Hahn Air Base"Frankfurt-Hahn Airport ( _de. Flughafen Frankfurt-Hahn) Airport codes|HHN|EDFH is a commercial airportlocated 10 km (6.25 miles) from the town of Kirchberg and 20 km (12.5 miles) from the town of Simmernin the Rhein-Hunsrück district of Rhineland-Palatinateto the west of central Germany. Despite its name, the airport is situated over 120 km (75 miles) to the west of the city of Frankfurt(by road).
Cold WarFrankfurt-Hahn Airport was a frontline NATOfacility known as Hahn Air Base. Hahn Air Base was the home of the United States Air Force50th Fighter Wing (in various designations) for most of those years as part of the United States Air Forces in Europe(USAFE). It was one of several USAFE bases in Germany ( Zweibrücken, Ramstein, Sembach, Bitburg, Spangdahlem, and Rhein-Main) all within 100 km (62.5 miles) of each other. Beyond their location in the heart of US troop concentrations, these air bases were well situated to reach all locations within Europe and the Mediterranean region.
30 September 1993, most of Hahn Air Base was turned over to civil German authorities, the USAF retaining a small portion as a communications site. It is also frequently used for military charters, these flights being operated by, amongst others, Continental Airlinesand United Airlines.
The German government decided to turn the former airfield into a civil airport. One of the main investors in the development of the new Frankfurt-Hahn Airport was
Fraport AG, which primarily runs Frankfurt International Airport, the aim being to reduce the amount of traffic using that airport.
Hahn charges its airline operators less due to its remote location. This has made the airport popular with
low-cost carriers, especially Ryanairwhich uses the airport as a major hub.
Although its scheduled traffic is almost exclusively international flights, Hahn Airport does not carry the word "International" as part of its name.
The airport is not served by any railway, but there are bus connections to the main railway station in the following cities:
Frankfurt/Main(1h 45min, via Frankfurt International Airportapprox. every hour from 5:00AM to 12:30AM); Cologne(2h 15min – infrequent); Mainz(1hr 5min – infrequent), Koblenz(1hr 10 min – infrequent) and Trier(1hr 20 min – infrequent).
Hahn is fairly accessible by road, although the nearest
Autobahn(Highway) connections are approximately 25 miles (40 km.) to the west (A 1) or east (A 61). Parking and car rental are available at the airport.
Frankfurt-Hahn Airport can handle airplanes up to the size of an
Antonov An-124or Boeing 747cargo jet on a regular basis. The even larger Antonov An-225cargo transporter has paid visits in 2002 and 2003.
