Copenhagen Airport will open a new 850 m2 luxury Eventyr Lounge today in its Pier C, accessible to all passengers for a small fee.

Pier C after passport control serves non-Schengen flights and long-haul intercontinental flights. This is the sixth such pay-to-access lounge at Copenhagen Airport, offering passengers refreshments and a quiet place to relax or work before their flight. They are comfortable options for passengers who may not hold membership cards to access the airline lounges at the airport.

Peter Krogsgaard, Copenhagen Airport’s chief commercial officer, believes the location of the new Eventyr Lounge will make it popular with travellers.

“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 travellers and for the continually growing number of leisure travellers who also want to be able to use the lounges to relax in peace and enjoy some refreshments before flying,” says Peter Krogsgaard.

Every day, more than 5,000 passengers visit the six lounges at Copenhagen Airport. A third of those are leisure travellers.

The new Eventyr Lounge will be operated by Menzies Aviation, which is also a ground handler managing aircraft and passengers at the airport.

“The new lounge will have 200 seats, divided between different zones for relaxation or work, with Danish designer furniture from HAY and Erik Jørgensen,” says Jakob Bo Andersen, Station Manager for Menzies Aviation at Copenhagen Airport.

Travellers will find lots of power sockets, iPads for printing boarding cards, a bar, and shower facilities, as well as a quality selection of food and wine.

“Our ambition is to have the biggest offering and to provide the best lounge food at Copenhagen Airport. And we also have a new wine concept: a ‘Vinotek’ with a great selection of wines,” says Jakob Bo Andersen from Menzies Aviation.

The new Eventyr Lounge is located at the top of Pier C, by gate C26, offering great views of the airport and its surroundings.

“From all around the lounge you will be able to enjoy a 180-degree 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. All in all, the Eventyr Lounge will be a truly unique place,” says Jakob Bo Andersen.

Menzies Aviation has also drafted an agreement with British Airways, and is in discussion with a number of other airlines, to offer their passengers complimentary access to the Eventyr Lounge.

The lounge will not be restricted to passengers travelling business class or with special tickets. Other passengers can buy a day pass which grants access to the facilities. A day pass for the Eventyr Lounge will cost DKK 250, approximately £28, €33 or $35.
