Roskilde Airport

Roskilde Airport Roskilde Airport is a small but exclusive airport at an attractive location near Copenhagen.

Roskilde Airport is owned and operated by the listed company Copenhagen Airports A/S, whose primary business activity is Copenhagen Airport at Kastrup.

On average, an aircraft lands or takes off every five minutes – every day, year round – at this airport, which is primarily used for training, taxi and corporate flights.

Since the opening of the airport in 1973, a lot has happened on the fields south of Roskilde, and start of a so-called EIA (environmental impact assessment) in the autumn of 2003 was the first step towards a potential expansion of Roskilde Airport.

A short introduction to Roskilde Airport

Roskilde Airport is located eight kilometres south of Roskilde, between the towns of Gadstrup and Tune. The airport lies 40 kilometres from the Copenhagen city centre and 45 kilometres from Copenhagen Airport at Kastrup.

The airport is owned and operated by Copenhagen Airports A/S (CPH), a company listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. Copenhagen Airport at Kastrup is its primary business area, but CPH is also involved in international activities through its investments in Newcastle International Airport in the UK, Meilan Airport in China and Rygge Civil Airport in Norway and nine Mexican airports.

Roskilde Airport formally opened on 1 April 1973. The decision to build an airport near Roskilde was in part based on plans to build a new major airport on the island of Saltholm in the Oresund plus three satellite airports. These plans were later abandoned, and Roskilde Airport is the only one of the three satellite airports that materialised.

As was the case with Copenhagen Airport at Kastrup, Roskilde Airport ownership and operational responsibility were taken over by Copenhagen Airports A/S in October 1990. Before then, the airport was owned by the Danish state and operated by the Copenhagen Airports Authority, a public corporation under the Danish Ministry of Transport.

The airport is primarily used for flight instruction and taxi and training flights. The largest carriers operating out of Roskilde Airport are Copenhagen Airtaxi and Execujet Scandinavia.

Roskilde Airport is the domicile of about 30 companies and the workplace of about 300 people. The 1200-square-metre terminal building includes a cafe, an airport office, a meteorological service and administrative offices.

Number of operations in 2003: 90,658
Number of passengers in 2003: 43,220

Over the past five years, the airport has handled between 30,000 and 50,000 passengers per year.
