Leipzig Airport

The airport Leipzig/Halle (also called “Airport Schkeuditz” due to its location near the town of Schkeuditz) is - as the name suggests – between Halle and Leipzig. The airport was inaugurated in 1927 with a hangar, a provisional administrative wing as well as an airfield. The first runway was built only a year later, when the name of the airport was also changed from Schkeuditz to Halle/Leipzig. After being expanded in the years before the Second World War, the airport was only actually used again in 1963 and then only twice a year as “Messeflughafen Leipzig” for the fair trade. The check-in areas were at first only temporary buildings (for the duration of the fair trade) and dismantled again after the trade show was over. In 1968, a permanent building was finally constructed. This is now part of Terminal A and in the months between exhibitions it served as a motorway service station. Further development work was begun in 1972 enabling the airport to be used all year round. By then, the airport was operated under the name “Leipzig airport”. In 1986, two Concordes landed at Leipzig for the first time (from Paris and London). With a total of seven Concorde landings, Leipzig/Halle airport holds the German record. After reunification, extensive renovation and modernization work took place at the airport. Terminal B and Terminal C were opened in 1993 and 1996. Today however, Leipzig/Halle Airport operates using only two terminals (A and B). [More]

More information about Leipzig Airport

Arriving at Leipzig/Halle Airport by train is easy via the airport railway station - either using the Inter-City (hourly) or ICE (twice daily) or with the RE5 Deutsche Bahn train, which runs every hour between 4 am and 11 pm. The train is expected to be replaced in 2013 by the Halle-Zwickau-S-Bahn line S5. Passengers arriving by car, please use the A9 or A14 or the highway B6. There is plenty of opportunity to park at the airport in several open air and multi-story car parks. From the car park (with over 2,000 parking spaces) passengers can easily access the check-in areas. Parking is free for up to 20 minutes. Short-term parking is available at P1, P3 and P11. P11 is cheaper if parking for less than an hour, and P1 and P3 are cheaper for two hours or longer. Long-term parking is possible at P2 and P4 and seasonally at P20 in the neighbouring town Kursdorf. Here parking fees are especially cheap for passengers who want to park their car for at least a week. A free shuttle bus operates between the Central Terminal (departures) and Terminal B (arrivals) and the outdoor parking lots P2, P4 and P20.

The airport itself is equipped with every comfort. In the shopping area – the connecting area between Terminal B and the check-in area – there is an ATM next to the savings bank and an upholstered lounge, as well as numerous travel agencies that sell last-minute bargain flights from the Leipzig-Halle airport. Flights can for example be booked at Top Tours Ltd. Last minute discount flights are available at the last minute travel agent.

Diagonally across from the arrivals hall (Terminal B) are the offices of the car rental companies Avis, Europcar, Hertz and Sixt. These enable passengers to hire cars so that they are free to explore the area independently of public transport. Those arriving late or leaving with an early flight can spend the night at one of the hotels in the vicinity of the airport such as the Globana Airport Hotel Leipzig or The Comfort Hotel which is a few miles further south, the Glesien country hotel, or the Best Western Hotel Leipzig Airport-Messe.
