About The Airport
Aalborg Airport is third largest and the fastest-growing airport in Denmark – we service the market from central Jutland northwards which covers approximately 3.1 million potential passengers. We are looked upon as the natural gateway due to our easy access by car and national train. With our free car parking and direct railway to the airport, we even attract passengers from southern Denmark and the southern part of Norway due to our location and services.
Aalborg is an international city and more global companies are settling here due to the benefits of the region and the route network Aalborg Airport has. One of the biggest organisations in Aalborg city is the University, with over 25 per cent foreign employees and students from all over the world.
The region is home to many different industries, including food, wind/offshore/oil sector, engineering, IT, fashion and tourism.

The region attracts people from all over the world due to its food, culture, beaches, history and nature.
The airport is focussed on looking at partnerships and developing the business together for the benefit of all parties. Our region is very loyal towards our product and supports all the initiatives we do.
