Location and infrastructure
Copenhagen Airport was named best airport in Europe and the seventh best in the world at the Readers’ Choice Awards “world’s best airports” by the travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler.
Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the travel industry’s recognition of “the best of the best in the travel market”.
Copenhagen Airport was named no. 1 airport in Europe and no. 7 in the world at the 2016 Awards.
Last year, more than 26 million passengers travelled through Copenhagen Airport. Danish travellers accounted for 35% of passenger numbers, while the rest were international passengers.
“Every year, Copenhagen Airport interviews 100,000 passengers to ensure that we are able to deliver what they demand. The Readers’ Choice Award is proof that we are on the right path”, said Peter Krogsgaard, Commercial Director at Copenhagen Airport.
Only 15 minutes from Copenhagen city centre
Getting to and from Copenhagen Airport is easy. Trains and metro are connected to the airport terminals, ensuring easy transportation to Copenhagen, the rest of Denmark, as well as neighbouring Sweden. In fact, it takes less than 15 minutes to get from Copenhagen Airport to the centre of Copenhagen by metro.
“The Copenhagen Airport has the most intercontinental, European, Scandinavian and Baltic connections of all the Scandinavian 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.
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.
