Arriving by Air

Take-off and landing: The quickest way to get to Stuttgart is by air. Stuttgart Airport is one of the most modern in Europe. 55 airlines fly to more than 120 destinations in 30 countries; some 10 million passengers annually use this gateway to Stuttgart.

The striking architecture of the terminals has won several awards, making Stuttgart Airport one of the most attractive in Europe. Short distances make travel easy and its wide variety of shops and restaurants make it a place worth exploring. What’s more, Stuttgart Airport is the only German airport with a Michelin-starred "top air" restaurant.

Unique in Europe: The Messe Stuttgart and the ICS International Congress Center Stuttgart are located in the direct vicinity of the airport.
Lines S2 and S3 of the rapid transit railway (S-Bahn), provide a direct link from the airport to the main railway station in the heart of the city, only 13 km (8 miles) away. Motorists can reach Stuttgart’s “Gateway to the World” via the A8 Karlsruhe – Munich motorway.

Stuttgart Airport is very conscious of its responsibility for the impact of its operations on its neighbours and the environment. For the airport operators, the main challenges are the continual reduction of noise and pollutant emissions and the protection of inshore waters and the countryside. The Flughafen Stuttgart GmbH is a member of the United Nations Global Compact and a partner in other sustainability initiatives.

Stuttgart Airport offers a number of services, such as:

  • Wöllhaf Conference, Banqueting and Business Centre in Terminal 1
  • Hotel and top-class catering services and restaurants
  • Service for the handicapped
  • VIP Service
  • Car rental services
