Niederrhein (Weeze) Airport

Niederrhein (Weeze) Airport Airport Weeze is located in the geographical centre of Western Europe on the borders of the Netherlands and Belgium.

The advantage of this airport is its unique location in the centre of the Rhine, Ruhrgebiet and the Netherlands. Economic areas such as Düsseldorf, Essen, Duisburg, Krefeld, Mönchengladbach, Eindhoven, Nimwegen, Arnheim and Venlo lie in a radius of 80 km. The distance to Cologne and Dortmund is 100 km, and 115 km to Maastricht. There are motorway links 12 km away, on the German side and the Dutch side.

History of Airport Weeze

1954
Founding of the British military airport Weeze/Laarbruch. The Royal Air Force stations Tornados, Bucaneers and Harriers among other planes. The British are very active at all levels of society and are very well-liked as neighbours in the Niederrhein. Many friendly relationships still exist today.

1993
Founding of "Flughafen Niederrhein GmbH". The region is the responsible body. The company works out use concepts for the airport area. The aim: new jobs and the attracting of companies, to balance out the predicted departure of 5,000 members of the armed forces.

1997
The use concept "Euro-regional Centre For Air Traffic, Logistics And Trade" meets with broad agreement in the Netherlands and in Germany . The approval procedure begins.

1999
After 45 years, the Royal Air Force leaves its Weeze/Laarbruch base, on the 30th November. The region loses good friends, who are also appreciated as clients and customers. Over 400 civilian jobs are lost.

2001
A Dutch group of investors purchases Laarbruch and takes over the 620 ha area. On the 20th June, Transport Minister Ernst Schwanhold grants the aviation law approval for civilian air traffic.


2002

The construction of the new passenger terminal and of a new apron begins. The air traffic facilities are completely renovated and partially replaced. German Air Traffic Control sets up a tower.

2003
On the 1st of May, the new Airport Niederrhein starts regular service. The low-cost airline Ryanair flies 3 times daily to London.
Until the 1st August, the passengers are checked in in a provisionally converted hangar. The new 15,000 m2 terminal is opened.
In October, the airport receives its first Homecarrier: the Dutch V Bird stations three Airbus A 320s and offers low-cost German and European flights.
A complaint from the neighbouring borough of Bergen leads to a restriction of weekend flights. Flight diversions and the transportation of the passengers to remote alternative airports cost the young airline over a million Euro.
The Dutch operator Sudtours only runs flights for a short time with its holiday plane Dutchbird; the marketing of package tours to Gran Canaria in Germany remains unsuccessful.

2004
On the 1st of May - weekend, 80,000 visitors celebrate the airport's first birthday. Soon after, the 500,000th passeger is welcomed.

The airport extends the parking areas: 3,000 parking spaces are now available.

On the 8th October, V Bird ceases trading, negotiations with new investors having surprisingly failed. Shortly afterwards, the company files for bankruptcy. Around 4,000 V Bird passengers must look for new tickets. As a result, around 100 employees lose their job at the airport.
Ryanair extends its range of flights to the Niederrhein. Ryanair currently offers daily flights to London/Stansted, Glasgow/Prestwick, Barcelona/Girona, Rome/Ciampino and Stockholm/Skavsta. Charter flights to Antalya are available with atlasjet, Sky Airways and MNG.
