Aarhus Airport awarded Airport of the Year


On Wednesday night, Aarhus Airport had great reason to celebrate when the airport was awarded the 'Airport of the Year Award' by the European Regions Airline Association (ERA). The award recognizes that during the year the airport achieved amazing results that had a positive impact on European air transport.

“We are incredibly proud of this recognition. It shows that we have succeeded in our growth strategy, which has, among other things, offered a comprehensive remodeling of the airport with a new design and food and beverage concept. At the same time, we have focused heavily on increasing passenger growth by expanding the route network. With the great title as Airport of the Year, we will proudly continue the development of the airport for the benefit of our guests, ”says Peer H. Kristensen, Director of Aarhus Airport.

Previous winners of the award include London City, Budapest and Shannon Airport in Ireland. This year, Aarhus Airport can join the list of winners selected from all ERA airport members by an independent judging panel.

ERA Director General, Montserrat Barriga, said: “On behalf of ERA, I would like to congratulate Aarhus Airport on its achievement of winning the ERA Airport of the Year Award at this year’s ERA General Assembly. Aarhus Airport clearly demonstrated a significant commercial and operational turnaround this year, modernising its airport facilities, expanding its destinations and increasing its passenger numbers, as well the major task of changing the airport’s structure to a more dynamic commercial business model. This accolade demonstrates the airport’s continued high-quality standards to existing and potential customers.”

In 2016, Aarhus Airport became the first Danish airport to join ERA - a non-profit organization that takes care of European aviation interests for 50 airlines as well as 150 associated members across the European aviation industry.
