Leipzig/Halle increases cargo volumes

Leipzig/Halle Airport has increased air cargo volumes for the fifteenth  consecutive year.

In 2019, Europe’s fifth-largest and Germany’s second-largest air cargo hub handled 1.2m tonnes, representing a year-on-year growth of 1.4 percent.


The growth is due to a combination of the presence of a DHL European hub at Leipzig/Halle and more than fifty non-DHL cargo airlines flying to over two hundred destinations worldwide every year.


To accommodate future growth, the next few years will see Leipzig/Halle invest €500 m in new aprons, logistics and office buildings in the northern and southern parts of the airport.
