Flughafen Köln/Bonn GmbH
Cologne Bonn Airport is one of the most important commercial airports in Germany, both for passengers and for cargo.
In 2022, around 8.8 million passengers used the airport.
Every year, more than 120 destinations in Europe and beyond are served.
At the same time, the airport is the logistical heart of North Rhine-Westphalia. In 2022, around 971,000 tonnes of air cargo were handled here. CGN is the only place in Germany used as a hub by the three major express couriers UPS, FedEx and DHL.
The airport is a major economic factor and one of the biggest places of employment in the region. Around 15,000 people are employed by 130 companies and authorities at the site, more than 1,700 directly by the airport company itself.
The airport is located in the south of the city of Cologne, with over a million inhabitants, in the immediate vicinity of Bonn and the Rhine-Sieg and Rheinisch-Bergisch districts. Around 16 million people live and work within a radius of 100 kilometres. It lies at the heart of one of the biggest import and export regions in Europe.
Climate protection and sustainability are an important part of the corporate strategy. By 2045 at the latest, the airport intends to be completely climate neutral.
It is in the immediate vicinity of the Wahner Heide heathland nature conservation area, which is one of the most precious and species-rich nature conservation areas in Central Europe. Since the late 1990s, the airport has invested more than 19 million EUR in the conservation of this unique cultivated landscape.
