The concept for the future of Rostock-Laage-Güstrow Airport has received the green light: The bodies of all three previous owners approved the privatization of the civil part of the airport. The Zeitfracht Group as the future owner welcomed these decisions on Friday.

“We are convinced of the future of the airport. We will maintain and expand both the infrastructure for the region and the existing jobs. As a very strongly logistics-oriented group of companies, we intend to further develop the RLG in precisely this direction. The construction of a logistics center for our trading company is a project that we are firmly in the planning stage. In addition, we will build on ideas to develop the location into a center for research and entrepreneurial activities in space, ”says Wolfram Simon-Schröter, Zeitfracht's board member.

The plans for the further development of the RLG as an additional logistics location of the Zeitfracht Group are primarily based on the idea of ​​closely interlinking air freight and transport by road and rail there. The civil part of Rostock-Laage Airport is operated on the basis of a joint use agreement with the German Armed Forces. This model is unique in Germany, according to Zeitfracht. Zeitfracht intends to actively promote the diversification of the company and the transformation of the regional airport into an innovation and technology location in the aerospace and renewable energies sectors.

In the past and especially since the beginning of the Corona crisis, the airport had only been operated at a high loss. The previous owners had therefore decided to initiate a so-called public expression of interest procedure. The aim was to find out whether a private company would be willing to invest in the airport. The Zeitfracht Group then submitted a corresponding offer and future concept.
