Aircraft on the apron at Dresden Airport 

More than 30,000 aircraft take off and land in Saxony's capital city every year. And around 1.8 million passengers from all over the world check in and out of the Dresden Airport terminal every year. A large volume of air cargo is also handled here, so business is always brisk in General Aviation.

The Aviation division handles all these activities and works with partner companies located on the grounds of Dresden Airport to ensure that all handling services run like clockwork. Our core values are: security, competence, customer orientation and friendliness.
