Recorded at CAPA LCC Airports Congress - Asia, 3rd week of Sep 2015
Copenhagen Airport Update
Copenhagen Airport has a dedicated low-cost facility that permits 25-minute turnarounds and boarding through front and rear doors on aircraft. Copenhagen's low-cost facility is one of a handful around Europe, perhaps spurred by consolidation and greater LCC size requiring innovation from airlines. On the full-service, long-haul side, Copenhagen recently received flights from Beijing Capital Airlines. Their Beijing-Copenhagen and Hangzhou-Copenhagen flights are their first long-haul services. The next largest opportunity for Copenhagen in Asia is a service to Hong Kong, which is the biggest unserved market for the airport. Cathay Pacific has mooted a possible Hong Kong-Copenhagen route.
