51 km from Copenhagen Airport

Malmö Airport in Sweden and Copenhagen Airport (CPH) in Denmark are located relatively close to each other, separated by the Öresund Strait. Copenhagen Airport, being one of the largest in the Nordic countries, does have an impact on Malmö Airport's operations. CPH's extensive network of international flights and its status as a major hub often make it a more preferred choice for long-haul and intercontinental travelers. This competition can affect the traffic and the range of destinations served by Malmö Airport. Nonetheless, MMX remains a significant regional airport, catering primarily to domestic and European flights, and serves as an alternative for travelers in the southern part of Sweden.
