Münster Osnabruck Airport Information
"Münster Osnabrück International Airport is one of the most successful airports in Germany. Being located at the intersection of Western Lower Saxony, the Northern Ruhr Area and the Netherlands, a good six million people live in the immediate catchment area.
Further handling capacities, flight destinations, parking facilities and further services are continuously added. The plans for an extension of the runway are also making good progress so that intercontinental flights will be possible in the next few years.
Terminal II at the Münster Osnabrück International Airport
On 21 December 1966 the cities of Münster, Osnabrück, and Greven as well as the districts of Münster and Tecklenburg founded the Münster/Osnabrück Airport Co. Ltd.
On 24 September 1968 the state of North Rhine-Westphalia received permission to begin construction. An apron and a 2000 m (2200 yard) long runway were built. The ground levelling was performed by the British Army of the Rhine.
After five years of construction the Münster/Osnabrück airport was officially opened on 27 March 1972.
1973 - First charter flight from Münster/Osnabrück airport to Palma de Mallorca.
The Flughafen Münster/Osnabrück, or Muenster/Osnabrueck Airport, is the 4th largest international commercial airport in Northrhine-Westphalia. It is located 25 km from Münster (Westfalen), and 40 km from Osnabrück in the village of Greven.
Airlines and destinations
Lufthansa, Eurowings, EAE, Deutsche BA, and Air Berlin operate regular flights to and from this airport. Planned destinations: Moscow, Amsterdam.
The airport serves over 6 million people living in the northern Ruhrgebiet (Ruhr Basin), southern Lower Saxony, Emsland, parts of the Netherlands (Euregio), and East Westphalia.
The airport is currently working on expanding the runway to 3,600 meters (11,811.023622 ft.). This way, the airport hopes to attract intercontinental flights. The plan was the focus of protests from environmentalists, because the expansion would damage the Eltingmühlenbach natural area. However, the plan was approved in 2004. In the first phase, the runway will be expanded to 3,000 meters (9,842.519685 ft.). This will cost around €60 million. The expansion is expected to be completed in 2008. The cities of Münster and Greven and the Steinfurt district plan to donate an area of around 500 acres to the airport, for airport-related commercial activities. This was met with protests as well, because this plan would come down to an end of the Hüttruper Heide heath. Other plans include connecting the airport with the A1 motorway."
