Molde Airport, Årø (IATA: MOL, ICAO: ENML) (Norwegian: Molde lufthavn, Årø) is located in the city of Molde in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. It serves Molde and the surrounding district of Romsdal. The airport sits about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) east of the city. After opening in 1972, services have been mainly to Oslo, Bergen, and Trondheim. The airport had 403,150 terminal passengers in 2007.
The Norwegian aviation authorities decided to build two airports in Møre og Romsdal county–one serving Ålesund (Ålesund Airport, Vigra) and one serving Kristiansund (Kristiansund Airport, Kvernberget), but not one in Molde. Molde decided that they also needed an airport and the city financed the airport that was finished in 1972. Braathens S.A.F.E said they would fly if the city built an airport, and were the only airline at the airport until after the deregulation of the airline market, serving with Fokker F-27, Fokker F-28 and Boeing 737. Braathens regional airline Busy Bee and Norwegian Air Shuttle also operated Fokker 50. In 1978, the airport was handed over to the government. A new passenger terminal opened in the early 1990s.
In 2005, the airport got permanent international status, and now has a duty-free shop in the departure area. In 2008, the runway was extended to 1,980 metres (6,500 ft) (LDA) and 2,050 metres (6,730 ft) (TORA), along with other improvements, including an upgrade of the terminal with a new arrival and baggage claim area and a new duty-free shop. Scandinavian Airlines terminated their services to Trondheim on 31 January 2010. Starting on 3 February 2010, Sun Air of Scandinavia started a service with Dornier 328 to Trondheim, operated for Krohn Air.
