Well-functioning doors at Copenhagen airport


Copenhagen’s international airport, Kastrup, has 60 airlines in operation and over 62,000 passengers per day. In 2011, 22.7 million people passed through the airport, making Kastrup the largest Nordic airport. The airport has a maximum capacity of 83 take-offs and landings per hour and can accommodate 108 planes. Kastrup employs 2,060 people and a total of 22,000 people work at and around the airport. 500 companies operate in the area, including logistics companies, restaurants and cafes.

The 22.7 million people that pass through the airport each year want to make their way easily to get to their departures on time or to meet arriving friends and relatives. It must be easy for airlines to move planes in and out of the hangars, and the planes must be kept secure even when they are not in the air. The airport’s emergency services must be able to rely on the doors opening rapidly and at the right time. All the airport’s operators must be able to move goods and staff in and out through the buildings efficiently in terms of time and energy.

ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems has in total over 1,200 pedestrian entrance solutions, over 500 door and docking solutions as well as many hangar doors and high-speed doors installed at Kastrup.
