Via EWMG, Mönchengladbach city administration has acquired a stake of almost 55 percent in Mönchengladbach Airport (MGL) from Düsseldorf Airport and is now the majority shareholder. The financial situation of the airport is secure until the end of 2020. Currently, plans for the development of the airport with a view to reducing losses are being prepared.
The objective is to continue the development of the airport in the field of “maintenance movements” and to strengthen the commercial site by attracting further aviation-related companies which will create new jobs. The airport also provides the ideal infrastructure for innovative uses such as electric flying. Almost 30 companies and public bodies with a workforce of about 650 people currently have facilities at the airport.
