We used often to visit Aspire Lounge in Helsinki Airport which is also our base. That means we like their service and facilities. However, visiting Aspire Lounge in Copenhagen was quite a different experience. Read more to discover, how?

Copenhagen Airport

Copenhagen Airport is the busiest airport in Nordic countries. It is located on the island of Ameger close to Sweden. Reaching Copenhagen Centre from the airport takes only 15 minutes by a commuter train and Malmö in Sweden can be reached in 30 minutes. The airport is also a popular transfer point and a hub for Scandinavian Airlines and for Norwegian Air Shuttle.

Aspire Lounge by Swissport

Aspire Lounge is operated by a ground service company, Swissport. They have lounges in 16 countries and many of them are called Aspire Lounges. For example, we have also visited Aspire Lounge in Helsinki Airport, which is almost similar to the one in Copenhagen Airport. The lounges are decorated in the same way and they offer similar services.

All Swissport's Executive Lounges are listed on their website.

Location of the Lounge

In Copenhagen Airport, Aspire Lounge is quite simple to find. The lounge is located in the central area of Terminal 2 between piers A and B. However, the central area is big and it has two separate corridors. Aspire Lounge is on the inside corridor further from the tarmac windows. When you approach the lounge, you see clear signs. There are stairs up to the second floor, where the lounge is located.

The view in Aspire Lounge Copenhagen Airport
The view from Aspire Lounge is not special, because the lounge is far from the tarmac. The location is similar to Helsinki's Aspire Lounge.

The lounge is in the Schengen area. In the airport, there is also Terminal 3, which is connected to Terminal 2. Terminal 3 serves mainly non-Schengen flights, but some Schengen flights depart from Gates D in Terminal 3. Reaching Piers A and B from Aspire Lounge is fast but if your flight departs from Pier D, you need to reserve 15 minutes more walking time.

Rating Based on Our Visit

The Easiness to Reach the Lounge

The lounge is well-located in the airport, easy to get to any flight from there. However, there is no elevator to access this lounge.

Drinks_in Aspire Lounge Copenhagen Airport
It may take a few minutes to find the lounge but a good drink selection will be waiting.

Friendliness of the Staff

We were greeted by a very friendly lady staff. While dining, we noticed a constant change in the information about our departure gate. Google and the airport website were suggesting a different gate from what appeared on the information screen inside the lounge. One of us approached the lady receptionist, who was so willing to help in clarifying which one was the right gate. Her friendly and funny personality is a rare gem you won't find in other lounges.

Catering in Aspire Lounge Copenhagen Airport
Catering in Aspire Lounge was at an average level but the customer service was just perfect.


The lounge had a minimalist design. There were many seats available. It was pretty calm during our visit so the place was good for both working and relaxing. However, some of the furniture was worn out and many of the couches were not so comfortable hard chairs. For smokers though, this is a good choice because there is a cabin for smokers. There are toilets for both genders but they require better maintenance. The smelly toilets were uninviting.

Coffee machines in Aspire Lounge Copenhagen Airport
Naturally, Aspire Lounge had coffee machines to serve coffee, special coffee and other warm drinks. Having a cup of coffee in an unwinding environment makes waiting for a flight a pleasant experience.

The lounge had Wi-Fi, flight monitors, and magazines both in Danish and English language. There were no shower services and only a few charging sockets were available. There was no good view from the lounge.

Chairs in the wall in Aspire Lounge Copenhagen Airport
Aspire Lounges are known for these kinds of colourful wall chairs.

Food and Drinks

Aspire Lounge had good drinking options but the food selection was limited. There were only pieces of bread, cheese, hams, meatballs, mushroom soup and some fruits.

Aspire Lounge offered bread with ham, cheese and vegetables. Also, other small snacks and soup were available.

Alcohol in Aspire Lounge Copenhagen Airport
Wine, beer and spirit selection were better than in many other lounges.

Overall Rating

Based on our visit, the lounge was so quiet akin to Helsinki's Aspire lounge and the stay in the lounge was more relaxing compared to having stayed at one of the crowded airport restaurants in CPH. The food selection was fair but not anything special. The drink selection was just fine. The friendly and helpful personnel was one of the best parts of our visit here. Though it would highly recommend to upgrade their worn out furniture and impose better maintenance of their toilet facilities.
