The Board of the Copenhagen Malmö Port has given a green light to building a cruise facility in the Danish capital, to be located beyond the Oceankaj in Ydre Nordhavn.
According to the plans, works should finish in 2020, and the new terminal will be able to take care of 5,000 passengers per call.
"A new terminal, designed for more than 5,000 passengers, will enable us to receive more and bigger ships in future. With this development, we are making sure that Copenhagen retains and develops its position as the leading cruise destination in Northern Europe. We look forward to continuing to attract passengers to the attractive city of Copenhagen through close collaboration with various partners and actors in the city," Barbara Scheel Agersnap, CEO, Copenhagen Malmö Port, said.
Arnt Møller Pedersen, COO, Cruise & Ferries, Copenhagen Malmö Port, added, "This decision gives us the opportunity to create a modern, attractive terminal that can efficiently handle the large number of passengers wanting to visit Copenhagen in future."
