Tight Connection in Copenhagen

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, if not could the mods please move?

We are looking at a flight from Rome to Seattle that stops in Copenhagen. The first leg is with SAS. In Copenhagen we switch to a United flight. It is a one hour layover. Is that enough time to catch the United flight? Does anyone know if we will have to go through security in Copenhagen?

Thanks,
jb

You have plenty of time; this is well within standard connection time in CPH. CPH is great for connections. No security from Rome to Seattle, just passport control which is quick. There is a security check travelling in the opposite direction, but this is usually quick as well.

And you will be flying SAS on both legs; the UA flight CPH-SEA is a SAS codeshare, on SK metal.

You don't have to go through security when arriving from Rome, and 1hr should be enough.

And btw: you will not connect to a United flight as they don't fly to CPH....all "United" flights operating to/from CPH are SK-codeshare

No worries - only catch is late arrival from Rome - but that risk is always there. Min connection time in CPH is 45min. No security hassles - you may have an extra security screening at the gate, but that will take place AFTER you have handed over your boarding pass - and SK will not leave with you in teh gate area.
