Copenhagen T3 Remodelled

On June 5 the extensive remodelling project of Terminal 3 at Copenhagen Kastrup International Airport was completed. The improvement of the rail and metro interchange has been key to the project because up to 54% of travellers reach the airport by public transport. The previously separate rail and metro stations have been integrated by the use of increased space and new escalators connecting the metro platforms. The ticket office, which was located in the middle of the terminal, has been moved to the eastern side, freeing up floor space to improve check-in for SAS and Star Alliance carriers.
The rail connection was included in the building of T3 in the 1990s, and with the metro station opening just 18 months ago, it already accounts for 15% of passengers travelling to and from the airport. The metro now operates a 24-hour service, thus providing a safe and regular connection to the airport.
Airport COO Henrik Peter Jørgensen said of the improvements, “We now have a very well-developed infrastructure with the station area being an integral part of Terminal 3. The high proportion of passengers using public transport shows how important this integration is and that it helps reduce CO2 emissions.”
