The German regional airport in Lübeck has had quite an eventful history over the past decade. The airport is now completely in the hands of Winfried Stöcker, who bought the last remaining plots of land from the Hanseatic city of Lübeck.

The airport confirmed the transaction. The owner has thus fulfilled the contract that was concluded with the public sector. This means that Lübeck Airport is completely in private hands. Airport manager Jürgen Friedel told the Lübecker Nachrichten that this would give the airport more freedom of action.

Winfried Stöcker took over Lübeck Airport in 2016. The purchase agreement stipulated that areas owned by the Hanseatic city and leased from the airport could be bought in 2022. Stöcker has now taken this option. For the city of Lübeck, this should be the end of an inglorious past, because stability has only come about since Stöcker was in charge. Previously, two operators went bankrupt, with a company funeral organized and sold abroad.
