Düsseldorf Airport offers a fresh modern design that is easy to navigate. And whist some airports are massive hubs processing many tens of millions of passengers, Düsseldorf’s is one of those few dotted around the globe where the necessary formalities surrounding a flight can be surprisingly smooth.
Owned jointly by the city administration and private enterprise with a strong management team. It seems that the concept works; modern, light and open, this airport is very accessible.
Orientation and speedy check-in is facilitated by three compact, interconnecting terminals and short distances. Amenities are of international standards with excellent shopping possible right up to the gate. The airport also boasts a supermarket with opening hours second to none in the region, in or out of an airport.
It is a mere ten kilometres and ten minutes by taxi from downtown. The terminals also connect well with the national rail system, local public transport and the motorway network.
The nearest alternatives are Cologne/Bonn, Dortmund and Weeze, all about an hour away. They are relatively easy to get to but journey times can be somewhat unpredictable in this densely populated and highly motorised region.
