Never before in its 64-year history has Nuremberg Airport recorded so many passengers: 4.467 million passengers used Germany's most popular airport (Business Traveller Award 2008 - 2018) for business and holiday trips in 2018. The 6.7 percent increase on the previous year is due mainly to strong growth in the tourism sector. The busiest month was August, with over 500,000 passengers for the first time ever. The most successful day was 19 August 2018, with 20,777 passengers.
The jury of the international World Route Development Forum, World Routes, has awarded Albrecht Dürer Airport Nürnberg yet again with the World Routes Marketing Award – this time in competition with major airports of 4 to 20 million passengers. The award, which was presented in the southern Chinese port city of Guangzhou, is considered one of the highest distinctions awarded to airports and is much coveted by the industry. Managing Director Dr. Michael Hupe is delighted "about the industry’s renewed accolade".
Once again, Albrecht Dürer Airport Nürnberg has been impressed regular business travellers with easy orientation, short walking distances and excellent service. These passengers voted Nuremberg as their favourite airport for Business Traveller magazine. This is the eleventh consecutive year in which Nuremberg Airport has won the Business Traveller Award in the Best Airport for Business Travellers in Germany. “It’s a great achievement and we are all very proud”, says Managing Director Dr. Michael Hupe.
