One million reasons for considering Leipzig/Halle Airport

Leipzig/Halle Airport is one of the top four cargo hubs in Europe with annual freight volumes totalling more than 1.6 million tons.

Located at the heart of Europe, Leipzig/Halle Airport offers 24/7 operations for cargo flights, direct links to the trans-European road and rail networks, generous space and capacity and comprehensive logistics services from one source.

LEJ is able to accelerate the procedure for obtaining landing and entry permits – as a result of the German government's coalition agreement, which states that the time required for permits for incoming and outgoing ad-hoc freight charter flights must be reduced in order to abolish competitive disadvantages with other EU countries.
