2005 - today

Continuing the highlights of the development of Nuremberg Airport. Here you can read about the most recent events in and around Nuremberg Airport: from 2005 to today.

2005 was geared to the anniversary celebrations for “50 Years of Nuremberg Airport” with a number of top events and altogether 45,000 visitors. Nuremberg Airport secured its position among the Top 10 German airports again this year and consolidated its top position in the popularity rankings by winning the “Business Traveller Award 2005” as “Best German Regional Airport”.

2006 was a year in which various extensions were made to the flight network. Air Berlin and dba merged at the beginning of the 2006/2007 winter timetable and reached a suitable agreement on the overlapping intra-German services of the two airlines to Hamburg, Berlin and Düsseldorf.

The rush for the 2006 FIFA World Cup© was also coped with this year: The transfer of some 15,000 extra passengers and more than 350 additional flights for the World Cup ran smoothly and harmoniously.


The new hub was also good for Nuremberg Airport in 2007: The airport developed more dynamically than the overall German market and achieved new record figures. One of the two large building projects was the P3 multi-story car park with 2,200 parking spaces. The attractiveness of the airport was also improved in the non-aviation area, including new shops in the departure lounges and larger catering capacities.

The second large project this year was the new Transfer Control Terminal, which was ceremoniously inaugurated the same year: The new TCT building was built as part of the medium-term investment program presented by Nuremberg Airport the previous year.


2008 saw the completion of one of the most extensive construction projects – the renaturalization of the Bucher Landgraben stream. The attractiveness of the airport was also improved in the non-aviation area: new shops were added and the catering capacities extended.

Independent of the economic development, Nuremberg Airport was the passengers’ top favorite again: Winning the renowned Business Traveller Award again and first place in a test carried out by the German Institute for Service Quality (Hamburg) on behalf of the n-tv television network mainly showed how easy it is for passengers to find their way around and the above-average service. The ratings also confirmed the activities of the 2008 Image Campaign with the slogan “We focus on people”.
