Your Charter Flight in Mönchengladbach

Mönchengladbach Airport is 8 kilometres northeast of Mönchengladbach city centre and 25 kilometres from Düsseldorf. It is easily reached by autobahn and has ample free parking. The 120 hectare grounds and 1,200-metre runway are used exclusively by private airlines, making the facility ideally equipped to serve the needs of business travellers arriving by charter jet at Mönchengladbach Airport for appointments in the surrounding area.

Mönchengladbach Airport History

Following the Second World War, the land on which the airport now stands was first used as a collection point for debris. In 1955, it became a landing strip for gliders and model planes. A year later, construction on a hangar began, followed by an air traffic control tower and terminal. The airport’s current runway was built in 1973. The airport was initially conceived to relieve pressure on Düsseldorf Airport. However, because of the length of runway, it is best suited to smaller, regional aircraft and specialises in general aviation for private jets from and to Mönchengladbach and neighbouring Düsseldorf.

It houses one of the last aircraft of the Junkers Ju 52 series that remains in flying condition.

Visitors can learn more about the life and work of technical pioneer Hugo Junkers and the history behind the famous plane in a permanent installation housed in the hangar.

The building also has three seminar rooms of various sizes and its main area makes for a unique location for private receptions and events.
