Staff in the terminal area will direct you to your next gate. We will also 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 where you are arriving from and your onward destination. You must go through passport control when arriving from or traveling to a non-Schengen Area country. If you are traveling from a Schengen Area country to another Schengen Area country, you do not have to go through passport control. It is strongly recommended to always travel with valid travel documents and photo identification.
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.
