In December 1997 the
Frankfurt Flughafen AG has bought a major part of the Hahn Airport.
Today (Nov. 2003) the 2nd passanger terminal is completed but it
looks like it is already to small for all the passangers. Ryanair
is the biggest airline on the airport but Hahn is getting more and
more popular for other (cheap) airlines.
Many of the
buildings on the base were torn down and parking lots can be found
in their places but that's the price for the progress. A lot of
conctruction is going on and the base is changing all the time.
I live about 200 miles from the base today and it is always very
interesting to see what's going on when I come to visit Lautzenhausen
and drive over the base. I am always on the base when I am around
because my mother and her husband have the Restaurant
Fairway Mediterrano at the golf course. By the way, when you
take a taxi from the airport
you may be sitting in the car with my father! He is driving a taxi
today. It looks like I will ever have something to do with the base.
