Straubing Wallmühle Airport (IATA: RBM, ICAO: EDMS) is a minor German regional airport, located about 3 miles north-northwest of Straubing in Bavaria. It is used for general aviation.

History[edit]

Today's Straubing airfield was founded at the beginning of the 1960s by some flight enthusiasts from Straubing. At first only gliding operations with winch towing took place. In 1972, Straubing-Wallmühle airfield was founded as a limited liability company by the two shareholders, the city of Straubing and the district of Straubing-Bogen. Since that time, the airport has been a public transport company (Verkehrslandeplatz) with a daily duty to operate at binding opening times.

Airlines and destinations[edit]

As of April 2016, there are no scheduled services to or from Straubing. Briefly during early 2016 Danish charter airline Flexflight offered services between Straubing and Salzburg Airport.[1] Flights were later moved from Straubing to Augsburg.[2]
