Braunschweig-Wolfsburg Airport is an airport in Braunschweig, Germany. Originally constructed by the German Air Ministry in the 1930s, it is located on the northern edge of Braunschweig, which is situated between Hanover and Magdeburg. Braunschweig Airport traditionally has been a major centre of gliding in Germany.The headquarters of the German Federal Aviation Office, the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt are located at Braunschweig-Wolfsburg Airport. Also, the Braunschweig University of Technology has some of the aeronautical departments on site.InfrastructureIts main runway is 2300m long and 30m wide. It also has a parallel grass runway of 900m by 30 m.In May 2009 the extension of the runway from 1680m to 2300m had received its final legal go-ahead. Some €38 million were envisaged for the airport upgrade. Despite strong resistance from local action groups, both Volkswagen and DLR pushed forward with the project in order to be able to use bigger than regional jets under all weather conditions in the future. While the DLR will fly a research Airbus A320 within their flight control and supervision programme from the airport, Volkswagen intends to utilise narrow body aircraft on its business routes instead of its current regional aircraft types. No plans to intensify commercial traffic from and to the airport have been made public yet.
