Copenhagen Kastrup (EKCH) is the capital airport of Denmark, and the busiest airport in the Nordic Region. The airport serves as a hub for Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) and Norwegian Air Shuttle (NAX), and many other airlines help connect it to every part of the world.

Kastrup is famous for its over-water approach path from which you can see the ├śresund Bridge, connecting Sweden and Denmark. The bridge is modelled nicely in most of the major flight simulator sceneries.

Charts & Flight procedures

Using runway 12/30 is restricted due to noise - the parallel runways should always be used. You should land on the left runways (04L or 22L) and takeoff from the right runway (04R or 22R).

The standard arrival routes at EKCH are non-rnav. Your FMC will not be able to follow STAR's at EKCH correctly. You have to read the charts carefully, or, if you do not have charts, advise ATC that you need vectors.

After landing, remain on tower frequency. Tower will give you initial taxi and tell you when to switch to apron.
