    Background: It was opening day for
    another set of European jet-age air facilities when Visnews filmed the new air
    terminal in Copenhagen Jan 17. Part of the SAS 22-storey Royal Hotel now under
    construction the terminal includes Europe's first Electronic Reservations
    System.

    The section now completed also has a complete travel bureau, bank, car-hire
    service, hairdressers, bar and a garage for 120 cars.

    Kastrup Airport is being prepared full speed for the requirements of
    jet-airliner traffic. New runways are necessary for the 16 French Caravelle jets
    scheduled to fly between 24 cities in 17 European and Middle East countries from
    May 15.

    With the introduction of the 516-mph Rolls Royce powered Caravelle, SAS will
    provide jet service to more cities than any other airline. Flying time will be
    cut by more than one-third.
