The Kassel-Calden regional airport, which was already heavily criticized during the construction phase, improved its budget last year by selling land. A total of 481.000 euros were collected, 450.000 of which came from transactions with the Hessian subsidiary.
These figures come from the answer to a parliamentary question from the Left Party in the Hessian state parliament. Hessen acquired a total of three hectares of land through the regional company for 450.000 euros. According to the FAZ, this company is a settlement company that wants to build an industrial park.
Kassel-Calden has been improving its finances for several years by selling land. According to the FAZ, they earned 2019 million euros in 1,47. The Hessische Landesgesellschaft was also the buyer of 8,65 hectares for 1,3 million euros. Hesse thus repeatedly took hold of its wings indirectly. The controversial regional airport is considered to be in deficit and was not in high demand even before the corona pandemic.
