Leipzig/Halle Airport by the numbers

The Airport is located between the two cities of Leipzig and Halle and in the north-east direction from Mailbox Germany’s hometown of Merseburg. Although annually 2.2 million passengers travel from the airport, it is before all the 2nd-largest cargo airport in Germany. In 2013, 887.101 metric tons of cargo were shipped via the Airport Leipzig/Halle. This is equal to 15,295 Boeing 767-300F airplanes which each can ship a payload of 58 metric tons.

Many big companies build logistics centers around the airport like eBay and Amazon. DHL even moved their logistics for eastern Europe to Leipzig and the Airport management is said to be in negotiations with FedEx and UPS.
The entrepreneurial spirit also took off with AeroLogic which was the first company established due to the airport.
