Düsseldorf International Airport


The dream of flying inspires the imagination to soar to greater heights. Air travel is as fascinating to holiday goers, who still consider flying somewhat extraordinary, as managers, for whom air travel befits the daily routine as much as the cellular telephone. The same is true for those who work at the airport. Although air travel is a part of daily life for them, working at the airport is always something special.
As one of the most important air traffic intersections in Europe, and Germany's third largest airport, the Dusseldorf International offers it's clients the short way there with an array of flight connections to destinations around the world. The intelligent nexus of rail, road, and air traffic is an important contributing success factor. Located in one of the most densely populated regions in Europe, the airport supplies a brobdingnagian demand of up to 65.000 passengers a day.

As a modern service provider with highly motivated and qualified personnel, we aspire to offer our customers a maximum of comfort, service, and safety. Your satisfaction is our success. We can only justify such high expectations by continually scrutinizing our achievements, inviting dialogue, and developing future-oriented solutions. This is the direction of our corporate ethos.

Düsseldorf International Airport

History:

1927
The Airport is officially opened on April 19th, 1927 by Mayor Robert Lehr. Contracts are then signed by the owners, the Rheinische Bahngesellschaft and the City of Düsseldorf, in September.

1928
The first arial competition takes place in Lohausen. The winner is Gerhard Fieseler.

1933
The Lufthansa hangars are redesigned. Storage rooms and workshops are added. The apron surrounding the passenger handling facility is extended by 2,200 qm. The commercial aircraft Junkers JU 52 ("Tante JU") makes a name for itself in 1932 and is often seen at the Düsseldorf Airport.

1934
The Airport aquires a new transmission/navigation system intended to increase flight safety.

1936
German troops move into the demilitarized Rheinland. The Air Force establishes an air base on the Airport grounds.

1939
The Air Force takes full control of the Airport on September 3, 1939. Civil air traffic grinds to a halt

1944
A large portion of the City is reduced to ruins as a result of the 200 air-raids which occur between 1942 and the end of the war. On December 23, 1944, all three Airport hangars are destroyed by the bombing.

1945
US troops occupy the Airport on April 18, 1945. Control of the Airport is then transferred to the Royal Air Force. The undamaged portions of the infrastructure are used to temporarily house foreigners who had been deported to Germany following the beginning of the war. Later, the City rents some of these rooms to the homeless as well as to small business owners.

1950
On December 1st, British forces return Airport ownership to German hands. The State of Nordrhein-Westfalen and the City of Düsseldorf each acquire 50% ownership share.

1964
The Düsseldorf Airport commissions a project plan for a passenger handling facility to contain three concourses. This facility is to include 32 aircraft park positions directly adjacent to the building and 14 positions along the periphery of the apron. The project overview envisions a central building for departures and arrivals with three concourses( A, B and C) extending away from it. Air traffic grows: the number of passengers traveling through Düsseldorf increases to 1,430,000. Approval to build a parallel runway is applied for early 1963.

1972
A hall insulated for noise is constructed to decrease the amount of noise create by aircraft dry runs. Jets are not allowed to land between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Out of consideration to the Airport's neighbors, the postal night air traffic had already been eliminated in 1970.

1986
The 8.22 million passengers traveling through Düsseldorf Airport in 1985 help to propel the Airport to the second position in the German aviational market. A celebration accompanies the opening of Concourse C. On June 24th, the Düsseldorf Court System renders its first decision against the construction proposal for the new parallel runway. This judgement leads to a subsequent decision allowing for a simple backup runway, which is not to be used parallel to the existing runway in order to accommodate peak traffic times.

1992
With 12,274,348 passengers, the Airport shows a volume growth of 8.5% in passenger traffic. Air traffic increases by 5.9%. The Airport applies for a noise contingency as well as a ruling regarding noise level limits. This is done to insure that traffic on the parallel runway does not exceed noise levels from 1991.

1996
A tragic fire occurs at the Airport on April 11th. 17 people lose their lives, numerous others are injured. Damages are estimated in the hundreds of millions. The passenger handling facility is no longer employable - passengers have to adjust to large tents. November brings more pleasant conditions: Concourse C, fully renovated, is returned to operation. Three lightweight halls are utilized as departure areas.

2000
The Düsseldorf International reports a successful take-off into the new year! There are no reports of disturbances or impairments as what had been anticipated for New Year’s Eve in 2000.
On 28 May the new Düsseldorf Airport Rail Station goes into operation. Up to 300 trains stop daily at the Airport Rail Station, from ICEs through ECs down to the rapid-transit railway. Likewise in May, the airport grounds become the shooting location of a new television series. "Drehkreuz Flughafen" is an action-packed 12-episodes shown on ZDF starting in January 2001. In September the Ministry of Economics and Small Businesses, Technology and Transport for North Rhine-Westphalia grants the airport extended runway capacity. This change in authorisation permits an estimated increase of 25,000 additional flights (120,650 in total) to the airport. It also smoothes the way to increased air traffic according to demand. The timely construction work for the ambitious "air port 2000 Plus " project proceeds all year, on schedule. The rough construction and exterior facade installations are completed. At the beginning of October, the tremendous geometric roof of the new check-in hall is finished. On New Year’s Eve the Düsseldorf International welcome their 16-Millionth air passenger. In summary, the Dusseldorf International Airport reports having served 16.03 million air passengers. They maintain their position as Germany’s third largest airport!

2002
Düsseldorf International starts out the year well: in a Top-10 comparison of German airports, the airport emerged as the best and the safest. A few months later, the airport places second with the "Most Improved Airport" in a worldwide survey carried out by the IATA, the International Air Transport Association.
