Germany Airports

Germany has 17 international airports so you can get pretty close to almost anywhere you might be going. Some of these are small such as Munich-Memmingen and used only by budget carriers like Wizz Air or Ryanair.

There’s a pretty good chance though if you’re flying into Germany you’ll be arriving at Frankfurt Airport. It’s the third largest in Europe behind London’s Heathrow and Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. It has 2 terminals where almost 60 million travellers passed through in 2014.

Opened as a commercial airport in 1936 it was a home for zeppelins until the Hindenburg crash a year later. It was used for Luftwaffe bombers during WW2 and extensively destroyed by allied bombing. It was later used during the Berlin airlift to take supplies to the enclave of West Berlin.

The airport is located 12 km from Frankfurt city centre. There are 107 airlines which use Frankfurt Airport, and these fly to 275 destinations in 111 different countries. Each day sees around 1,365 flights. 77% of traffic comes from Lufthansa and its Star Alliance partners. The airport also caters to domestic travel.
