Dresden Airport celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2015.

On 19 and 20 September well over 10,000 people descended on Dresden Airport to help celebrate the 80th anniversary of its foundation. Highlights of the Airport Festival were sightseeing flights across Dresden and surroundings with airberlin, Germania and various small aircraft, as well as tours of the NATO AWACS reconnaissance aircraft and the legendary 152 jet aircraft. Many of the airport’s partners – ranging from Aeroclub Pirna to the customs authorities – exhibited both inside and outside the terminal. Other features were Mini, Weather Station and Aircraft Factory tours, an aircraft and technology show, fun and games for children, and a show programme with music, comedy, artistry and talks on two stages. We’ve put together a selection of the best pictures for you here.
