One million reasons to consider Leipzig / Halle Airport

Leipzig/Halle Airport is one of the top five cargo hubs in Europe with annual freight volumes of more than 1.6 million tons.

Located at the very heart of Europe, Leipzig/Halle Airport offers 24/7 operations for cargo flights, direct links to the trans-European road and railroad networks, generous space and capacity opportunities and comprehensive logistics services from one source.

LEJ manages to accelerate the procedure for obtaining landing and entry permits - as a result of the German government's coalition agreement, which states that the time required for permits for incoming and outgoing ad-hoc freight charter flights must be reduced in order to abolish competitive disadvantages with other EU countries.
