Political allies clash over Aarhus airport

A proposal by Aarhus mayor Jacob Bundsgaard (Socialdemokraterne) to share that city’s airport code with Billund Airport is not sitting well with members of his own party.

The move would make it easier to travel to Aarhus by allowing flight ticket search engines to consider flights ending in the more heavily travelled Billund Airport, some 100 kilometres away, as flights to Aarhus.

But Ango Winther (Socialdemokraterne), who is the airport’s chairman, argued that doing so would rob Tistrup Airport of its identity as the city’s airport.

Other city officials and business leaders were split on the issue. – JP Aarhus
