Last year Weeze was in the black, but the corona pandemic will probably keep the airport busy for years. The city and the district are now to take the wings with six million euros.

The corona crisis is also likely to have put Weeze Airport in financial difficulties, because the airport needs around six million euros in support. These are to be raised by the city and district, reports the Rheinische Post.

In an interview with the medium, managing director Ludger van Bebber explains that as a privately financed airport you are not eligible to apply for the support program of the NRW Bank. You would probably already get funds from the Reconstruction Loan Corporation, but you need long-term and not short-term loans. The manager assumes that it will take at least four years before Weeze can achieve the values ​​of 2019 again. There is still no signal from the state government that private airports should also be supported.

Like van Bebber in conversation with the Rheinische Post Further explained, main customer Ryanair wants to offer around 2020 percent of the previous capacity in July 50. According to his information, flight operations are to be gradually increased back to the pre-crisis level. Only on the Morocco connections there is still no decision.
