Dear members and friends,

Join us for a behind the scenes tour of the

Stuttgart Airport
Saturday, 21 April 2012

The airport was built in 1939 to replace the Böblingen Airport. The original terminal was replaced in 2004 and there are now four terminals with a maximum capacity of approximately 12 million passengers.

It is the 7th most important airport in Germany and the main airport of the State of Baden-Württemberg with 9,226,546 passengers in 2010.

For the next 8-12 years no second runway will be built and the restrictions for night operations stay in place. (Information taken from Wikipedia)

Our tour of the airport will include a short informative film, a walk through the terminals and the security control points, as well as where the suitcases are sorted. We'll then go out onto the tarmac where they service the planes and then head out to the fire station. This is an opportunity to experience the airport from a different point of view.
Note: please adhere to the rules for this tour >> Thank you
