Copenhagen Airport Since 1925
Brief History - Kastrup Airport
Copenhagen Airport was established in 1925 - at Kastrup on the isle of Amager - and one of the first civil airports in the world - with an imposing wooden barrack - as the main terminal building - and many spectators watching the few plains take of and land - even though there were plentiful of time between the schedules flights. At that time the airport became a great attraction for the Copenhageners - who often went out to Kastrup Airport - and used the surroundings meadows for their picnic to experience this new aviation project. In 1939 - a new airport terminal was built for the few privileged passengers that could afford to fly and be transported in very fashionable manner.

The World's Oldest Airline
After the war in 1945 - the aviation became more popular then ever - and in 1946 - a new concrete runway was laid for the more than 50,000 take-offs and landings every year at Kastrup. The first and oldest airline in the world was the Danish - "Det Danske Luftfartselskab" (DDL) - established in 1918 - which later was turned into - Scandinavian Airline System - also known today as SAS. Up through the 1970s airport traffic kept on growing and at the present Copenhagen Airport is one of the most modern and bustling airports in the world - and has undergone a tremendous growth during the past.

No Fresh Drinking Water Station

When passengers has left all of their liquids at the security check for departure - there is no free drinking water stations with fresh tap water at Copenhagen Airport - like in other airports around the world. Passengers that are a bit thirsty - are compelled to buy small drinking water bottles at an extraordinary high price at the different shops that have a monopoly selling drinking water at Copenhagen Airport. This is quite against EU’s well known competition clause - but it is the same EU that has implemented the liquid regulations.

Duty Free - and very high prices

We are often advised by international passengers - that the so called duty free shops (TAX-FREE) at Copenhagen Airport often sell their products 20-30% higher then simelar shops outside of the airport - in and around Copenhagen. This is generally also the facts at other duty free establishments in numerous international airports around the world.

Prices at the Gifts Shops - Boutiques - Kiosks
Like in all other major airports - the prices at the gifts shops - Boutiques - Kiosks etc. are 60-70% higher then similar shops outside of the airport terminal.

"Pølsevogn" - At the Airport's Arrival Hall

As a must - a very important sausage stand is placed very near the baggage reclaim area at the airport’s arrival hall - so the Danes quite quickly - and after many days abroad - can smell the familiar aroma from the sausage stand - and then satisfy their craving and appetite - by enjoying their indispensable and delicious juicy and porky “Rød Pølse” (Red Sausage) - while waiting for their luggage.

Pasta - seafood - sandwiches - T-bone steaks etc. is also available at the Airport.
