Book Your Private Jet to Hannover

Hannover Airport is located near Langenhagen, approximately 10 kilometres from Hannover city centre, and is among the busiest German airports in terms of passenger numbers and flight movements. Three runways are available for commercial and charter flights to and from Hannover.

Hannover Airport Overview

Hannover HAJ Airport opened in 1952 to replace the Hannover Vahrenwald Airport, which could not be expanded due to lack of space. At first, the airport operated with only one runway. To increase capacity, the original runway was expanded and two further runways were added in the following years. Today, the airport consists of a north and a south runway as well as a short runway in the middle.

One of the Hannover Airport’s unique characteristics is its interactive multimedia exhibit, World of Aviation, which explores all essential aspects of aviation from its history to the latest technology. The exhibit’s main attraction is the chance to try out a flight simulator for the Airbus A320 and Boeing 737.
