Aarhus Airport (AAR) Information

(Aarhus, Denmark)

German soldiers originally constructed Aarhus Airport during WWII, but the facility remained unused until it welcomed its first civilian flights in the latter years of the 1940s. Despite the airport's distance from the seaside Jutland city of Aarhus, roughly 600,000 passengers pass through its single terminal each year.

This airport currently supplies non-stop Scandinavian Airlines flights to Copenhagen, Ryanair flights to Malaga and London, EuroLOT flights to Gdansk, and British Airways flights to Gothenburg, Oslo and Stockholm. Seasonal connections to Alicante and Girona (Spain), and Moss (Norway) are also available, in addition to numerous charter services.

The terminal boasts a maximum capacity of two million passengers per year. Yet passengers wishing to access many international destinations will need to fly from the bigger Billund Airport, just under 100 km / 62 miles away. Aarhus is the biggest city on Denmark's Jutland peninsula and ranks just behind Copenhagen on the list of Denmark's most populous cities.
