Hamburg Airport is the largest international airport in northern Germany, and the fifth largest in Germany overall. Incorporating Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein and parts of Lower Saxony, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Denmark, Hamburg Airport’s large catchment area, with its substantial passenger potential, is extremely interesting for all airlines. Hamburg Airport is equipping itself to face the challenges of the future of aviation with a modern infrastructure.
The airport is only eight kilometers from downtown Hamburg, which means short journeys for passengers. Extensively linking northern Germany to the core regions and cities of Europe is Hamburg Airport's great strength. The spectrum of destinations is diverse.
For both business and private travellers, the airport offers a large number of attractive direct connections. Passengers and visitors are equally welcome guests at Hamburg Airport.
