News from Aalborg Airport: Two new destinations on the schedule

by Megan McPhee Christensen

As usual, October 2021 marked the transition from the summer to winter flight schedule at Aalborg Airport, introducing two new international routes to Stockholm and Kaunas.

Altogether, 118,214 people travelled to and from Aalborg Airport in October this year, about 90% of the passenger numbers there were in October 2019.

The number of passengers travelling to and from Aalborg Airport continues to rise – with the numbers for October 2021 up 3.4% from September 2021, where there were 114,293. This is due to the continued high domestic travel and increasing international travel activity.

Two new big cities are on the schedule from Aalborg Airport

In the weekend leading up to the school’s autumn break, the winter flight schedule started and brought many happy holiday-goers through the terminal en route to, for example, the Canary Islands.

At the end of October, the airline companies’ new route schedule also commenced, expanding with two new routes to big European cities.

“The positive development in international traffic continues into the winter schedule. We can look forward to two new routes that will continue year-round, to Stockholm and Kaunas, where there are three and two weekly departures, respectively, perfect for a business meeting or a city getaway.

Beyond that, Ryanair is also swapping their Saturday departure to London for a Sunday departure, which is perfect for leisure travellers that can now enjoy a long weekend Christmas shopping in London,” says Airport Director Niels Hemmingsen.

Huge demand for flights to Copenhagen and Bornholm

In line with the rise in corporate travel activity toward pre-pandemic levels, people travelling for leisure have also made frequent use of the many travel options to Copenhagen and Bornholm.

“When we look at domestic traffic, the number of passengers have now been over 2019-levels for the fourth month in a row, where there were 7.5% more domestic passengers than in 2019.

That testifies to the demand that people are seeking inexpensive and easy leisurely trips across Denmark.

There are still 20 daily departures to Copenhagen, which make up the vast majority of domestic travel, but Bornholm has also been popular. There are also departures around Christmas and New Year, and the summer flights are already on sale with 3-4 weekly departures from mid-March”, finishes Niels Hemmingsen.
