Themes / Travel trends
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.
Medium-size and smaller airports in Germany
Germany´s five largest airports are spread quite evenly over the whole country and help more than 150 million travelers to reach their destinations (Frankfurt, Munich, Düsseldorf, Berlin-Tegel, Hamburg).
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.
Germany's Rhine-Ruhr region: home for 10 million people
The Rhine-Ruhr Region is one of the most densely populated areas of Germany. Rhine and Ruhr are two rivers which are surrounded by many interconnected larger cities in a kind of supercity. More than 10 million people live here.
Aviation passenger rights in Europe
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. While this does not sound like a huge number we should care about too much – one has to consider that this is just an average.
The Balearic islands: each Balearic island as a touristic hotspot in the Mediterranean
The Balearic Islands have been a popular travel destination among Germans and British tourists for decades. It all started in the 1960s when a new, huge airport was built, paving the way for massive growth in the touristic sector.
The fresh breeze of the country – Hamburg, Bremen, Hanover
Germany´s numerous states are all quite different from each other. Take southern Bavaria and Lowe Saxony in the north for instance and you will notice huge discrepancies in many cultural and also geographical dimensions. Some stereotypes about Germany are of regional origin and don´t apply at all to the majority of the country.
Transition from Berlin Tegel to a new 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 (TXL) Airport. 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.
London's airports: transporting more than 180 million passengers per year
When travelers book their first flight to London, they might wonder about the number of available airports. In total, there are six international airports to choose from when traveling to England´s capital.
