Rostock–Laage Airport (or Rostock Airport) (IATA: RLG, ICAO: ETNL) is the regional airport of Rostock, Germany. In addition to civil activity, Jagdgeschwader 73 of the Luftwaffe is stationed on the military side of the airport.
Construction of the airport began in 1979 as a National People's Army facility. It became operational in 1984 with the Fighter Wing JBG 77 and the Navy Fighter Wing 28.
