Roskilde Airport is a small and exclusive airport at an attractive location near Copenhagen.

Roskilde Airport is located eight kilometres south of Roskilde, between the towns of Gadstrup and Tune. The airport lies 40 kilometres from the Copenhagen city centre and 45 kilometres from Copenhagen Airport at Kastrup.

The airport is owned and operated by Copenhagen Airports A/S (CPH), a company listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. Copenhagen Airport at Kastrup is its primary business area, but CPH is also involved in international activities through its investments in Newcastle International Airport in the UK, Meilan Airport in China and Rygge Civil Airport in Norway and nine Mexican airports.

Roskilde Airport formally opened on 1 April 1973. The decision to build an airport near Roskilde was in part based on plans to build a new major airport on the island of Saltholm in the Øresund plus three satellite airports. These plans were later abandoned, and Roskilde Airport is the only one of the three satellite airports that materialised.

Roskilde Airport is the domicile of about 30 companies and the workplace of about 300 people. The 1200-square-metre terminal building includes a café, an airport office, a meteorological service and administrative offices.

Roskilde Airport has two runways: Runway 03/21 is 1,500 metres long and 32 metres wide, whilst Runway 11/29 is 1,799 metres long and 32 metres wide. The total area of the airport is 4.5 square kilometres.
