While Danes still fly when they need to get from country to country, one out of three travellers over the past three years has decided against flying when getting around inside of Denmark. Figures from Trafikstyrelsen, the national traffic authority, show that high ticket prices, increased auto sales and the recession have combined to stop people from flying domestically. Major expansions in motorways and pending investments in the rail system have industry analysts suggesting that even fewer people will opt to fly in the future, and that could cause some domestic airports to close. Figures from the first six months of this year show that the number of travellers the five largest Jutland airports has fallen by 11 percent. – Berlingske
