A dream of an aircraft at Frankfurt-Hahn Airport

Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, 8th December 2002. The largest heavy load transporter in the world, the Antonov AN 225 Myria (Myria means dream), landed for the first time at Frankfurt-Hahn Airport on Saturday. With 90 tonnes of cargo on board, it took off on Sunday for Montreal in Canada with a refuelling stop in Shannon. The charter company is Chapman Freeborn Airmarketing GmbH of Frankfurt, which had brought cargo from different customers for shipment. For the greater part, this comprised particularly large and heavy machinery and spare parts for ships, which represents the ideal cargo for this large-volume aircraft. With its giant cargo hold, it is predestined for large items of freight. The largest item of cargo was 3.20 metres high and could not be loaded by conven-tional means. The two heaviest items each weighed 15 tonnes and the longest component was 9.40 metres in length.


Jobs for the region

Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, 18th November 2002. The course followed by the Rhine-land Pfalz state government, together with Fraport AG, of expanding the former Hahn air force base into a flourishing commercial location in order to create jobs in an otherwise weakly structured region is showing extraordinary success. While jobs are being lost elsewhere, Frankfurt-Hahn Airport is becoming more and more an employment generator for the region. This is shown by an investigation carried out by the institution A & O Arbeitsmarkt- und Organisationsberatung Gettmann, the results of which were presented today in the presence of Minister of Labour, Malu Dreyer, and Employment Office Director, Dr. Voelkel.
