Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport is located in the heart of Germany on the European traffic axis Ruhr to Berlin and is financed by the district communities and cities in the region.
According to the provincial government's plans Paderborn-Lippstadt airport is intended to be the station for regional scheduled air traffic, occasional industrial air traffic, in particular for tourist air traffic and for company owned aircraft as well as the focus for general aviation.
These aims have been realized since the beginnings of tourist charter flights with large medium-haul aircraft in 1988.
Nonstop and feeder flights to Munich offer mobility to almost every destination in the world. Counting more than 38.000 flight movements and 1 million passengers each year Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport is well-established amongst European and International Airports.
Airlines offer a wide variety of holiday flights to the most attractive destinations in the south of Europe. Destinations like Spain, North Africa, Canary Island, in Turkey and Bulgaria are scheduled throughout the seasons. City flights to the hotspots in Europe complete the European network. Scheduled flights with Lufthansa feed the star alliance from Munich providing further continental and intercontinental destinations.
Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport was not built as a big airport at the outset. The focus lies rather more on a long-term project timeframe. Modular expansion and continuous planning for future buildings are in accordance with modern developments meeting the airline and passenger needs and demands. Low-key investments and a lean company structure have made Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport strong to meet the competitive market and endure economic crisis. The current facilities offer easy accessibility, high quality operation to short- and long-haul aircraft, a comprehensive service catalogue and a balanced mix of holiday and business flights within Europe. Lufthansa subsidiaries provide links to the worldwide network out of Munich.
