By plane

Billund airport [1] is one of Denmark's biggest airports. Cimber Sterling Airlines [2] is based at Billund and flies to and from Billund to 15 destinations. The airport is served by many budget- and charter airlines, there are also flights by some national carriers like Finnair [3], SAS Scandinavian Airlines [4] and KLM [5], Ryanair also now offers cheap flights to Billund.
