Travel advice

We are currently experiencing longer waiting times in the airport. So please arrive in good time and be prepared for your trip.

Arrive in good time

  • Arrive at the airport in good time - even if you’ve already checked in from home.
  • We recommend that you arrive at the airport: 
    • Two hours before travelling in Europe and
    • Three hours before travelling outside Europe

Check in from home

  • Check in online from home if your airline offers this option. 

Follow your flight

  • Find your departure on Departures (cph.dk) and get updates about your trip. 
  • You can also follow your flight via the CPH Airport app. 

Check-in open time

  • Find your departure here and see when your airline opens for check-in, if you have luggage that needs to be checked in or if you need to show travel documents. 

Check entry requirements for your destination

  • There may still be specific entry rules related to COVID-19 for some destinations.
  • Check the entry requirements for your destination by filling out this form.
  • Make sure you have the right documentation with you – and be ready to show it. This will make the check-in process quicker. If you need a COVID-19 test, you can find more information here.
  • Get information and advice about COVID-19 here.

Take good care of your checked luggage

  • Make sure to have clear name tag on your luggage, so it is easy to relocate, should it be lost during your travels.
  • Check that the luggage tag and the small "bingo-tags" are correctly mounted. It makes it easier and faster to resend your luggage, should it not make it to the flight as planned. 

Pack your hand luggage correctly

  • This will make the security check quicker for you – and for the other travellers.
  • Pack your toiletries in one plastic bag of max. one litre. Only one bag per traveller.
  • Pack your laptop, iPad and other electronic equipment so you can quickly take them out of your carry-on and place them in a separate tray. 
  • See more tips for hand luggage here.
