"depressing airport in a depressing town"
P Panagopoulos (United Kingdom)
It's a depressing airport in a depressing town! SAS and Maersk are the only operators using it besides a few private owners and charter airlines. Use it only if you have to! If there's no taxi waiting outside it is difficult to go to the city centre. The only reason this airport exists is to serve passengers who fly abroad especially via CPH.
"very bright clean and well designed"

Amazed to find that this little place gets reviews! I staged through here in April 05 enroute to LHR via CPH. Very bright clean and well designed airport. Good little cafe with interesting local food. All very efficient when I went through.
"extremely clean as is the Danish way"
Kent C Cooper (United Kingdom)
I've been travelling through this airport every week for more than two years. Very easy access (12 min. from downtown Aalborg) right up to main entrance. SAS is really the only game in town once you get in and be prepared for delays on flights to/from Copenhagen (a 35-min. flight). Extremely clean as is the Danish way. Ground staff and crews are helpful enough but to any seasoned traveller this is a backwater airport. Again the SAS AAL-CPH-AAL leg is notorious for delays each week so if you have connecting flights out of CPH plan accordingly. Also upon arrival at AAL there are not always enough taxis waiting outside and you might have to wait a few minutes. Buses run into town on a regular basis but everthing at this small airport - taxis buses kiosk opening hours etc. - are all timed to coincide with arrivals and departures of flights from CPH.
