Expats in Rhine Ruhr can choose between several airports located in Düsseldorf, Cologne/Bonn, Dortmund and Weeze.

The airport in Düsseldorf (DUS) offers a fresh modern design that is easy to navigate. Modern, light and open, this airport is very accessible, it is more or less a ten kilometres and ten minutes by taxi from downtown Düsseldorf.

Focussed mostly on short or medium haul flights and offering many low cost alternatives, Cologne Bonn Airport (CGN) also reveals a refreshingly modern and easy to use terminal. The car park is massive and for those travelling by train, access to the fast rail network is excellent.

The nearest alternative for the cities of the Ruhr Metropolis is Dortmund Airport (DTM) located just a few kilometres from the city. It offers quiet and easy check to many destinations up to a few hours flight away..

Limited low cost flights are also available at Weeze (NRN) approximately an hour drive north of Düsseldorf, although journey times can be somewhat unpredictable.
