The joys of travelling can be manifold. Especially air travel. However, some ports of departure or arrival are massive hubs serving tens of millions of passengers, with all the trials and tribulations that entails. Dotted around the globe though, unique places can also be found, where the necessary formalities that lead to a flight are surprisingly smooth.
Düsseldorf possesses one such airport. Owned jointly by the city administration and private enterprise and with a strong management team, it seems that the blend works. Modern, light and open, Düsseldorf International airport is also very accessible. Only ten minutes by taxi from downtown, the terminals also connect well with the national rail system and local public transport.
Speedy check-in is facilitated by compact, interconnecting terminals and short distances. Amenities are of today's international standards with shopping possible right up to the gate. The airport also boasts a supermarket with opening hours second to none in the region, in or out of an airport.
One of the aspects defining Dusseldorf: "big city business, small town charm".
