Munster Osnabruck Airport

Munster Osnabruck Airport

On 21.12.1966 the "Flughafen Münster/Osnabrück GmbH" is founded by the towns of Münster, Osnabrück and Greven as well as the rural districts of Münster, Tecklenburg and Steinfurt.

After a three-year period of construction Münster/Osnabrück Airport is officially opened on 27.05.1972. Cimber Air flies to Frankfurt/Main three times a day providing a link to one of the largest aviation hubs in Europe. The result is that the airport is used by 25,000 passengers in the first year of operation.

In 1995, with the opening of the new terminal the airport finally "comes of age". It is now well-equipped for the immediate future to cope with the considerable growth rates without experiencing any of the problems this expansion in air traffic caused in past years.

In 2003, the Air Berlin Hangar is opened in the presence of Air Berlin Managing Director Joachim Hunold. The maintenance hangar measuring 2,450 m2 is big enough for an aircraft the size of a Boeing 737. Air Berlin meanwhile has 6 airlines stationed at FMO and is thus the most strongly represented airline at Münster/Osnabrück Airport.

In 2004, decisive for the long-term development of the airport was most certainly the approval for the extension of the runway granted at the end of the year. Thus the airport has received an extremely important option for its ongoing dynamic development.
