“We did not just achieve our goal of welcoming 2.5 million passengers to our airport in 2019, we significantly exceeded it. We can be very satisfied with those figures because the increase is not only far above the growth in the industry, but it also makes us the leader in passenger development for the second time in a row after 2018”, says airport chief Udo Mager, commenting on Dortmund Airport’s passenger numbers for of 2019. A total of 2,719,563 passengers used the airport – 19.1 percent more than in 2018, which already ended with an increase of 14.2 percent. That means the
airport set a new passenger record in 2019: The previous peak of a good 2.33 million passengers from 2008 was already beat in early November. With its disproportionate growth, Dortmund Airport also made the leap into the top 10 largest airports in Germany.
