Aalborg Airport

Aalborg Airport

September 1936 launched Denmark's first domestic route, Aalborg Copenhagen, which over the years has been the greatest.

With three airlines on the route to Copenhagen, and up to 20 daily departures are less air, which makes Dublin a suburb of Copenhagen - or vice versa.

In 1936 it was only 277 passengers, in the winter darkness made it necessary to suspend flights. They were resumed in May the following year and in 1938 passenger numbers had risen to 3651.

At the same time moved the route from the grass in Rørdal to Aalborg municipality new airport, which was not far from the current terminal.

The airport was opened with a folk fest 29 May 1938. According to police, there were as many as 75,000 guests and flyopvisning with 70 civilian and military aircraft. Among the foreign guests was a German count and the pilot who made a loop with a large Condor airliner with swastika on the tail rudder.

During the war turned the German occupation forces the small civilian airport in the largest airborne. Aalborg was vital for the German military, because they could not fly from Germany to occupied Norway without refueling en route.

After the war turned route flight back. SAS came in 1946 when the three Scandinavian countries' airlines were merged and the company has flown at Aalborg-Copenhagen route ever since, only interrupted by brief pauses in the mid-fifties, when passenger numbers plunged. Only in recent years, SAS has been joined by Cimber Air, and now Norwegian also flies the route.
