Increasing cost pressure and a weakening economy led to the insolvency of established airlines and tour operators. At the same time, Hamburg’s route network remains diverse and passengers want to travel as much as ever. For 2020, the airport expects the consolidation of traffic numbers to continue.

Hamburg Tourism promoting Hamburg as "city of contrasts"
“Hamburg is not only extremely international, it is also dynamic, diverse and full of exciting contrasts,” said Michael Otremba, Managing Director of Hamburg Tourismus GmbH. The city’s image is characterised by elegant villas along Lake Alster that contrast with the harbour. The same applies to culture and cuisine. Have a pizza for lunch and enjoy award-cuisine in the evening. The international music scene can easily be found during the Reeperbahn Festival as well as world-famous classical music stars at the Elbphilharmonie.
