International connection CPH

I have two separate reservations on Norwegian air. The first is LAX-CPH and then two hours after arrival, CPH-LGW. Norwegian recommended a two hour minimum but I was just wondering about how long it might take to get through customs, pick up our luggage and reboard after checking bags and going through security.

Any idea of how the process works would be helpful.

Am no expert on Copenhagen "transfers", but overall you should be OK, I think. Quickest time from airplane to luggage belt and then arrival/departure hall should normally be around 30 mins or so, but coming from an overseas destination with a lot of luggage on the plane & some possible paper checking will probably mean a bit more.

If there´s a large queue for the GTW departure, you should inform staff by the queue.

Toby, try and post your question on the Air Travel forum. You are more likely to get a response from travelers who have done this type of transfer and can tell you whether you have to go through passport control and customs, or if you can stay in the transit area.

You should also ask Norwegian if it is possible to check your luggage through, even with 2 separate tickets.
