CONSTRUCTION WORK has begun on a new passenger building at Copenhagen’s Kastrup Airport, dedicated to low-cost operators.  The facility was designed by Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects, the company that also designed Terminals 2 and 3, and the first passenger building at the airport back in 1943.  The development is an extension to the existing Pier D and will provide six gates in a 64,585sq ft (6,000m2) structure, connected by a 25,834sq ft (2,400m2) hallway.
“With CPH SWIFT, we are creating a new concept and providing new physical facilities that meet low-cost carrier demand for quick service of passengers and handling of aircraft” said Brian Petersen, CEO of Copenhagen Airports A/S.
