FMO Flughafen Münster/Osnabrück GmbH

In the heart of Westphalia and Europe 

Münster/ Osnabrück Airport borders on various regions in northwest Germany and also forms the interface between North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony. Due to this location, FMO has an attractive catchment area and can be easily reached by approximately 5 million people from the surrounding area. Visitors and guests from the nearby Netherlands also appreciate the location of the international airport and the region's tourist attractions.

FMO's strong infrastructure includes a modern terminal building, a new cargo building and 24-hour operations for all Chapter III (bonus) aircraft types. This distinguishes us from neighboring airports and allows our partner airlines to plan flights flexibly. Due to the 24-hour operations, FMO is also available for alternate landings (during the night) for all airlines.
