History of Nuremberg Airport
Nuremberg Airport’s history dates back to the 1920s when Nuremberg and Furth requested the lease of the military airfield for civil aviation purposes.
After several relocations, the Marjenberg airport was built and operated between 1939 and 1943. The airport was destroyed during the World War II bombings. After temporary relocations, the airport was built at the present site in April 1955.
The runway of the airport was extended to 2,300 meters in 1961. Currently, its length is 2,700 meters. An extension was in 1977 to enable the airport to handle wide-bodied aircraft.
In 1981, a new passenger terminal with improved facilities was built to replace the old terminal. It featured a large observation deck and a restaurant. Eight years later, construction of the west terminal began at the airport site. This €50 million project was completed in 1992.
An extension of Subway Line 2 (U2) that connects NUE to the city center was inaugurated in 1999.
In 2007, a new Transfer Control Terminal building, new retail shops in the departure lounge, and extensions to catering areas were added to the airport.
The passenger terminal consists of two Departure Halls and one Arrival Hall linked on the landside and airside. The check-in area has 40 desks.
In December 2015, the new security control between Departure Halls 1 and 2 on the Ground Floor opened, replacing earlier facilities upstairs in Hall 2.
