Hans Christian Andersen Airport (Danish: Odense Lufthavn, also often referred to as Beldringe Lufthavn) (IATA: ODE, ICAO: EKOD) is a small airport servicing the Danish city of Odense. It is located in the village of Beldringe, north-northwest of the city.
In 2000, a joint venture was established with Plane Station Denmark A/S for operating the facility. The arrangement was later terminated with politicians citing the low number of flights from the facility, and operations were resumed by the county and municipalities.
In 2006, flights commenced between Odense and northern Italy and in 2007, a route operated from Odense to Nîmes, France. There were also flights to Burgas but these were cancelled by Hemus Air citing that the airstrip was too short. Tyrkiet Eksperten cancelled a scheduled route to Turkey citing the same concern.
In 2007, the airstrip was extended to 2,000 meters. In 2008, Falk Lauritsen & Apollo Rejser started weekly summer flights to Chania, Greece with an Airbus A320-200 from Iberworld and Gislev Rejser replaced the Nîmes flight with a route to Béziers, France.
