Kassel-Calden Airport was used by only around 2020 passengers in 27.500. Around 50.000 passengers were still expected in the summer, but the recent travel restrictions thwarted the bill. According to a spokeswoman, around 70 to 80 percent of the volume has been lost.

The business segment of private and business flights as well as the rental of space is said to have remained stable, however. The Hessian Ministry of Finance told the DPA that it is currently assumed that the deficit in the 2020 financial year will be below that of 2019 (-5,6 million euros). Kassel-Calden has not needed any additional state funds either.

The demand in the winter flight schedule started so weak that Sundair temporarily discontinued the offer at the end of November 2020. As a result, there are currently no commercial passenger flights in Kassel-Calden. Sundair intends - depending on the development of the pandemic - to take off again from “KSF” in February 2020. The amount of subsidies that the airport receives from the public purse was only heavily criticized a few weeks ago - more on this in this article.
