by Nathalia Hentze Nielsen

On December 21st, eager travelers in Aalborg got an early Christmas present.

Aalborg Airport announced that they’ll offer direct flights to New York starting April 27th, 2023.

With three weekly departures you’ll get plenty of opportunities to visit the City That Never Sleeps but of course it also means that Americans get a chance to experience Aalborg.

The American magazine Forbes hasn’t missed this piece of travel news either, and they have researched our lovely city in order to make a small travel piece. 

In the article, the journalist writes that Aalborg is a “charming” city and highlights that the region is popular due to its historical tourism and due to the fact that it’s a gateway to the rest of North Jutland.

He specifically mentions Aalborg Zoo, Aalborghus Castle, and Utzon as attractions that are worth visiting.

Hopes that the route will attract many tourists

The mayor of Aalborg, Thomas Kastrup-Larsen, has also spotted the article and writes on his Facebook page that it’s:

“Fantastic that Aalborg is being marketed in Forbes in the United States.

The new direct route between Aalborg and New York attracts lots of interest.

I have big hopes that the route will attract many American tourists to Aalborg and North Jutland.”

The tickets to New York cost from 2,799 kroner for a roundtrip, and you can book them here.
