There are two parallel runways. These were created parallel to the fairway of the ships. As a result, the noise pollution in the center of Copenhagen and in its suburbs was reduced. In addition, there is a runway that crosses the other two. It is mainly used as a 'taxiway' for planes that land on the sea side. Landing or take-off traffic (inland) on the third runway must not take place in bad weather. The population density would make the surrounding population too dangerous. Also no night flights are allowed to take place on this runway. The apron has a total of 54 parking positions, nine of which are for domestic flights and 43 for international connections.
