Dansk

Københavns Lufthavn er Danmarks største lufthavn og blev grundlagt i 1925 som Kastrup Lufthavn. Lufthavnen var én af de første civile lufthavne i verden, hvorfor de første år var præget af pionérånden, hvor flyvning kun var for de priviligerede. Lufthavnen var således en attraktion som søndagstur for de mange, der ikke selv havde mulighed for at komme i luften. 2. Verdenskrig satte en midlertidig stopper for lufthavnens udvikling, men siden krigens slutning i 1945, er der sket en rivende udvikling. Fra 6.000 starter og landinger i 1932 til knap 258.000 i 2007.

Københavns Lufthavn ligger på Amager, 8 kilometer sydøst for Københavns centrum, og består af tre terminaler: Terminal 1 til indenrigsflyvninger og terminal 2 og 3 til udenrigsflyvninger. Lufthavnen er Nordens største lufthavn med 20.877.496 passagerer i 2006 og 21.409.526 passagerer i 2007. Se link: List of the largest airports in the Nordic countries.

Der findes to store parallelle start- og landingsbaner i retningen sydvest/nordøst (022). Hertil kommer en mindre sydøst/nordvest, der anvendes i mindre omfang - dels fordi vindretningen er mindre hyppig, dels fordi den går ind over København. Området er indhegnet, men der er en vej rundt om anlægget, så bl.a. flyspottere får en rimelig mulighed for at observere lettende og landende fly.
