Location information for Hanover Airport

Hannover Airport, or HAJ for short, is nicknamed Langenhagen Airport as it is a very short drive from the small city of Langenhagen. It replaced a very basic wartime airfield that was right in the city. In 1973 two contemporary and efficient terminals were built. They became renowned in the industry for their smart design. Cheap car hire at Hannover Airport (HAJ) is available at several locations in the multiple terminals.

In 1998, Terminal C was made to help manage congestion. The new terminal includes eight new fully functional gates. HAJ can handle 33 aircraft around its tarmac at any given time and 20 aircraft can receive aircraft stands and jetways. All terminals are able to receive large planes like Boeing 747s. Terminal D was rebuilt for the British Royal Air Force. Military flights operate from this terminal.

In 2000, the S-Bahn was built to shuttle passengers between the airport and the city of Hamelin, using Hannover Central Station. Trains depart precisely every 30 minutes. This train service replaced the airport's previous shuttle bus service. The service was also extended even further in 2003 so that after serving Hamelin, it goes to the township of Paderborn. Taxis and car rental also operate from HAJ.

Mixed with flights from premier airlines, there is a lot of traffic from budget airlines. TUIfly in particular uses HAJ for its offices and many flights.

Cheap car hire at Hannover Airport (HAJ) is an interesting and efficient option as highways in Germany are very straightforward to navigate and have few speed limits. Renting a car is a good way to travel in Hannover and around the rest of Germany.
