Billund Airport 2009 Passengers Down

During the first six months of 2009, Billund Airport lost over 10% of its passengers compared to last year. Despite being home to Legoland, Denmark Billund which is Denmark's second biggest airport has lost passengers in all sectors - in part due to the loss of Sterling Airlines. There are flights to Billund from Cimber Sterling, BA, KLM and Ryanair among others - though curiously the airport is not served by the Scandinavian flag carrier SAS.

In July 2009 Billund had 282,000 passengers a reduction of approximately 33,000 compared to last year, according to recent figures from Denmark's second largest airport.
Thebiggest decline was in domestic traffic which fell by 17% to 10,000, charter traffic was down 13% to 131,000, while traffic on international routes fell 8% to 139,000.
