Kastrup is one of the largest international airports in Scandinavia. The airport, which is located about 10 km from Copenhagen, was built in 1925 in the municipality of Thornby. The airport in Copenhagen is considered the main airport for the large Scandinavian airline SAS. In general, the airport serves more than 60 airlines and has flights to more than 110 destinations.
As noted above, the airport was built in 1925. The castle was originally the main building. Later, in 1939, it was decided to erect a new building, which was designed by the architect Wilhelm Lauritzen. They decided to keep the castle, but it was moved about 4 km to the west in order to free the eastern part of the airport for the possibility of expansion.
