Good start to the year for Leipzig/Halle

Leipzig Halle Airport

Leipzig/Halle airport, Europe’s fifth-busiest and Germany’s second-biggest airfreight gateway, handled 84,782 tonnes of cargo in January this year, an increase of 6.9% over the same month of 2016.
Operated by Mitteldeutsche Flughafen AG (which also operates Dresden airport as well as cargo and ground handler PortGround), Leipzig/Halle handled approximately 1.05 million tonnes of airfreight over the course of 2016. This represented an increase of 6.5% over the 2015 figure.

DHL Express has its European air cargo hub at the airport and contributes heavily to Leipzig/Halle’s overall cargo throughput.
