The Board of Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) has given the go-ahead to the port to build a new cruise terminal in Copenhagen.

Expected to open in 2020, the terminal will be located beyond the current Oceankaj in Ydre Nordhavn and will be able to handle more than 5,000 passengers per call.

As explained, the decision to construct a new cruise facility comes due to a “constantly rising demand.” To be able to cope with the increasing interest, CMP has made the assessment that current facilities need to be augmented with another terminal building, Terminal 4.

“A new terminal, designed for more than 5,000 passengers, will enable us to receive more and bigger ships in future,” Barbara Scheel Agersnap, CEO of Copenhagen Malmö Port, commented.

In 2017, 55 ships, each with more than 4,000 passengers on board, visited CMP in what are known as turnaround calls. The total number of cruise passengers arriving during the season will be around 850,000 people.

“This decision gives us the opportunity to create a modern, attractive terminal that can efficiently handle a large number of passengers wanting to visit Copenhagen in future,” Arnt Møller Pedersen, COO, Cruise & Ferries, Copenhagen Malmö Port AB, said.
