Hamburg Airport is also deep in the red this year. Managing director Michael Eggenschwiler expects a loss of around 100 million euros and says that one cannot be satisfied with it.
In the previous year, the north German airport had a deficit of 112 million euros due to the corona pandemic. At the same time, support from the public sector was received, so that the bottom line was a minus of 65 million euros.
The Federal Republic of Germany is currently not planning a new edition of the “Aviation Billion”, so that one assumes in Hamburg that one will remain seated on the loss that is being made this year. According to Norddeutschem Rundfunk, the capacity utilization of the Hanseatic airport is currently between 40 and 50 percent of the level of 2021. Company boss Eggenschwiler assumes that it will only be in the black again in 2023 and in 2025 at the earliest about 85 percent of the level of the boom year 2019 will achieve.
