The benchmark of two million passengers, declared as Dortmund Airport’s clear target two years ago, was met in the third quarter this year. Since the beginning of the year, 2,037,146 passengers have passed through Dortmund Airport. That’s 19.4 percent more than in the previous year. 768,172 passengers flew from or to Dortmund in the third quarter alone.
‘We’re very satisfied with passenger development,’ says airport boss Udo Mager. ‘The signs are pointing to 2019 being the strongest year in terms of passenger numbers in the airport’s existence.’ In the previously strongest year of 2008, almost 2.33 million passengers used Dortmund Airport. In 2019, the airport made it to the 2.5 million mark.
