Opened in 1912 and thus the oldest commercial airport in Germany, it is located approx. 9 kilometers north of Hamburg city center and approx. Ten kilometers south of the municipality of Norderstedt in Schleswig-Holstein. The best way to get to the terminal is via the B433 federal highway.
S-Bahn line 1 runs regularly between the main train station and the airport during the day, the journey time is approx. 25 minutes. During the night the route of the night bus line 606 runs. In addition, the HVV city bus lines 26, 39, 274 and 292 stop at the terminal and the bus lines 23, 34, 114 and 292 at the nearby Lufthansa base
. There is also a regular private shuttle bus service between the airport and the Hanseatic cities of Lübeck and Kiel.
After the founding of the then Hamburger Luftschiffhallen GmbH (HLG), a suitable site was also chosen in 1912. In the first year, the airfield was reserved for the airships customary at the time, but airplanes were also allowed to use the southeastern area of the area as early as 1913. In 1916, during the First World War, the hall burned down completely. The HLG rebuilt it, but was not allowed to use it due to the Versailles treaties.
In 1945 British allies took over the airport, also in cooperation with the American and French allies
built a temporary runway three years later to supply the population in Berlin’s western sector with food. In 1955, the German Lufthansa finally took over the Hamburg airport and at the same time built its own shipyard with the Lufthansa Technik Group for the repair, conversion and maintenance of the machines. This now has over thirty offshoots around the world. The head office is still based in Hamburg.
In the 1960s, the aim was to relocate the airport to Kaltenkirchen, due to the fact that capacities were exhausted and the airport area was built between several residential areas. However, this project was rejected again because the economic power of the Hanseatic city was primarily geared towards the service sector and the medium-sized companies in the metropolis were dependent on a city airport that was quickly accessible.
At the beginning of the 1990s, an expansion program for the modernization of the airport was worked out with the “HAM21” project. In the course of this program, the old Terminal 2 was torn down and rebuilt according to current standards. The renaming and simultaneous inauguration of the new Terminal 1 took place in spring 2005. Another renaming followed only a short time later with the old Terminal 4, today’s Terminal 2. However, the former Terminal 3 was demolished in this context in order to start construction of the new Airport Plaza. The old Terminal 1 building, which for a while was mainly used regularly for seasonal charter flight operations, is currently shut down for air traffic and is only rented for event locations.
