Münster Osnabrück International Airport
MÜNSTER OSNABRÜCK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT:
Münster Osnabrück International Airport is one of the most
successful airports in Germany. Being located at the intersection of Western
Lower Saxony, the Northern Ruhr Area and the Netherlands, a good six million
people live in the immediate catchment area.
Further handling capacities, flight destinations, parking facilities
and further services are continuously added. The plans for an extension
of the runway are also making good progress so that intercontinental flights
will be possible in the next few years.
On 21-12-1966 the towns of Münster, Osnabrück and Greven as
well as the counties of Münster, Tecklenburg and Steinfurt establish
"Flughafen Münster/Osnabrück GmbH".
The first sod is turned for the construction of the airport on the fields
of Hüttrup Heath near Greven which have so far been used for agriculture
On 24-09-1968 the Land North-Rhine-Westphalia approves the first construction
phase. The airfield and a runway with a length of 2000 m are completed.
Levelling of the ground is carried out by the British Army of the Rhine.
After five years of construction Münster/Osnabrück Airport is
officially opened on 27-05-1972. Cimber Air takes off to Frankfurt/Main
three times a day with a 29-seater Nord 262. This was intended as a connecting
flight to one of Europe's largest hubs. In the first year of operation
a good 25,000 passengers are counted
World-wide recession also shows its effects in air traffic. Scheduled
flights are drastically reduced due to low demand. Tour operators temporarily
move away to larger airports. The number of passengers drops to 80,000.
The Land NRW cancels subsidies. The operating loss rises to DM 3 million.
In this situation the people in charge even think about suspending flying
In the summer there are 150 scheduled flights and another 25 charter flights
per week. On 15th September green light is given: The Land NRW decides
to support the construction of the new terminal with DM 62 million from
structuring aid funds. Work starts immediately. In the same year the largest
growth jump in the history of the airport is accomplished with 100,000
additional passengers. Air Berlin takes off from FMO for the first time
In April the new multi-storey car park P B is put into service. The topping-out
ceremony for the new terminal takes place in September. The project financed
by the airport itself costs approx. DM 100 million. For the extension
of the apron area another DM 15 million have to be provided. The new terminal
is supposed to be put into service in May/June 2001. With 1,774,739 passengers
and a rate of increase of 12.5% Münster/Osnabrück Airport is
once again the fastest growing airport in Germany in 2000. The airport
works out a new corporate identity. The guiding principle is "Relaxation
for the air passenger."
Air Berlin intensifies its engagement at Münster/Osnabrück Airport
and plans to build a new aircraft maintenance hangar. The planned size
of this hangar is approx. 45 x 50 m with a headroom of 13.50 m where aircraft,
type Boeing 737-800 and also larger variants of this model can be serviced.
Air Berlin and the airport intend to put the new maintenance hangar into
service in 2003. It will be located east of the fire-brigade building.
