New regulations from U.S. authorities regarding flights to the U.S.
If you are travelling to the U.S. it is important that you arrive at your airport well in advance of your departure, as you will need extra time to check-in and for security screening.
This is due to additional regulations from U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) affecting all departures to the U.S. as of October 26th.
All aviation companies in all countries, must adhere to the same regulations. This also affects transfer passengers.
Increased border control at Copenhagen Airport
The Danish authorities have decided, in view of the change in the EU rules on the Schengen Zone, that effective 7 October 2017, the Police are to check the passports of all travelers crossing the Schengen border.
The new rules mean that all travelers, irrespective of their nationality, that cross the Schengen border, are to have their passport scanned at the Police passport control in Copenhagen Airport. Scanning is designed to check passports in relevant databases.
Copenhagen Airport anticipates waiting times of up to one hour at passport control, depending on whether you are arriving or flying from the airport. We therefore advise our passengers to arrive at the airport in good time, as passport control is performed after check-in and security.
Please note, that the new rules only affect travelers who cross the Schengen border. If you are traveling within the country or to other Schengen area countries, you do not have to scan your passport.
We otherwise suggest our passengers contact the Police or Copenhagen Airport for more detailed information on rules and guidelines for the time you should allow to go through passport control in order to make your flight.

Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland are associate members and apply the same rules.
