Rostock Laage Airport was opened as a military location in 1978. The Jagdgeschwader 73 Steinhoff is based there since 1993. Joint civil and military usage was agreed upon in October 1993. Of the 1,000 hectare facility, around 37 hectares are currently used for civil air traffic. Due to its excellent location as well as a 24-hour operating permit, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania’s largest airport has quickly gained in significance. In addition to passenger traffic to German and European holiday destinations and feeder flights to cruises departing the Rostock port of Warnemünde, air freight traffic is set to become more important in the future. The short distances at Rostock Airport allow for excellent road and rail connections to other regions of Europe. Additionally, the Zeitfracht Group is planning to expand the location by building a new logistics center. The fleet of the company-owned German Airways is serviced at Rostock Airport since 2022.
