About the flight ban
The Minister for Transport issues a ban on landing at Danish airports with passengers from certain countries and regions without a negative COVID-19 test.
Commercial and non-commercial operators flying with passengers from an airport located in a country or region that is red at the time of departure (as listed in the annex to the executive order) must not land at Danish airports with passengers from 15 years of age who do not hold a negative COVID-19 test.
It must be a negative COVID-19 PCR test and the test must be taken within 72 hours before the passengers are boarding the aircraft. The detailed requirements for the test can be seen in the flight ban executive order:

The ban only applies to passenger flights from red countries and regions to airports located in Denmark.
The ban does not apply to other commercial flights, including cargo flights and special flights, nor does it apply to crew on commercial flights (both active crew and dead heading crew).
Also, it does not apply to passengers on board an aircraft that only makes a technical stopover and where passengers do not leave the aircraft.
There may be weekly changes to the country list in the appendices to the executive order.
