Cologne/Bonn Airport

Cologne/Bonn Airport is Germany’s number 3 airport for freight, and number 6 for passenger numbers. It is ranked in 6th place in the top 50 of the largest air cargo handling locations in Europe, closely followed by Brussels-Zaventem in 7th place. In terms of passengers, the airport competes at national level in particular with the larger Düsseldorf airport just 49 km to the north and Weeze airport. Frankfurt am Main Airport is also in the catchment area, since it is only 50 minutes from Cologne by train.

In addition to Leipzig/Halle and the Frankfurt-Hahn airport, Cologne/Bonn is a long-standing government airport and because of the air force facilities stationed here it is one of the few German airports without a night-time flight ban. This leads to noise pollution – in particular from night flights – in the heavily populated catchment area of the airport which covers the large cities of Cologne and Bonn, as well as the districts of the Rhein-Sieg-Kreis, Rhein-Bergischer Kreis und Oberbergischer Kreis.

Despite the economic crisis and the departure of DHL and Lufthansa Cargo, the number of employees at the Cologne/Bonn airport has remained almost consistently high. At the end of 2009, a total of 12,216 employees were employed at the airport, only about two percent less than in 2007. This information comes from the current workplace survey at Cologne/Bonn Airport. Since a number of budget airlines moved here in 2001, the number of employees has increased by 28 percent.

In 2014, 2015 and 2016, Cologne/Bonn Airport was voted the best regional airport in Europe in the Skytrax World Airport Awards Survey. In the global comparison, Cologne/Bonn Airport was ranked in second place.
