Copenhagen Airport is launching a new express security check designed especially for domestic passengers, starting from noon this Friday.

The new check, ‘Domestic Travelers/CPH Express’, ensures the quickest possible way through security for passengers travelling to Jutland and Bornholm.

“Domestic traffic is crucial for Copenhagen Airport as thousands of Danes travel every day from various Danish airports to Copenhagen Airport, and many people from the capital use Copenhagen Airport for travelling to holiday destinations or meetings in Jutland and Bornholm,” said the airport’s press officer, Kasper Hyllested.

“That’s why we are very pleased to offer domestic travellers an even easier and quicker way through the airport.”

Domestic travellers will now be able to use CPH Express Track, the airport’s premium service, which is also used by 26 other airlines such as Air France, KLM, British Airways, Norwegian, Emirates, Thai Airways, Finnair, Swiss and Turkish Airlines.

Although domestic travellers constitute only 6 percent of the total number of passengers at Copenhagen Airport, Danish politicians had to change the law so the separate fast security check could be implemented.

Previously it was illegal to discriminate between domestic and international passengers.
