The 10 domestic air routes in Denmark are investigated. The traffic volumes, the fares, the number of departures and the travel times are given. The airport hinterlands are analysed. The average hinterland is only 4,000 km2, the air traffic carries 10-40 pc of all intercity passengers, mainly business trips. A traffic forecast is given for the number of passengers by air, when a large bridge-tunnel has been built. Theoretical location models are given to find out the ideal number of airports and locations. The network is a tree (star) with Copenhagen as center. Large aircraft and remote airfields should not be used. Distance between airports should be more than 80 km. Each airport should have a volume of more than 10,000 passengers-year.
