Copenhagen Airport is speeding up its €72.5 million construction project for the baggage system and Terminal 2 – in anticipation of more than 6.6 million passengers during the busy summer months.

The project is designed to provide better service, more space and more check-in desks for passengers.

The hundreds of thousands of Easter travellers at Copenhagen Airport were greeted by unusually large building walls, exposed ceilings and building dust in Terminal 2 and the wide walk between Terminals 2 and 3.

The airport by creating room for growth in the number of passengers in the coming years.

Technical director, Christian Poulsen, said: “With exposed ceilings in the hallway and many building walls, the work we are doing is now very visible to passengers.

“We will expand the walking area and in Terminal 2, we will eventually have 1,400 additional square feet and 12 new check-in desks before the summer, so we're busy.”

Over the last eight months, the airport has had about 350 craftsmen and technicians involved in the expansion work.

“With the new and significantly enhanced baggage facilities, we expect an even more reliable baggage handling - for the benefit of both passengers and airlines,” added Kristian Durhuus, CPH’s COO.
