Düsseldorf Airport is the “airport for North Rhine Westphalia” – one of Europe’s largest economical areas.
Air traffic in the metropolitan region with its 18 million citizens in a 100 kilometers radius is concentrated on the airport, with most flight connections, a close-knit European network, an ever-growing number of intercontinental flights and up to 70,000 passengers passing through the airport day by day.
But today‘s airports need to be much more than an air traffic junction: a modern business park, a conference and meeting center, a world of experience with diverse shopping possibilities and food outlets, a location for exciting events – exceeding customers’ expectations 365 days every year. Düsseldorf Airport with all its businesses is therefore following one goal towards every customer: feel comfortable and enjoy the airport.
