The new Eventyr Lounge has opened at Copenhagen Airport for passengers flying long-haul.
The lounge, located in Pier C after passport control, will cater for travelers flying to non-Schengen countries or on intercontinental long-haul journeys, although any passengers flying via the airport are able to pay DKK250 (US$35) to use the new luxury lounge.
Peter Krogsgaard, Copenhagen Airport’s chief commercial officer, commented, “With 36 routes to far-off destinations and ever increasing passenger numbers, the airport and airlines have really been missing a lounge after passport control.
“We now have one – both for business travelers and for the continually growing number of leisure travelers who also want to be able to use the lounges to relax in peace and enjoy some refreshments before flying.”
The lounge offers power sockets aplenty, iPads for printing boarding cards, a bar, food and wine, and showers.
The Eventyr Lounge will be operated by Menzies Aviation, which is also a ground handler managing aircraft and passengers at the airport. The firm has an agreement with British Airways and is in discussion with a number of other airlines to offer their passengers access to the lounge.
Jakob Bo Andersen, station managers for Menzies Aviation at Copenhagen, said, “From all around the lounge you will be able to enjoy a 180° view over the airport, allowing passengers to see all take-offs and landings, the control tower, and the Øresund with its wind turbines and bridge. Just in front of the windows, there will be a border with real moss and plants.
“The new lounge will have 200 seats, divided between different zones for relaxation or work, with Danish designer furniture from HAY and Erik Jørgensen. Our ambition is to have the biggest offering and to provide the best lounge food at Copenhagen Airport, and we have a new wine concept: a ‘Vinotek’ with a great selection of wines.”
Every day, more than 5,000 passengers visit the seven lounges at Copenhagen Airports, one-third of which are leisure travelers.
