EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg

"The Blotzheim miracle" is sixty years old. The first Basel-Mulhouse airport infrastructure was constructed within two months and inaugurated on 8th May, 1946, after the first civilian aircraft had landed there a few days before on 2nd May.

The Basel-Mulhouse airport, known under its trademark EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg, has a trinational vocation and as such is a symbol for the international co-operation which became absolutely vital after the Second World War.

Today, the extremely convenient location of EuroAirport at the heart of Western Europe and at the crossroads of three economically thriving regions (Alsace, North West Switzerland and Baden-Württemberg) explains the airport’s success. EuroAirport is the best equipped airport on the Upper Rhine and thanks to its infrastructure can cope with any kind of traffic.

4.3 million passengers have used EuroAirport in 2007. The scheduled flight network includes 62 airports in around 30 different countries that are usually flown to directly at least once every day without having to change. There are a total of 20 daily flights to Paris, London and Berlin.

The approximately 70 daily scheduled flights are handled by 20 different airlines at EuroAirport. easyJet, Air France, Lufthansa and their members in the Star Alliance Swiss International Air Lines, Austrian Airlines and SAS followed by British Airways are market leaders. The presence of the world’s leading alliances Star Alliance, SkyTeam and oneworld means that the customer has excellent connections to all major European hubs and from there to a wide range of intercontinental destinations.

EuroAirport is not just a gateway to the world, but also a gateway to the trinational region for all those who visit. In 2006 around 230,000 tourists passed through EuroAirport, an increase of 28% over the previous year. This potential can be further developed by specific regional tourism promotion.
