Billund Airport Reviews

airportWhat do we actually know about Denmark? The Danish nationals being outspoken and punctual? The country with the  oldest state flag in the world still in use by an independent nation (1219)? Or, more commonly being visited  and known due to Legoland Billund, Tivoli Gardens, and the Little Mermaid.? Sure, Denmark has a lot to offer when it comes to tourism, but the question is how do they handle the number of passengers coming in and out of their country?

Having said that, transportation means had been essential not only to Denmark, but around the world. With the the Danish country’s top destinations, let us find out one of the airports in Denmark. In this review, let’s talk about Billund Airport (BLL).

Aesthetics

As the key international airport of Denmark, passenger volume sure is a big thing in BLL. But, they don’t even fret about this since Billund Airport has several airport facilities throughout the airport. Everyone will eventually start with an information desk and tourist information counter which are located in the terminal building. There are plenty of restrooms located around the airport, but showers are unfortunately not available.

To stay connected, free WiFi is available at BLL. Travellers just have to connect to the “FREEinternetBLL” network. Though, the bandwidth or usage download is a maximum of 1 Mbit/s per client. Public telephones are also available within the terminal.

Directions

For a sense of direction by driving, from the centre of Billund, follow Nordmarksvej north past Legoland before turning right onto Båstlundvej. The airport will be directly at your right hand side. But, if you prefer taking public transportation, numerous bus services stop at the airport, running from destinations all over western Denmark. And, cabs are also readily available immediately outside the airport.

One customer even said:
“This airport has been my home airport for a long time. This is the airports that I have flown in/out from most – and I generally enjoy Billund Airport.

The terminal is bright, airy and very enjoyable. The ground staff is, for the most part, very smily – and there are always a homely feeling to the service. You feel like a friend to them rather than a customer, in a good way of course.”

  1. Travelled from HKG to FRA then to Billund for a business trip. A tiny airport with insufficient facilities. A serious lack of staff while they were not helpful at all already. Self check-in machines available but not enough assistance at all. Medium length queues but moving very slowly.
