Trier-Föhren Airport (German: Flugplatz Trier-Föhren) (ICAO: EDRT[3]) is an airport serving Trier, a city in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It located in Föhren, 8 nautical miles (15 km; 9 mi) northeast of Trier[1] and approximately 340 miles (547 km) southwest of Berlin. The airport supports general aviation, with no commercial airline service available. Charter services and a full selection of amenities are available.

The current airport is a recent facility, opened in 1977, built about 18 km from the site of the historic Trier Airfield built in the early 20th Century.[4]


Trier-Föhren Airport was built as a new airport to replace Trier Airfield in the 1970s. It is next to the village of Föhren. A French army garrison formerly at Trier Airfield also moved to Föhren until it was disbanded in the 1990s. Since then, the "Industriepark Region Trier" was developed on its former site.[5]


The airport resides at an elevation of 665 feet (203 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 05/23 with a concrete surface measuring 1,200 by 30 metres (3,937 ft × 98 ft).[1][2]
