Paderborn Lippstadt Airport (German: Flughafen Paderborn Lippstadt) (IATA: PADICAO: 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 center. It mainly serves flights to European leisure destinations.


Paderborn Lippstadt Airport came into being in 1971 as the Flughafen Paderborn/Lippstadt GmbH,

The terminal offers several facilities for travelers. There are mainly travel agencies in the airport, but it also contains a restaurant, shops and car rental agencies as well as 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 center 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 to terminate all operations at Paderborn Lippstadt Airport. Therefore, all ten year-round and seasonal routes to destinations around the Mediterranean will cease by 26 October 2015.[1]
