Copenhagen airport is converting two of its three runways as aircraft parking.

The operator says it expects an important number of aircraft to be parked at the Danish capital hub “before long”, and that the parking issue is a “pressing challenge”.

It will maintain flight access by keeping a single runway, 22L/04R, in operation for departures and arrivals.

Scandinavian carrier SAS is among the primary users of the airport. The airline is shutting down in response to the coronavirus situation.
