Present and future Airport developments: In order to accommodate 40M passengers a year in the more distant future, Copenhagen Airport is embarking on a phased expansion project, eventually 'merging' terminals and separating arriving/ departing passengers in a more efficient way.
The first phase of construction started August 2014 - involving Pier C extension with new gates, individual lounges, and passenger services - scheduled to be compled late 2015. Thereafter Pier B extension will start. Also, the Arrivals area will get more of the large baggage conveyors, and will have natural light & high ceilings. An expanded, light & airy shopping area will offer a casual Danish atmosphere.
The T2 expansion by 2,300 sq.feet, with added security lanes, is to be completed by summer 2015
