Dortmund Airport is just 10km from Dortmund, an enjoyable city with good restaurants, great shopping, a lively bar scene and a busy cultural programme. Daily flights with EasyJet provide an economical way to reach the region.
The city has received a significant increase in British visors in recent years thanks to direct flights from London Luton with EasyJet. The low-cost airline began flights in 2004.

Arriving and departing is a relaxed experience and moving on from the airport is fast and hassle free. There are especially good transport connections to Dortmund city centre. The airport has a couple of shops, cafés and restaurants.
