Aarhus Airport is located in northeast Jutland (Denmark’s main land mass), around 36 km (30 minutes) from the city of Aarhus.
One passenger terminal handles about 650,000 passengers per year and operates flights to both domestic and European destinations, with about 100 destinations served in total.
The airport has an overall annual capacity for two million travelers and is also close to Feldballe, Horstved, Krarup, Stabrand and Tirstrup.
Aarhus Airport features three main airlines, including Denmark’s very own Sun Air of Scandinavia. Daily direct flights operate between 06:00 and 22:00, flying to Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, and London, where passengers can connect to other foreign destinations.
Transportation to the airport or to the city:
• By taxi: Taxis are never missed when they are needed. You won’t even have a time to blink when a taxi will stop right in front of you. Generally, there are taxis waiting outside the terminal building. The fare is around 300 DKK (€ 41) and takes approximately 30 minutes to get to Aarhus or the other way around.
• By bus: Taxis are quite expensive, especially when you consider you could get the same service much cheaper if you agreed to put some efforts too.
Yes, you will have to raise your bag, which is most probably very heavy, and you will have to carry it all the way, but buses are the most affordable way of getting to the city or the airport.
There is an airport bus service that takes passengers from the airport to Aarhus and back, the service is available 24 hours a day. Also, route 212 between Ebeltoft and Randers stops at the airport.
• Car rental: Airports are the gate to the city. They are the first buildings that tourists come across, and naturally the first impression is also formed here. This is why you will usually find every necessary thing or service right at the airport.
Car rental companies are only one part of those services. Once you land on Aarhus Airport you can rent a car from Hertz, Avis, SIXT, Europcar and Budget car rental companies. For no further problems, check in with them before getting on the plane. Some points may be closed if your arrival is in the middle of the night.
The airport’s two car parks, P1 and P2, contain more than 1,000 spaces for vehicles. Short-term parking in P1 costs €0.80 per hour, €8 per day and €32 per week. Car park P2, which is slightly farther from the terminal, is designed for long-term parking.
There, rates are €0.67 per hour, €6.70 per day and €23.50 per week.
Essential facilities include a bureau De change and several ATMs.
The airport’s Euroshop sells duty-free spirits and tobacco products, plus an extensive selection of regular goods including cosmetics and fragrances; beer, wine and spirits; chocolate and confectionery; toys and gifts; Christmas ornaments; and porcelains from Royal Copenhagen.
If you have forgotten to get someone a present, it’s the right time to purchase a souvenir or a small gift. You can not only concentrate before your flight, but will also save money, as all products in this shop are tax free.
A café offers light meals and drinks. For business travelers, meeting rooms accommodating up to 50 persons can be reserved by telephoning the business center. Wireless Internet access is available at the airport as well.
You can even do business at the Aarhus Airport. There is a conference hall not too far away from the restaurant. It is meant for 8-50 people. This makes it easy to solve last minute business issues but it would be much better and safe if you booked the hall prior to your visit.
