Stuttgart Airport Terminals

Stuttgart Airport was built in 1939 in replacement of Böblingen Airport. In 1945, It was taken by the United States Army, whose facilities were used during the Cold War. It wasn’t until 1948 when the Americans returned the airport facilities to the German authorities. Nowadays, there is still an American helicopter base, the Stuttgart Army Airfield.

After World War II the airport was expanded and the former terminal was finally replaced by the four passenger terminals that has nowadays.

Stuttgart airport is the main hub for the low cost airlines Germanwings and TUIFly, as well as for the Eurowings carrier. It serves either international and domestic flights.

It has 4 passenger terminals under one roof. They are located from east to west in the following order: T1 (including T1 west), T2, T3 and T4.
