It all began in 1925
Founded in 1925, Copenhagen Airport was one of the first civil airports in the world. The early years were characterised by the pioneering spirit in a day and age when flying was for the privileged few.
The airport was an attraction in itself, also for the many people who did not have the opportunity to fly. A Sunday outing to the grass field in Kastrup, from where the large birds took off, soon became an attraction extraordinaire for the Copenhageners. In 1939, when flying was really gaining momentum and construction of Vilhelm Lauritzen¢s new air terminal was completed, World War II broke out and temporarily stopped the growth of the airport.
But when the war ended in 1945, Copenhagen Airport was ready for tremendous growth, and things have developed quickly since then. From 6,000 take-offs and landings in 1932 to almost 258,000 in 2007.
