Paderborn-Lippstadt; in the Heart of Germany

This article focuses on the Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport, built in the 1960s to encourage business growth for an agriculturally-oriented area. The airport has also established a strong passenger clientele over the years, having accommodated over 1.2 million passengers in 2006, of which 911,000 were estimated to be leisure travelers. The airport has become especially attractive to vacation travelers as it provides 5,000 free long-term car parking spaces close by to its terminal building. The article describes the advantages of such an accommodating airport, the services it provides, and local amenities that draw visitors to the region. Recent developments include the addition of two off-site late night check-in offices, allowing passengers the opportunity to check in luggage closer to their homes and up to 24 hours in advance. Plans for the future include extending the airport’s runway, thus allowing certain aircraft to fly with no payload restrictions.
