I will be travelling by Öresundståg from Copenhagen airport to Helsingborg on Friday 1 June and then back again from Helsingborg to Copenhagen airport on Sunday 3 June.
I'm very worried about these ID / border controls causing delays on the train. From what I have seen on the Internet, people can be forced off the train to undergo ID / border controls and these controls can cause a delay where the train skips Copenhagen airport and stops at Tårnby, and passengers have to take another train back to the airport.
This won't be so much a problem when going to Helsingborg as I can arrive a few hours later, but when coming back it's important that I don't miss my flight. The train is supposed to come to the airport three and a half hours before my flight leaves. I am worried that if the train skips the airport and I have to take another train back I'll miss my flight.
Are these controls still being done? From what I have seen from Öresundståg's website, they are done only when going to Sweden, when coming back to Denmark there are no controls any more. Does that mean the train will go on schedule?
I've found plenty of articles on the Internet about Öresundståg skipping the airport but these are from 2016. That was two years ago. Does this mean that now that there apparently are no controls being done when coming back to Denmark, the trains stop at the airport as normal?
I'm not worried about the controls as such, as I'm a Nordic citizen and have a valid passport. What I'm worried about is that they might cause me to miss my train connections and most importantly, miss my flight back home.
