New regulations from US authorities regarding travel to the US
If you're traveling to the US it is important to arrive at the airport well in advance of your departure, as you will need extra time to check in and pass through security.
This is due to additional regulations from US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) affecting all departures to the US from 26 October 2017.
Airlines in all countries must adhere to the same regulations. This also affects travelers in transit.
Increased border control at Copenhagen Airport
The Danish authorities have decided, in view of the change in the EU rules on the Schengen Zone, that effective 7 October 2017, the Police are to check the passports of all travelers crossing the Schengen border.
The new rules mean that all travelers, irrespective of their nationality, that cross the Schengen border, are to have their passport scanned at the Police passport control in Copenhagen Airport. Scanning is designed to check passports in relevant databases.
Copenhagen Airport anticipates waiting times of up to one hour at passport control, depending on whether you are arriving or flying from the airport. We therefore advise our passengers to arrive at the airport in good time, as passport control is performed after check-in and security.
Please note, that the new rules only affect travelers who cross the Schengen border. If you are traveling within the country or to other Schengen area countries, you do not have to scan your passport.
We otherwise suggest our passengers contact the Police or Copenhagen Airport for more detailed information on rules and guidelines for the time you should allow to go through passport control in order to make your flight.
*Countries that are members of the Schengen Agreement: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Malta, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden. Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland are associate members and apply the same rules.
