Erfurt–Weimar Airport (German: Flughafen Erfurt–Weimar, IATA: ERF, ICAO: EDDE) is the airport of Erfurt, the capital of the German state of Thuringia and also serves the nearby well-known city of Weimar. It is located 5 km (3.1 mi) west of Erfurt city centre and is mainly used for seasonal charter flights.
The airport used to have scheduled service from London Stansted Airport from Ryanair which ceased on 19 January 2005 when the airline moved services to Leipzig–Altenburg Airport leaving the airport with no regular flights operated by a low-cost carrier.
The airport's name was changed from Erfurt Airport in 2011, it was felt that from a marketing point of view the addition of Weimar to the name would better sell the area due to its historic importance.
The airport consists of the two passenger terminal buildings A and B, but only the new Terminal B is currently in use. It features two aircraft parking positions and four boarding gates on two levels, the upper ones are equipped with jet bridges. There are also some shops and restaurants, a visitors terrace as well as travel and rental car agencies located inside the terminal. The apron also features several additional bus-boarding stands for mid-sized aircraft such as the Boeing 737.
