Copenhagen Airport served nearly 20 MAP in 2005. The airport is located in Kastrup, 7 miles southwest of downtown Copenhagen. Taxi service from the airport to down- town takes about 15 minutes and costs less than $30. The layout of the airport, including the rail station connected with Terminal 3, has been designed to create "seamless" transfer. The airport is an integral part of the Oresund Crossing system, which links Denmark with Southern Sweden by a complex bridge/tunnel system that has both highway and rail facilities. Connections at the Airport. The new Terminal 3 has been designed to include an architec- turally ambitious integrated air-rail terminal complex. A new check-in facility has been opened in the rail station lobby of Terminal 3. A new baggage claim and customs clearance center for the airport has been built as part of the new Terminal 3 complex. Rail. Rail service began in fall of 1998 and operates every 20 minutes, with a 12-minute travel time to Central Station for about $4. The service continues on to Hollinger and other cities, pro- viding national rail access to the airport. Passengers on other national services are provided with transfers at major stations, including Central Station. In July 2000, the rail service was inaugu- rated through the new bridge and tunnel to southern Sweden. Baggage-Handling Strategy. No off-site check-in services are planned in Denmark. The future of airport check-in facilities in Malmo, Sweden, is currently under discussion. New rail equipment for the cross-sound service is designed to accommodate a wide variety of objects, including bicycles. Historically, SAS provided baggage check-in services in many of their hotels, but this has been phased out. Bus. Until 1999, airport bus service to Central Station had been provided every 15 minutes in association with SAS--the airport's dominant airline. The SAS bus charged $5 for the 20-minute ride. As a result of the introduction of rail service to downtown, the SAS bus to down- town has been eliminated. The city transit agency runs a bus to Central Station downtown, which is priced below the rail fare. Direct bus service is also operated between the airport and the south of Sweden. Before the rail service was initiated, the bus system captured 28% of the air traveler market.
