Charter a Private Jet to Dusseldorf Airport

Dusseldorf Airport is the third busiest in Germany and is situated approximately 6 kilometres outside North Rhine-Westphalia’s capital city. Two runways serve both departing and arriving flights with the General Aviation Terminal offering passengers of charter flights a comprehensive range of VIP services.

Dusseldorf Airport: Overview

At the beginning of the 20th century, the first municipal airship hangar was located south of today’s airport commercial park. It was used by the world’s first airline, the German Airship Travel Corporation (DULAG). Albert Paul Vieh, a pioneer of airship travel, built the first semi-rigid airship here. Dusseldorf (DUS) Airport followed in 1927 at its current location. It was extensively renovated and expanded in the 1990s. In the early 2000s, the next big project followed: Dusseldorf Airport City, a corporate park with a conference hotel, an underground carpark, and the biggest Porsche showroom in Germany, all located southwest of the airport. In 2013, the airport underwent a large rebranding campaign, changing its name and adopting a new logo in line with its growing ambitions. Dusseldorf Airport now stands alongside Los Angeles LAX, New York JFK, and Paris CDG as one of the most recognised airport brands in the world.

Your Charter Flight from Dusseldorf

Dusseldorf Airport is situated six kilometres north of the city and covers an area of 613 hectares. Due to its close proximity to the city centre and the Messe Dusseldorf (exhibition centre), very short transfer times are a given – ideal when you need to get to a meeting quickly. The airport’s convenient location is not the only advantage for charter jet passengers. The number of easy-to-reach onward destinations are plentiful:

Airport Düsseldorf

A Dusseldorf flight to Friedrichshafen (FDH) is about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The southernmost commercial airport in Germany is about three kilometres (ten minutes by car) from Friedrichshafen city centre and is the ideal departure point for trips to Lake Constance and the four-country region surrounding it. A charter flight from Dusseldorf to Munich (MUC) takes 1 hour and 10 minutes. Because the Bavarian capital’s airport is 30 kilometres outside the city, a transfer by helicopter is the quickest means of reaching the centre. A flight from Dusseldorf to Nuremberg (NUE) takes about an hour. From there, it’s an easy onward journey to Bayreuth or Bamberg. A flight to Luxembourg (LUX) are under an hour; the centre of the Grand Duchy is just six kilometres away. Kirchberg-Plateau, the seat of numerous banks and European institutions, is only 15 minutes by ground transfer. Whether for business or pleasure, a private jet from Dusseldorf to Zurich (ZRH) is just 70 minutes, meaning you could be at a meeting in the centre of the Swiss capital or in a cosy alpine cabin in less than two hours. A 30-minute VIP helicopter shuttle over spectacular scenery is the most memorable way of reaching the beautiful resorts of St. Moritz and Gstaad.

Dusseldorf (EDDL / DUS) is the third largest airport in Germany after Frankfurt am Main (EDDF / FRA) and Munich (EDDM / MUC), which is clearly illustrated by its number of passengers and flight connections: more than 211,000 flights transporting over 23.5 million passengers are processed annually (2016). To ensure the highest comfort for passengers flying by private jet charter in Dusseldorf, the airport’s General Aviation Terminal (GAT) offers exclusive service and VIP amenities in an 800 sqm facility. These include:

  • Separate security and passport control
  • Exclusive lounge
  • Conference centre
  • Pilots‘ lounge and briefing room
  • Servicing and refuelling of aircraft through an external service provider
  • Premium parking area with a separate entrance

The General Aviation Terminal is located at Flughafenstraße 60 with a parking lot 13 in the immediate vicinity.

Dusseldorf Airport provides two runways suitable for charter aircraft of all types and weight classes that can be navigated by Visual Flight Rules (VFR) and Instrumental Flight Rules (IFR):

Runway Length and width Surface
05R/23L 3,000 m x 45 m Concrete
05L/23R 2,700 m x 45 m Concrete

To minimise the noise disruption for residents, air traffic at Dusseldorf Airport is subject to certain restrictions, which also apply to most charter flights. Flight movements may take place between 6am and 11pm, with a limited number of landing times available between 10pm and 11pm. However, flights between 11pm and 6am are not completely banned; propeller aircraft with a noise certificate and a maximum starting weight of 9 tonnes may take off and land 24 hours a day.

Transfers to and from Dusseldorf Airport

Various options are available for a comfortable transfer into the city. In addition to the airport taxis (standard credit cards accepted as payment) at the arrival and departure zones, a number of car hire firms operate from the airport. Of course, chauffeured limousines or executive car transfers can be organised upon request.
