Built on farmland, 908 ft (277 m) ASL lying NNE of the Hoher Dörnberg, the airport was opened on 11 July 1970. The airport has a single asphalt runway, 04/22 (040°/220°), which is 1,500 by 30 m (4,921 by 98 ft). There is a parallel grass strip north of the main runway, which is 700 by 30 m (2,297 by 98 ft). It has been operated as a public-private partnership since 1991.Future development
There are current plans to enlarge the airport to a full regional airport, with a projected increase in the runway length to approximately 8,200 ft (2,500 m) and width to approximately 150 ft (46 m) to accommodate commercial chartered and scheduled carriers.Airlines and destinations
The main runway is currently too short for most commercial (charter and scheduled) jet-powered and the larger turboprop aircraft, and most of the 35,000 annual aircraft movements are general aviation, sports, and helicopter flights. There is also a flight school, an ultralight flying school, and a parachuting school based on site.
