Frankfurt Airport (IATA: FRA, ICAO: EDDF), known in German as Rhein-Main-Flughafen or Flughafen Frankfurt am Main, is located near Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It is the largest airport in Germany, and third largest in Europe, serving as an important hub for international flights from around the world. It is run by Fraport AG. The southern side of the airport, Rhein-Main Air Base, was a major airlift base for the United States from 1947 until late 2005. It is located 12 km from the downtown core. Frankfurt is a hub of Lufthansa, the German national carrier. Because of under-capacity in Frankfurt, Lufthansa divides traffic between Frankfurt and Munich's Franz Josef Strauß International Airport when possible. Frankfurt currently serves more destinations (265 non-stop destinations) than London's Heathrow Airport, but in terms of passenger traffic Frankfurt is third in Europe, behind London's Heathrow Airport and Paris's Charles de Gaulle Airport.

Dortmund Airport (IATA: DTM, ICAO: EDLW), is the international airport of Dortmund, Germany. Its slogan is Näher als man denkt (Closer than you think). Since 2006 it has been carrying the name "Dortmund Airport 21", in reference to the fact that Dortmund's utility company, DSW21, is its major shareholder. From late 2000 onwards, Dortmund Airport has experienced a drastic increase in air traffic. In the 1990s weekly service had been generally restricted to a few turboprop flights to destinations within Germany, as well as occasional charter flights to warm-weather destinations. Since 2000, several new airlines have commenced service to Dortmund, many with mainline jets. Most of the air traffic today is by low cost airlines operating Boeing 737 or Airbus A318/19/20/21 series aircraft to warm-weather destinations and business centers. The first mass carrier at Dortmund Airport was Air Berlin, which began flights to London, Milan, and Vienna in 2002, supplementing its leisure routes to the Mediterranean. EasyJet made Dortmund a hub in 2004, and Germanwings will follow in 2007. Air Berlin eventually ceased most non-leisure routes from Dortmund in 2005, but easyJet and Germanwings have taken these over or will do so by the Summer 2007 timetable.
