Copenhagen Kastrup Airport T2 reopens following refurbishment

Denmark's Copenhagen Kastrup Airport announced (13-Jun-2013) the partial opening of the airport's refurbished and expanded terminal two. The DKK540 million (USD96.67 million) project took 12 months to complete and increased the terminal's area by 1400sqm, including the installation of 12 check-in desks and 16 check-in kiosks. A new baggage system was also installed. The terminal will open fully in 2016. Copenhagen Kastrup Airport CEO Thomas Woldbye said: "Copenhagen Airport is growing, and to accommodate that growth we needed to create significantly more room for passengers and airlines and increase our capacity with additional space and new check-in desks. At the same time, we have upgraded our baggage system to handle the up to 30 million passengers we expect to welcome annually in the future. Overall, this will give airlines, handling companies and passengers a better product because everything from check-in to baggage drop and baggage sorting will become easier."
