dear friends, can you please tell me if you can access SAS business class lounge at copenhagen airport and main shopping area if you do not have a schegen visa. this means i arrive from a non-schegen country bangkok connecting to non-schegen country london. thanks a lot. regds,27 Aug 2009
So long as your ticket for frequently flyer status enables you, you will get access to the SAS Business Lounge making the transfer you describe, so long as you clear passport control upon arrival into Copenhagen.
Non-schengen flights arrive on piers C and D (a flight from BKK will most likely arrive on pier C). After clearing passport control you will be in the main departure area of the airport (also catering for intra-schengen flights), you will see the SAS Business lounge almost directly ahead of you (slightly to the left, less than 50m walk). Its not a terribly spacious lounge, but there’s normally ample seating for the number of users.27 Aug 2009
thanks a lot for this info. i now know i have to get a schegen visa otherwise i can’t enter the schegen area and use the lounge and go to the shopping area. i was thinking this has changed since CPH has a separate schegen and non-schegen area but based on your reply, this has not. regds,28 Aug 2009
I think you will find that the BKK flight will arrive in a “sealed area”. You will need to clear passport control, so it will depend if you have a European passport. If you do, go through immigration and then straight across to the lounge, if you have any other type of passport – you will need a visa – thus you will remain in the sealed part of the airport as the UK flights leave from here as well.28 Aug 2009
