Under one roof and with one voice

Mitteldeutsche Airport Holding as an entity (stock company »Mitteldeutsche Flughafen AG«) is a management and financial holding. Through the unified leadership of its subsidiaries as regards the key areas of strategy and finance, and through systematic human resources development, the holding sets the preconditions for sustained economic success.

Through their equity involvement in the group, the shareholders (Free State of Saxony, State of Saxony-Anhalt and the Cities of Leipzig, Dresden and Halle) have managed to overcome administrative boundaries and to invest in a common future.

The affiliated companies in the group use the available funds strategically and efficiently. They market their individual strengths as a team.

The activities of the group are oriented towards promoting the region, beyond all state boundaries and individual locations. They support the economic development and indirectly promote job creation in central Germany.

The holding and its subsidiaries jointly develop corporate strategic principles. Implementation of these principles is the responsibility of all affiliated companies.

Demand-led development

Scheduled traffic, tourist flights, air cargo: customers are provided with state-of-the-art infrastructure, thus creating ideal conditions for future development.

This is valid for the aviation business and for other services related to non-aviation activities.

Mitteldeutsche Airport Holding places emphasis on co-operation – where appropriate. Possible collaboration includes other airports and other associated companies in the air traffic sector as well as private investors in the context of long-term, strategic investments.

Growth through partnership

Major elements in the growth strategy of the group are strong customer relationships by way of a targeted development policy. The allocation of financial and human resources by third party investors at the airport sites confirm this way of location strategy.
