Paderborn Lippstadt Airport (German: Flughafen Paderborn Lippstadt) (IATA: PAD, ICAO: EDLP) is a minor international airport in the Ostwestfalen-Lippe area in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. While the name implies a location within the city of Paderborn or the town of Lippstadt, the airport is actually located near the town of Büren, around 18 km (11 mi) from Paderborn city centre. It mainly serves flights to European leisure destinations.

History[edit]

Paderborn Lippstadt Airport opened in 1971.[citation needed]

The terminal offers several facilities for travelers: travel agencies, a restaurant, shops, car rental agencies and a visitors deck. The apron features five stands for mid-sized aircraft such as the Airbus A320 of which three are equipped with jet bridges. There are also several stands for smaller general aviation aircraft.

A conference centre with several conference rooms can be found at the airport and a hotel was opened there in October 2006. An industrial park with several companies is located in the close vicinity. In 2010, 1.03 million passed through the airport. Ever since, passenger numbers have been decreasing. In September 2015, German leisure airline Condor announced the termination of all operations at Paderborn Lippstadt Airport. All ten year-round and seasonal routes to destinations around the Mediterranean ceased by 26 October 2015.[1]

In January 2019, Adria Airways announced it would shut down its shortlived operations at the airport which consisted of three routes to London (which already ceased in late 2018), Vienna and Zürich.[2]
