EuroAirport plans development projects

EuroAirport expects passenger traffic figures to reach up to 13 million by 2030, and the cargo business is also expected to grow. The airport plans to undertake development projects to meet this rising demand.

By 2030, passenger traffic figures at EuroAirport are expected to reach between 11 and 13 million, which corresponds to a growth of 60 per cent. Cargo business is also expected to rise between 100,000 and 130,000 tonnes, according to a statement

The airport’s capacity will have to be expanded to meet this rising demand. In the short term, the focus will be on maintaining capacity in the passenger terminal building, which will include renovating the arrivals halls and improving baggage control checks. A number of different development scenarios will be studied for the medium- to long-term periods of 2025 to 2030. A key element in the airport’s strategy is the planned rail link. As the Badische Zeitung reports, the airport plans to invest €30 million per year into the development projects. 

EuroAirport hit the 7-million-passenger mark in 2015; by 2017, that number had already risen to nearly 8 million. Depending on the season, the scheduled flight network includes 70 to 100 airports in some 30 different countries, and the airport is served by over 25 different airlines. EuroAirport calls itself “the best equipped airport on the Upper Rhine”, which can cope with any kind of traffic thanks to its infrastructure.
