Copenhagen Malmö Port is to build a fourth cruise terminal to help it cater to increasing passenger demand in Denmark’s capital city.
To be located beyond the current Oceankaj in Ydre Nordhavn, the new Terminal 4 will be able to handle more than 5,000 passengers per cruise ship call. The facility is expected to be open to the public in 2020.
“A new terminal, designed for more than 5,000 passengers, will enable us to receive more and bigger ships in future,” said Barbara Scheel Agersnap, CEO of Copenhagen Malmö Port. “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.”
Copenhagen Malmö Port will host turnaround calls from 55 ships and around 850,000 cruise passengers in 2017.
“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,” said Arnt Møller Pedersen, COO of Cruise and Ferries at Copenhagen Malmö Port.
