In 1992, when Munich Airport first opened, the annual airfreight volume was approximately 80,000 tons. Today, with an annual volume of around 400,000 tons, it is the biggest cargo airport in southern Germany and also serves as a cargo gateway for businesses throughout south-eastern Europe.
As a major airfreight hub, Munich Airport's state-of-the art cargo infrastructure can handle all of the challenges of modern airfreight logistics. Moreover, the airport's large catchment area boasts a mix of premium industries and an upscale consumer market.
Naturally we understand the importance of airfreight services for the export-driven industries in southern Germany, and are looking ahead by planning further expansion projects as well as automated solutions. We have made the development of the freight segment an integral part of our strategic planning.
