Roskilde Airport , officially known as Copenhagen Airport, Roskilde ( ), is located 4 nautical miles (7 km) southeast of Roskilde near the town Tune. It was opened in 1973 as the first of three planned relief airports around Copenhagen. These plans were shelved shortly after, and the two other relief airports never made it past the planning stage. The airport is owned and operated by Københavns Lufthavne A/S (Copenhagen Airports) which also operates Copenhagen's major airport at Kastrup. The airport had 25,053 passengers in 2003.

Operational facilities include:

* ILS approach for runways 11 and 21

* GPS approach for runways 03 and 11

* Fuel: 100LL and Jet A1

* De-icing capability

* Fire fighting category 5, 6 and 7 (on prior notice)

* Met office and ATIS

* Parking and hangar facilities

* Aircraft repairs and overhaul

The airport is open around the clock and has immigration and customs facilities for international traffic, but it is used primarily for taxi, business, and training flights and the airport serves as base for several flights schools. It is home to more than half of the Danish fleet of GA-aircraft.

Bus and train services from around the country to the nearby town of Roskilde are extensive, but bus services to and from the airport are infrequent due to its limited use, and the primary means of getting to/from the airport is by own car or taxi.
