As SAS passengers, both you and your baggage will in general be checked in to the final destination and you only need to go to the gate in connection with your departure. On the information monitors in the transit area, you can see which gate and terminal you need to go to and when the gate is open for boarding.
In the transit area, SAS has a transfer center where you can receive further information and help.
Domestic flights arrive and depart from Terminal 1. SAS international flights arrive and depart from Terminal 3. The majority of flights that SAS operates between Scandinavia and Europe (Schengen Area) arrrive at and depart from finger B in Terminal 3. This is a large benefit for passengers who have a stopover in Copenhagen.

The minimum connection time at Copenhagen Airport for flights within the Schengen Area is 30 minutes from the time you land until your onward connection departs (except for Aalborg and Aarhus). There are staff in the terminal area who will direct you to your next gate. Similarly, we will announce departure details for your onward connection onboard.
Passport and security control
Whether you need to go through passport and security control when you have a stopover in Copenhagen depends on the destination you are coming from and where you are travelling onward. Generally, you must always go through passport control when you arrive or are travelling to a non-Schengen Area country. If you are travelling from a Schengen Area country and are travelling to another Schengen Area country, you do not have to go through passport control, but you should always have valid travel documents and photo identification with you for your trip.
If you are arriving from a country outside the EU, you must go through security control again in Copenhagen before you can enter the transit area.
