German airports and their reliance
In 2016 European airports processed roughly 10 million flights in total. About 10 percent of those connections experienced flight delays with an average of approximately 17 minutes.
Berlin's transition to a super-hub and other airports in Eastern Germany
Berlin is the only place in the eastern part of Germany with a large-scale international airport - Berlin Tegel Airport (TXL). The other airports outside of Berlin are much smaller, with Leipzig / Halle Airport (LEJ) and Dresden Airport (DRS) being the only ones with more than one million passengers per year.
The largest airports of Germany
Frankfurt Airport (FRA) is by far the largest among Germany´s many airports. More than 60 million passengers passed through this important hub in 2016. Its current capacity is around 65 million which means there is some margin left for further growth.
