    Aarhus Airport currently has one passenger terminal which dates back to 1981. It has been subsequently renovated in 2007-9 and 2016. Being originally a military airport, the terminal itself is quite small. The airport opens 90 minutes before the first flight arrival and closes 30 minutes after the last arrival. This contemporary terminal is bright and airy, providing a functional environment from which you can catch your flight.

    Airport Facilities

    Being a small airport, it is advised to bring a tablet or something to entertain you during your wait. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the airport terminal. Along with the standard departure and arrival facilities you’d expect from an airport, such as, check-in desks, baggage reclaim belts, security gates, departure lounge and an arrivals hall, the airport also has duty free shopping.

    A small selection of restaurants and cafes are available. Opening times vary, but are generally between 7am and 8pm, closing as early as 3pm on Saturdays. You’ll be able to order healthy options, sandwiches, salads and various hot foods. A conference room is available, next to the restaurant, fully equipped with business equipment.

    If you’d like to unwind before your flight, then the airport provides the Garden Room. Here you are able to sit in the garden and surround yourself with lush flowers, rippling water and fresh air.

    How to get to and from Aarhus Airport

    Although a rental car from Aarhus Airport is a great idea for getting around, the airport is also well serviced by the local transport network. A dedicated airport shuttle bus service exists to the city of Aarhus – with stops along the way. Tickets can be purchased on board. There is no predefined schedule for buses – they operate based on the airline arrival times. This means that the bus will wait for your flight to arrive even if late. Although this is a great advantage, it does however mean that you only have 30 minutes once your flight arrives to catch the bus. Just enough time to collect your bags and get through security.

    There also exists a scheduled bus service to Randers and Ebeltoft. Known as route 212, the bus departs on a pre-defined timetable every 15 minutes.

    A taxi rank is available outside the terminal. It is important to discuss with the driver the estimated costs before setting off on your journey. In addition you can also hire a limousine or a professional car at the airport. We would however, advise on a car hire at Aarhus Airport instead due to its simplicity.

    Parking tips

    There are a total of 1,300 car parking spaces located at the airport. A total of three car parks exist – P1, P2 & P3 respectively. Theses car parks are for long-term use and tickets can be booked in advance through online, 48 hours beforehand, by App or locally at a pay booth. The airport also offers free parking for up to 5 hours for individuals picking up and dropping of passengers. The car parks are secure, modern and located near the main terminal.

    There are numerous locations in the city in which to park. In central Aarhus you can park close to the main shopping district. Parking is also available near the sea front - ideal for visiting local tourist attractions. On-street parking is often metered and in operation between 9am to 7pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to 4 pm Saturday. Secure city car parking garages are available throughout and are charged hourly.
