Aarhus Airport opens first in-airport hotel in Denmark


Travelers and aviation personnel can now walk dry-shod between the hotel door and the departure or arrival hall at Aarhus Airport. The airport is opening Denmark's first airport hotel, which is directly integrated into the terminal, on March 1st.

Early flights can cause travel stress. The alarm clock rings unreasonably early, the kids are reluctant to leave their beds, and the taxi is taking its time. From March 1st, you can bid farewell to all the negative travel fever and wake up directly at Aarhus Airport.

As part of the airport’s total modernization and expansion, a first floor has been built on the terminal building. This is where the new hotel is located, offering 37 double rooms, including one accessible room, with access via stairs or an elevator from the terminal. The rooms are arranged in rows with a corridor spanning the arrival and departure entrances. They are decorated in Scandinavian style with private bathrooms, modern amenities, comfortable beds, and free Wi-Fi.

“The hotel is part of the effort to upgrade Aarhus Airport as an international airport. We frequently have aviation personnel who land late and need to stay overnight before departing early the next morning. Previously, the flight crew would typically make the trip into Aarhus, but now they can simply go upstairs and crawl under the covers. Additionally, travelers with early departures can avoid the morning stress by checking into the hotel the night before and waking up just minutes away from check-in,” says Lars Rønnov, HR and Commercial Director at Aarhus Airport.

The hotel is also suitable for busy business travelers, project workers, or families from afar who want to explore attractions such as Mols Bjerge National Park, Djurs Sommerland, Ree Park Safari, or the town of Ebeltoft. The hotel operates as a digital or self-service hotel. Once guests have booked directly on Aarhus Airport’s website or through a booking portal, they receive a digital key – a passcode that unlocks the room door. This means guests can access their rooms at any time of the day. Breakfast or dinner can be ordered as room service or enjoyed at the MIB Aarhus Airport restaurant before departure for those with boarding passes.

Although the hotel doesn’t have a traditional reception, human assistance is never far away. Hotel guests are always welcome at the Passenger Service if additional help is needed.
