Airport (RKE), used primarily for general aviation, charters and a few domestic flights.
In 2011, Copenhagen Kastrup Airport served 22.7 million passengers (90% of them on international flights), making CPH the busiest airport of all Nordic countries. A new low cost terminal, CPH Go, opened at the airport in 2010 (EasyJet is operating out of the new terminal).
