Frankfurt Hahn

Frankfurt Hahn Airport

From the American military airfield to the international commercial airport: Since its civil operation in 1993, Frankfurt-Hahn Airport has developed into an important aviation location. The business model is based on the two strong pillars of passenger and air freight. Frankfurt-Hahn is the tenth largest German passenger airport: Around 1.5 million passengers used the international airport in Rhineland-Palatinate in 2019. In the cargo business, more than 170,000 tons of freight were handled in 2019.

The state of Rhineland-Palatinate has successfully used the opportunities that have arisen since 1990 through the opening of several military airfields as part of the conversion program and will continue to use them. A high point of this development was April 22, 1999: At that time a passenger plane of the Irish airline Ryanair landed for the first time at a place in Rhineland-Palatinate that hardly anyone knew until then. In fact, with this historic date, a new era of air travel was ushered in for the whole of Germany: that of low-cost flying. Today, Frankfurt-Hahn is synonymous with the first and most consistently managed low-cost airport in Germany.

About us

Efficient and cost-conscious - in all areas

With the establishment of Irish Ryanair in April 1999, Frankfurt-Hahn implemented the efficient business model of the low-cost airline at the airport level. In a nutshell, this means: efficiency and minimizing costs in all areas. In detail it means: efficient operational processes and thus fast check-in, short distances, fast turnaround times and high punctuality rate. In addition to Ryanair, other airlines and charter airlines have settled here. Over 30 attractive holiday destinations are now served from Hahn.

Turnstile in the middle of the "blue banana"

At the same time, Frankfurt-Hahn is one of the few international airports in Germany with an unrestricted 24-hour operating permit. This offers growth opportunities, especially for the freight business: Hahn has been one of the most important freight bases worldwide for years. More than 90 percent of the cargo volume in Germany is handled via just five airports. One of them is Frankfurt-Hahn Airport. It is located in the middle of one of the most important economic areas in Europe: the area of ​​the so-called “Blue Banana”, which stretches across Europe from Marseille via Switzerland, West Germany and Benelux to London. Among other things, "the Hahn" has been awarded the "Air Cargo Award of Excellence" seven times since 2006. The quality of the handling was primarily assessed.

Airport location with many plus points

In addition to the night flight permit and the convenient location, the Hunsrück Airport scores with further advantages in the international aviation industry: A 3,800 meter long runway, an instrument landing system that enables safe flight operations even in bad weather, as well as good ones Road connections to the surrounding economic and population centers speak in favor of Frankfurt-Hahn Airport. Around 5.5 million people live within a radius of 100 kilometers and can comfortably reach the airport in 90 minutes.
