  • EKYT – Aalborg Airport


  • Operational information short

    Aalborg airport is the main airport serving Nothern-Jutland. Located in beautiful surroundings alongside the Fjord it is a mix of Civil and Millitary airport, splitting it in two. Originally named after the city Ytringe, to which it is situated close to, the code of EKYT was later designated as "Yellow Target" due to the recognizable yellow dots at each runway beginning for military operations. Now it is the third busiest airport in Denmark, serving regular airlines as well as plenty of charter flights, so the imagination is the limit when choosing destinations out of Aalborg
