Giebelstadt Airport (IATA: GHFICAO: EDQG) is a general aviation airport located in Germany, southwest of Giebelstadt in Bavaria. The airport is the only public-use airfield in the Würzburg region. It offers private aircraft and charter operations.

History[edit]

The airport was opened as a private, general aviation facility in February 2001 as a joint military-civilian use agreement was made between the United States Army and the German government. After the closure of Giebelstadt Army Airfield, the civil airport became the sole user of the airfield.
