The airport – a self-contained city

Our airport is a little world of its own.

Several thousand people move around on 1,470 hectares, which corresponds to around 2,000 football fields.

It has its own administration, airport fire brigade with three fire stations and approx. 300 firefighters which can be on-site in a maximum of three minutes, a pharmacy, a quiet room, restaurants, shopping and various service companies.

To help you feel what it’s like in our little airport microcosm, we’ve put together a brief virtual tour. Come and join us on an exciting journey.
