Flights from Manchester to Copenhagen only take around two hours, with services running right through the day. If you wish to travel in the early afternoon it may be necessary to take a connecting flight via Amsterdam. Stopovers can also include Frankfurt and Brussels on the route from Manchester to Copenhagen.
Copenhagen has a fairly mild climate, which is ideal for those that are not a fan of excessive heat, or those that enjoy exploring a city on foot. Temperatures average around zero during the winter months, but Copenhagen’s architecture paints a pretty picture when twinned with frost and snow.
The airport is located five miles south of Copenhagen’s city centre, and 15 miles west of Malmo. There are trains, buses, taxis and a metro system on offer to help you reach your final destination in the Danish capital.
