Copenhagen Airport, Copenhagen Reviews - Write a Review

  • I think the airport is very good. I have been to others and they were way more stressful as this one. I like the variety of shops, the seats (which you can find all over the area) are comfortable and the staff is friendly and helpful.

  • I give CPH Airport 5 Stars even with all the construction going on at the moment. Amongst top 5 in the world... I'm also Danish and very biased.

  • Plus: Free WiFi, (need to provide an email address, though), quite clean, copious space to sit Minus: unexpected smells when there (like pea soup), though not actually bad

  • Quick check in,immigration and security check.

  • Many smart options. However sometimes we cam notice that cleaning is not fisrt priority.
