Stuttgart Airport

The Stuttgart Airport (STR) is the primary facility serving the city of Stuttgart, and the sixth busiest airport in the country. Having seen planes depart from its runway since 1939, this airport has been a key transportation fixture for the state of Baden-Württemberg, and the south-western region of Germany for over 70 years. The Stuttgart Airport is a convenient and well-organised hub, where over 10 million passengers a year fly to over 100 direct destinations. There are around 55 airlines that operate flights out of Stuttgart’s four terminals, and if you depart from its gates, you can find yourself in cities located in the United States, Asia, Africa, and all throughout Europe.

All the terminals are within walking distance, and housed in the same building, and you’ll find that you can access a whole host of amenities in each. There are ATMs dotted all over the airport, but if you need to access more facilities, then there are two full-service banks in Terminal 1. You can also change over money at the currency exchange desks, send postcards from the post office, and ask questions about the city or the airport at the information desk.

If you want to communicate with friends and family, you can do so via the free WiFi available throughout the terminal buildings, or you can use the public telephones. Hungry travellers can find a good selection of eateries ranging from sit-down restaurants, bars, cafes, and fast food kiosks. Whilst shoppers can investigate a variety of high street retailers, as well as spend time taking advantage of the duty-free products available at this airport. There are also shops selling travel accessories, reading materials and confectionary for any immediate needs.

You can fly to Stuttgart with a variety of airlines, including Lufthansa, Eurowings, Air France, Qantas, airberlin, Emirates, Swiss Air, British Airways, Etihad Airways, Malaysia Airlines, KLM, Singapore Airlines, ANA, Turkish Airlines, and many more.
