Being the largest airport in Denmark, Copenhagen Airport is served well by the best airline companies in the Scandinavian region of Europe. Scandinavian Airlines is by far the busiest carrier that operates in Copenhagen Airport. Passengers may be surprised to learn that this airline is the official flag carrier of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. Scandinavian Airlines definitely has a unique status because no other airline company in the world takes the role of being a flag carrier for multiple countries.
Scandinavian Airlines connects Copenhagen Airport with the two other hubs that the company uses. This means that Denmark’s capital city is conveniently linked to Oslo Airport in the Norwegian capital and Stockholm-Arlanda Airport in Sweden’s capital. From Copenhagen, Scandinavia’s largest airline operates flights to over 40 destinations within Europe. The Scandinavian flag carrier offers direct trips to major cities such as Brussels, Hamburg, London, Madrid, Milan, Paris, Rome, and Zurich. Denmark’s flag carrier also links Copenhagen to important cities outside of Europe such as Bangkok, Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Tel-Aviv. Passengers can board Scandinavian Airlines flights from Terminal 3 at Copenhagen Airport.
Norwegian Air Shuttle is the second busiest airline at Copenhagen Airport. This major company is considered the second largest airline in Scandinavia after Scandinavian Airlines. All year long, Norwegian Air Shuttle connects Copenhagen with more than 20 destinations within Europe. The list of such year round service includes flights to Barcelona, Budapest, Edinburgh, Helsinki, London, Milan, Paris, and Prague. This major airline also offers seasonal flights to resort cities such as Athens, Ibiza, Heraklion, Marrakech, Rhodes, Venice, and Zagreb. You can find the Norwegian Air Shuttle fleet stationed next to Terminal 2 at Copenhagen Airport.
Since Scandinavia’s two biggest airlines dominate the schedule at Copenhagen Airport, all of the other airlines offer limited service at the airport. The list of large European airlines serving Denmark’s busiest airport includes Aer Lingus, Air France, Austrian Airlines, British Airways, Czech Airlines, Iberia, KLM, and Lufthansa. As expected, each flag carrier offers flights to major cities in its home country. For instance, Air France provides direct trips to Paris and Iberia operates flights to Madrid.
Copenhagen has a solid connection to the Middle East thanks to airline companies such as Emirates, Iran Air, Qatar Airways, and Pakistan International Airlines. Singapore Airlines and Thai Airways International are the only Asian airlines that serve Copenhagen Airport. Russia’s flag carrier Aeroflot links Denmark’s capital city with the main airport in Moscow.
