The First Flights from Nuremberg: History of the Airport

Opening in 1955, Nuremberg Airport was the first airport to be totally reconstructed after the end of the Second World War and, as early as 1960, it was already serving 100,000 passengers per year. In order to meet the high volume of flights passing through, NUE Airport's only runway was extended twice in the following decade. In 1970, the first jumbo jet, a Boeing 747, landed at Nuremberg Airport in a much-publicised event, that attracted more than 20,000 spectators.

In 1986, Nuremberg Airport recorded a million passengers for the first time. The airport’s popularity continued as Air Berlin made Nuremberg its hub in the 90s. During this time, the airport was connected to the city’s public transport network and the second departure hall was extended. When, in 2003, Air Berlin withdrew from Nuremberg Airport, the airport was run temporarily at a loss. Today, NUE Airport is one of the fastest growing airports in Germany.
