Share your experience - Rate Copenhagen Airport, Copenhagen
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.
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
Great airport. Easy to navigate around and clean
Many smart options. However sometimes we cam notice that cleaning is not fisrt priority.
This airport has a great array of restaurants of all styles and great shopping! It has been easy to navigate for me, a foreigner, thanks to its design, helpful signs, and great staff. There is plenty of seating should you have to wait for a flight and is overall a pleasant environment.
