The Copenhagen Airport security is not yet up to pre-coronavirus levels; however, traffic has resumed and during the May bank holidays, many Danish travellers have faced long queues, some have even missed their flight.

Therefore, the current advice from airport officials is to arrive at least two hours before any European flight and three hours before flights outside of Europe.

The reason is that many security officials were laid off during corona, and even if the airport has started hiring again, training takes time. Copenhagen Airport expects to be back at pre-covid 19 levels by beginning of June and in time for the summer season.

According to the airport training takes time as does security clearance for the security staff.

Also some airlines’ are still low on check-in staff which can also give queuing at check-in.
