Flughafen Köln/Bonn GmbH

Cologne Bonn Airport is one of the most important commercial airports in Germany, both in terms of passenger traffic and freight.

Around 9.8 million passengers used the airport in 2023. Over 10 million passengers are expected in 2024. Every year, more than 120 destinations in Europe and beyond are served.

The airport is also the logistical heart of North Rhine-Westphalia. Around 873,000 tonnes of air freight were handled here in 2023. Only in CGN do the three major express service providers UPS, FedEx and DHL operate a hub in Germany.   

The airport is an important economic factor and one of the largest workplaces in the region. Around 15,000 people are employed by 130 companies and authorities at the site, more than 1,700 of whom work directly for the airport company.

The airport is located in the south of the metropolis of Cologne in the direct neighbourhood of Bonn, the Rhein-Sieg district and the Rheinisch-Bergisch district. Around 17 million people live and work within a radius of 100 kilometres. It lies at the heart of one of Europe's largest import and export regions.

Climate protection and sustainability are an important part of the corporate strategy. The airport aims to be completely climate-neutral by 2045 at the latest.

The Wahner Heide nature reserve, one of the most valuable and species-rich nature reserves in Central Europe, is located in the immediate neighbourhood. Since the end of the 1990s, the airport has invested more than 20 million euros in the preservation of this unique cultural landscape.
