Paderborn Lippstadt AirportEdit profile
Paderborn/Lippstadt Airport (German: Flughafen Paderborn/Lippstadt) (IATA: PAD, ICAO: EDLP) is an airport in Germany that serves the Ostwestfalen-Lippe area in North Rhine-Westphalia. While the name implies a location within the city of Paderborn or the town of Lippstadt, the airport is actually located near the town of Büren, around 18 km (11 miles) from Paderborn city centre. Although the airport technically only serves the Ostwestfalen Lippe region, it is popular among residents of a wider area due to the availability of free long-term parking. It came into being in 1971 as the Flughafen Paderborn/Lippstadt GmbH, with 1.03 million passing through the airport in 2010.
