I arrived at a very quiet late morning in front of the nice and modern looking terminal at Aarhus Airport. This small airport is in the middle of nowhere ca. 30 minutes outside Aarhus city center. The airport currently is in the progress of finishing a major update and renovation process.

This is the only temporary entrance to the terminal.

Once inside I was really impressed by the nice and cozy atmosphere - lots of nice woods, daylight, art and nice calming background music playing.

Check In with the freindly agent was done within minutes as was the quick security check without huge lines.

Once airside the whole terminal is even more impressing. There is a huge and nice shops area leading to the gates.

The waiting areas offer great apron views and very nice Scandinavian furniture.

The upper floor is even nicer - the whole area looks like a nice stylish Hotel with lots of nice and cozy seating arrangements and a very nice bar/restaurant serving food and drinks for the whole terminal.

The only aircraft waiting on the apron was a Danish charter Boeing 737 of AirSeven which I did not know before - the livery looks nice.

After a while my SAS ATR 72 bound for Copenhagen landed and parked in front of the windows - looking splendid in the new SAS livery.

The boarding gate at the lower floor was also calm and with a lot of daylight.

Boarding started on time and some free Danish newspapers were available.

A friendly crew was waiting inside and I took my window seat in the modern cabin.

Seat pitch and comfort was totally fine for that short hop.

Soon we started to taxi to the runway and were soon powering away for the very short hop to the Danish capital taking ca. 30 minutes.

Some nice views of the Baltic sea landscape from my wnidow.

A Buy on Board menu was placed in the seatpockets although this is only valid for longer flights.

Still very impressively soon the cabin attendants came around and offered free coffee or tea which was a very nice touch on such a short Domestic flight. Those hot drinks are always free of charge on all SAS scheduled flights.

Soon we were descending passing the Danish capital.

A very nice short hop with free coffee and tea for a 30 minutes flight. Aarhus airport has an amazing terminal feeling like a nice modern Scandinavian Hotel.
