Continuing progress may mean that Aalborg Airport may well be on par with Billund airport in terms of passenger numbers within 18 months or so.
In June Billund Airport had 255,000 passengers whereas there were 132,000 passengers in Aalborg. A few years ago, Aalborg had approx 40 per cent of the passenger numbers of Billund, but now the North Jutland airport is over 50% and rising!
Director of Aalborg airport, Soren Svendsen, doesn't deny the airports ambitions.
"We will be as big as Billund. We are using our capacity 100 percent. So we must consider expanding"says the airport director.
In the past five years, Aalborg Airport recruited 100 new employees and doubled the number of passengers. And if this trend continues, it accounts so to Aalborg Airport in about one and a half years can call himself the country's second largest airport.
The two airports are about two and half hours drive away from each other.
