Travel is our passion – and that’s why we continue to do it. Through travel we connect people and places, and connections are more important now than ever.
This is a city where hygge (coziness) is key, and good design is effortless. Harborside walks and window-shopping, bike rides, admiring art, eating great food – these trademark Copenhagen pastimes aren’t going anywhere, and the city is blossoming back to life.
Here's what you need to know about flying to Copenhagen with us.

Danish authorities dealt with the COVID situation early, and have managed to control it.
We understand the need for reassurance, so we encourage you to read more about the current situation in Copenhagen by visiting these official websites of the Danish authorities:
As countries open up again, travel restrictions are fast-changing. Travelers should look into the current rules that apply to them for the destination they wish to visit (for example, requirements for a COVID test or possible quarantine, what documentation is required), and also for rules that apply to their return trip (for example, the need to quarantine after returning home).
Instructions from Visit Denmark:
"From June 15 2020, tourists from Germany, Norway and Iceland are allowed to return to Denmark and must show documentation of a valid booking on their arrival. This booking must be for a stay taking place outside the capital Copenhagen (Copenhagen Municipality and Frederiksberg Municipality) and must last at least six nights. Residences with the postcodes 1000 through to 2500 are considered to be in those locations. Tourists are allowed to visit Copenhagen but their stay must be outside it."
Excellent official resources:
According to the Danish authorities:
"If you are returning from private travel abroad, you are strongly advised to stay home for 14 days after returning from your travel. The advice applies to both Danes and foreigners who enter Denmark.
If you have travelled to areas in Germany, Norway or Iceland outside of closely populated areas, i.e. cities with a population of less than 750.000, and you adhere to the MFA’s (Ministry of Foreign Affair's) new travel advice during corona times, you do not have to stay home for 14 days."
As countries open up again, restrictions are often changing. These are excellent resources for up-to-date information surrounding issues such as wearing face masks, social distancing, and gathering bans.
